MGNREGS Workers Surrender Job Cards

IMPHAL, Mar 3: Complaining that they have been given job for only seven days, people of Sangaiyumpham today surrendered their MGNREGS job cards to the Thoubal DC.

Around 350 MGNREGS job card holders of Sangaiyumpham Part II Gram Panchayat surrendered their job cards to the Thoubal DC through the Thoubal district Project Officer this afternoon.

The disappointed job card holders also submitted a memorandum to the DC.

The memorandum complained that even as MGNREGS has been implemented for the last three years (2008-2011), the job card holders got only 7/8 days of job in a year.

It urged the authority concerned to take up necessary actions with regard to the withholding the benefits of the Centre’s flagship program from its rightful beneficiaries.

Speaking to media persons, some of the irate job card holders expressed strong suspicion whether the Pradhan and Members of the Gram Panchayat have swindled the wages for the remaining days of the year on which no work was done.
