Mass rally against irregularities in MGNREGS

Kalahandi: Alleging that they do not get job cards, people of Thuamulrampur had organized a protest rally here on Sunday.

Though some had applied for the job card under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), no card reached them even after long wait. And even if one gets the job card, he/she doesn’t get employment, they alleged.

“Though three months are passed after we applied for job cards, we could not receive one yet”, said a resident of the village.

The demonstrators also complained that though they have conveyed their grievance to the administrative officials, it bore no fruit.

However, denying the allegations, the Additional Collector of the district has said that the scheme is being successfully implemented and he would take action if any such incident comes to his knowledge.
