Economy stability unpredictable with COVID: Conrad Sangma

Sangma said the GST collection for the state has jumped to Rs 90 crore compared to last year’s at Rs 60 crore during the same period. “It is a positive indication. It will really take sometimes and nobody can really predict but slowly we are seeing some positive indication”.

Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Saturday said it is not possible for anybody to predict when the economy will stabilize due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is difficult to say as there are many factors involved and COVID itself is an issue which we are still struggling with. We have been able to some extent to contain it in our state but yet it still finds a way through and is still affecting people and lots of states are seeing a second wave coming in,” Sangma told reporters.

“Therefore, it is not possible for anybody to predict when the economy will stabilize and return to normalcy but we can only hope that by making sure that we are very strict in our individual behaviours we will work to ensure safety is maintained and see that the economy also stabilizes,” he stated.

Sangma said the GST collection for the state has jumped to Rs 90 crore compared to last year’s at Rs 60 crore during the same period. “It is a positive indication. It will really take sometimes and nobody can really predict but slowly we are seeing some positive indication,” he added.
