    Union Minister asks for CBI probe to find out MNREGA irregularities in U.P.

    U.P government received a huge amount of Rs. 6500 to 7000 crores under centrally sponsored MNREGA scheme for rural employment. A large scale anomalies have been reported specially in Gonda, Balrampur and Sonbhadra districts. Jairam Ramesh, the Union Minister had earlier tried to probe into it during Mayawati's regime. However, he could not get requisite response from the then government. The Minister has now written to Akhilesh hoping that a CBI probe would be ordered to find out the extent of misappropriation of funds under this scheme.

    HamaraUP members may express their view if Akhilesh should oblige the central Minister, thereby sending a strong message that scams and corruption cannot be tolerated in UP now.

    Hello Sukhdev sir,

    Large scale corruption in MNREGA scheme was one of the major corruption charges which the mayawati government faced during its ruling period of 5 years. If New chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh Yadav want to send a right signal, he should provide complete support to any enquiry or any other kind of support to the central government.
