New Delhi: With a survey by the Centre
detecting irregularities in the implementation of UPA`s
flagship NREGA scheme in Bihar, Congress today sought a CBI
probe into such "blatant misuse of central funds" in the
AICC in charge for Bihar Jagdish Tytler said that
Congressmen in the state will highlight such misuse of funds
and take people of the state into confidence over the issue.
"Nothing less than a CBI inquiry will do," he told
The survey report prepared by the monitoring division
of Ministry of Rural Development has revealed several
irregularities in implementing the programme in the Lakhisarai
It said that there were cases where funds have been
exhausted without any work on the ground apart from
duplication of work and poor financial discipline.
Noting that state and district level monitoring have
had no impact, the survey said that there has hardly been any
successful prosecution of defaulters giving a wrong message to
the local populace.
Tytler said such anomalies have come to light in
several districts and that his party was keeping a close watch
on the utilisation of the central funds.
Tytler, who is said to be not on good terms with state
PCC Chief Anil Sharma, also dismissed talks of his differences
with the latter.
When pointed out that Sharma`s supporters are alleging
that the AICC in-charge is encroaching upon PCC work through a
Coordination Committee, Tytler said such committees exist in
other states as well.
"Even Sharma is a member of the committee and there is
no encroachment of PCC works," he said.
