Alleging that there has been massive loot of funds under the MNREGA in Bihar, the RJD today asked the JD-U government to issue a white paper detailing utilisation of Rs 8110.84 crore under the central flagship scheme between 2007 and 2012.
The MNREGA has flopped in Bihar due to ‘loot’ of funds under the scheme by the official machinery as pointed out by the CAG in its report, the RJD chief national spokesperson, Mr Ramkripal Yadav said.
The irregularities in implementation in the central flagship scheme in Bihar as highlighted by the
national auditor deserves response from the state government which should bring out a white paper that details as to how it has spent Rs 8,110.84 crore under MNREGA in 534 blocks of the
state between 2007 and 2012, he said.
The state should also explain as to who is responsible for Bihar being deprived of funds, the RJD spokesman, said.
