A two-member Central team will be in Sonbhadra from January 4 to January 7 to look into the complaints of anomalies in the implementation of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.
The team will be headed by GS Sharma, consultant, MGNREGS, Ministry of Rural Development and will have NK Yadav, a national-level monitor for the ministry.
“We have been asked to look into the implementation of MGNREGA in Sonbhadra and will be visiting the place next week,h said Sharma. gThe nature of anomalies, if any, will be clear once we reach and we will submit out report directly to the Union Ministry.”
Officials in the state Rural Development department said a committee was formed by the government about six months ago to probe similar complaints. Headed by retired IAS officer Vinod Shankar Chaubey, it was to look into the exceptionally high expenditure — about Rs 250 crore — in the district along with complaints that no work was done at several places though money was spent.
Officials said Chaubey had made some interesting observations about the workings of government machinery in the district. The committee had submitted the report about two months ago, but no action has been taken on its recommendations.
