Shillong, Jul 19 (UNI) The ruling Meghalaya Progressive Alliance (MPA) today came under sharp criticism from the Khasi Students' Union (KSU) for the appointment of ''excess number of chairmen and vice-chairmen in different boards and corporations.'' In a statement issued here, the union termed the appointment of excess number of chairmen and vice-chairmen in different boards and PSUs as ''misuse of public money.'' The KSU statement came in the backdrop of Leader of Opposition D D Lapang and even Legislators of the coalition government expressing concern over the excess appointment of chairmen, vice-chairmen and deputy chairmen by the government.

Mr Lapang, a former Chief Minister, accused the government of increasing the number of appointees as chairmen in various boards by three-folds.

''It is pretty sad to see that though this government is trying to project itself as people-friendly, the reality shows the opposite.

The government cannot misuse public money to satisfy its party members by giving them posts of chairmen and vice-chairmen,'' KSU general secretary Hamlet Dohling said in a statement issued here.

The money going into payment of salaries of chairmen and vice-chairmen should be used for infrastructural development in rural areas of the state, the KSU leader pointed out.
