Tripura Budget session from March 18

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, March 1 - The Budget session of Tripura Assembly would begin on March 18 as the Cabinet approved the proposal on Tuesday.

The session is expected to get over by the first week of next month.

Briefing media-persons here after the Cabinet meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Tapan Chakraborty said the Council of Ministers approved convening of the Budget session from March 18.

�The Business Advisory Committee will finalize the business of the ensuing Budget session,� he said. Apart from placing a full-fledged Budget for 2016-17 FY, the government will also table the report of the Yusuf Commission in the upcoming session.

The Yusuf Commission was constituted to investigate the assassination of the then Health Minister Bimal Sinha and his brother Bidyut Sinha by NLFT militants way back in 1998 at Abhanga in Dhalai district�s Kamalpur subdivision.

Despite persistent demand by the Opposition parties, the government did not make the report public. Later, the High Court of Tripura, following a PIL, asked the government to lay the Yusuf Commission�s report in the Assembly within the next three months.

It may be noted here that Finance Minister Bhanu Lal Saha is ailing and is now in Delhi for medical tests before undergoing surgery at the AIIMS.

The Cabinet approved proposals for filling up altogether 386 posts in some departments, including Industries and Commerce.

While 106 Gr-A and Gr-C posts have been created for upcoming Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) at Bishramganj, Teliamura, Kamalpur and Longthorai Valley, 143 posts have been created for the existing ITIs. Chakraborty said if faculty members are appointed, four ITIs would start functioning from the next academic session.
