Government officials worked on second Saturday to clear pending bills.

Officials of Horticulture, Agriculture, Sericulture, and Fisheries Departments were seen examining documents and preparing the bills to be submitted to the Treasury on Monday, which is the deadline to submit the bills.

The Joint Director of the Agriculture Department, Deputy Director of Horticulture Department, Assistant Director for fisheries and various heads of departments were seen working along with the officials. According to official sources, it was not a last minute effort to submit the bills.
