Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Thursday said funds for development projects under MLAs’ Local Area Development Funds would be released within a fortnight.
    
"I have issued directions to the finance department in this regard," Munda informed the state assembly. Replying to JMM MLA Stephen Marandi’s query as to who was responsible for lack of quorum in the house on Wednesday, he said "I discussed with the officials. Funds for developmental projects, not only under MLAs funds but also on other projects, will be released within 15 days."
     
Stating that the representatives of Finance Department, Public Accounts Committee and the office of Accountant General meet time to time to thrash out problems, he said the AG had approved Rs 7,900 crore out of Rs 8,000 in which objections were raised.
