New Delhi: Accusing the Uttar Pradesh government of adopting a "lackadaisical approach" in implementing the MPLAD scheme in the state, an RLD MP has supported the idea of social audit of the programme.

In a letter to Minister of Statistics and Programme Implementation Srikant Jena, RLD MP Jayant Chaudhary has alleged that the implementation of the scheme in UP and his Mathura constituency has been negatively affected by the poor approach of the implementing agencies and the district administration.

Supporting the call for social audit of the MPLAD scheme made by the Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh recently, Chaudhary called for institutionalising a third party social review process.
