AGARTALA: Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Debbarman said the money flow from Centre in the MGNREGA scheme has reduced as compared to the period of the previous Left Front government but claimed that the volume of work has increased considerably.
He added that the main aim of the present Government is to create a clean environment in the villages where the residents will be self sufficient. The money is being spent to create permanent assets for the villages and the Central government also recognized the achievement. Eight awards from the Rural Development Department of the Centre prove that the MGNREGA works in the State is proceeding in right direction.
He was addressing a gathering after inaugurating an RCC bridge on river Howra to connect Kala Bagan and Rabicharn Thakur Para in Jirania sub-division on Saturday. The bridge constructed at a cost of Rs 75 lakh will be immensely beneficial for thousands of people residing on both the sides of the river.
Deputy Chief Minister alleged that a section of politically vested interest is conspiring to create political and communal unrest in the State. Stating that such forces are spreading various kinds of rumours, he advised the people not to be misguided by them.
