Kiphire District Congress Committee (KDCC) in a district rally held March 6 at Kiphire Town hall observed that supplies of materials under NREGA scheme - by implementing agencies were against the norms of the scheme's Act. DCC president, S Thritsali Sangtam and general secretary, A Limsangwu Yimchunger in a release alleged that out of 100 days wages only six days wage was provided to VDBs, adding it was objectionable and unacceptable. KDCC also asserted that it would appeal union government and all its implementing agencies to speed up for implementation of 100 days manual labour payment to all the rural beneficiaries. KDCC, in connection with this appealed both central government and implementing agencies to avoid the intervention of state government "manipulation tactics" in the scheme by providing materials and tools. DCC leaders also observed that certain "objectionable" discrepancies were found in the department of social welfare under ICDS. KDCC statement alleged that despite water reservoir was not constructed in "important schools" under Kiphire the department of social welfare had made the payment. DCC with regard to this demanded that department should find out the contractor, who received the payment without constructing, and authority responsible in this financial scandal and take appropriate action. Maintaining that social welfare department has a "vision" to provide education to rural masses, DCC leaders said that money amounting to Rs. One lakh seventy five thousand against each Angawadi centre had not been executed by the contractors. Further it appealed department contractors to verify all the villages and construct Angawadi centre as per specified. KDCC cautioned that failing which department authorities and contractors would be wholly responsible over "massive financial corruption." Expressing dismay over issue of Local Area Development Programme (LAPD), district Congress asserted that it has become MLAs private fund, adding respective MLAs consumed it without any work or without any payment to the public. It also expressed dismay over the withdrawal of Rs. 15 lakh against Kiphire town development and Rs. 30 lakh against Pungro town development fund allegedly by parliamentary secretary, T Torechu. Meanwhile, KDCC has lauded UPA government for implementing various schemes and programmes including approval of 60 government primary school building extension and BRGF.
