Tripura calls for restoration of funds under central schemes

Tripura has urged the Centre to restore the funds allocated under central schemes after the latter curtailed funds required for the construction of roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY), a Tripura minister said here on  Wednesday.

“The union rural development ministry was supposed to give Rs.500 crore to construct 601 km of new roads and the upgradation of existing roads by 60 percent during the current financial year. But the ministry after repeated persuasion agreed to provide Rs.190 crore only,” Tripura Public Works Department Minister Badal Choudhury said.
