Meghalaya government has prioritised education and health in the next financial year and a slew of measures will be taken up for strengthening these two vital areas for overall development, Chief Minister Mukul Sangma told the Assembly today. The Chief Minister, who also holds the finance portfolio, said the Centre has sent a letter to him indicating clearance for an Asian Development Bank funding programme which "revolves around health and education". "Huge amount of money will flow in (Asian Development Bank funds)", Sangma said; during the course of his reply to discussions on the proposed budget presented on 19th March, Monday.
According to the Chief Minister, the ADB funding would include building of infrastructure and imparting adequate training to teachers all over the state. The state government had proposed a plan outlay of Rs 747 crore for the education department alone apart from a non-plan outlay of Rs 506 crore, the highest allocation so far. Emphasising on strengthening the education sector, he said, "the issues of high rate of school dropouts and distressing pass percentage among students have been `eye-openers' for the government".
