KISHTWAR, Apr 20: A prominent youth leader of District Kishtwar, Joginder Bhandari has urged Lt. Governor to take immediate action against the Block development officer RDD block Bunjwah for misuse of his official position by way of making material payment under MGNERGA during the year 2018-19 in favour of Sarpanch and ward members.
Bhandari in his statement has said that the RDD officials of block Bunjwah have made material payments under MGNERGA during the year 2018-19 in favour of Sarpanch and ward members of Panchyat Kewa RDD block Bunjwah.
He said that the material payments under MGNERGA have been misappropriated by the concerned Sarpanch and ward members of Panchyat Kewa which was supposed to be paid to the job card holders. It may be worth to mention here that the job card holders of Panchyat Kewa have purchased material from their own pockets but they have not been paid the material payments by the concerned Sarpanch and ward members in whose accounts payment of material under MGNERGA during the year 2018-19 have been made.
The concerned Sarpanch and ward members of Panchyat kewa have been nominated as vandors by the concerned VLWs which has caused huge loss to the State exchequer under MGNERGA scheme.
He urged upon the Deputy commissioner Kishtwar to hold an immediate enquiry as to how the RDD officials of RDD block Bunjwah have nominated Sarpanch and ward members of Panchyat Kewa as vandors. This is due violation of guidelines of MGNERGA, said Joginder Bhandari a prominent youth leader of District Kishtwar.
