SHILLONG, March 25: Scribes in Shillong have refused to report on the budget of the Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council (KHADC) after the Council failed to provide copy of the budget.

The budget for the year 2019-20 was tabled by the deputy Chief Executive Member, Pyniaid Sing Syiem during the first day of the budget session held here on Monday.

Journalists were asked to collect a copy of the budget from the officials of the Council soon after the budget was being presented in the House.

However to their surprise, the Council officials refused to provide any copies of the budget even though they were told that this is important for the journalists.
