Answering a question raised by a reporter regarding the present crisis within the leaders of the state government, the chief minister also informed that talks are going on to sort the misunderstandings and reach a conclusion.
Though there might be misunderstandings, ministers are performing their duties as people’s representatives which show that their differences have not affected the governance. Any misunderstandings will be settled at the earliest with the consent of the Centre and financial situation of the government will also be made known to the people, he added.
Though there were signs of draught showing in the State which was worrying the state government as well as the people, it is a relief for the government as well as the people that the State has experienced rainfall though it is not sufficient yet. As such, the government is still purchasing extra pumps.
