Raj Bhavan spokesman said that the letter has been written by the Governor to the Chief Minister on June -5.

“The Hon’ble Governor has written a letter to the Hon’ble Chief Minister requesting him to adopt appropriate austerity measures in the State economy and reduce the wasteful expenditure so that more resources are made available for battling COVID 19 and bringing the economy back on track,” the spokesman said. “In the letter, Hon’ble Governor has said that the spread of pandemic COVID-19 has thrown various challenges before the state which were never faced before,” he added.

“The pandemic has dented the economy severely. In the prevailing scenario, it becomes an imperative for the state to bring in greater economy in the expenses and set an example,” the spokesman said.

The Governor has said that the need of the hour is to make available greater resources towards COVID – 19 relief measures and for reviving the economy.

“In his letter Hon’ble Governor said that he had also instructed Raj Bhavan to adopt austerity measures to reduce expenditure so as to give some relief to the State exchequer,” he added.
