Shillong, Mar 11: Tempers flared during question hour on relaxation for appointments in Government Sector with Chief Minister Conrad Sangma calling KHNAM MLA Adelbert Nongrum ‘melodramatic.’
While posing a supplementary question, Adelbert urged the state government to be ‘serious’ on the matter.
Irked by his comment, the Chief Minister responded back by saying that in their reply they are always serious because the government is ‘accountable to the house and people of the state.
“Please ask the member not to be melodramatic, we are wasting time, obviously we all are serious here. If he thinks just by raising his voice, he thinks he is only the serious person out here,” he said.
The Chief Minister in his reply to the question by Mawkaiaw MLA Nujorki Sungoh, on upper age limit relaxation as proposed by the United Democratic Party, had stated that the government is examining the matter.
“Every decision has an impact in different ways so government has to be careful before taking a step to minimise cons,” he added.
