Lucknow : Congress state president Ajay Kumar Lallu, who has continuously taken the Yogi Adityanath government of Uttar Pradesh under siege, has made a big allegation that after the formation of the BJP government, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGA) budget and giving employment has been continuous. A decline is taking place. Lallu said on Thursday that in the current financial year, 48 per cent employment in MNREGA has decreased, while corruption has also increased in it.
He said that there is also a crisis in the payment of MNREGA workers, he cited the report of the International Monetary Fund and said that the crisis of livelihood in front of rural families is going towards dire, due to less purchasing power, the expenditure is less. Due to this, the economic slowdown is increasing, on the other hand the villagers are facing many difficulties, while the government is avoiding answering the questions by misleading them with the help of continuous lies on the issue of employment and MNREGA. He said that whatever BJP promises to give, they snatch it from the public.
Lallu further said that the announcements of providing work in MNREGA on the return of skilled and unskilled workers to their home state during the Corona crisis have proved to be completely false. The situation remained that by cutting the allocated budget by 35 percent compared to last year, no stone was left unturned to make rural employment in crisis, today this is the reason why MNREGA has been unable to provide work to the people, only those who get work. Even their payments are not being made on time.
