AGARTALA, March 25 (TIWN): In yet another setback to the CPI (M) led state government REGA workers of North Bodhjungnagar under Lefunga Police Station today locked the Panchayat office alleging irregularities in MGNREGA wages.

 The REGA workers alleged that they are not getting the REGA wages for the last couple of months and the concerned Panchayat members has been playing a role of a silent spectator leading to massive irregularities in REGA payment.

Earlier, allegation was raised against the Panchayat bodies and local CPI-M leaders for misappropriating huge MGNREGA funds in different Panchayats under Ompi Nagar block.

A section of workers have alleged that the central government allocated a large amount of fund for the poor NREGA workers but the Panchayat chairmen, CPI-M local leaders and REGA masters are plundering huge funds without implementing the works accordingly.

According to the NREGA workers, the management committee embezzled a huge fund from their payment by depriving the local villagers.

It is mentionable here that the state Tripura is already under the limelight of massive corruptions and scams in MGNREGA fund. And besides, such irregularities in REGA wages under almost every Panchayats of the state are often coming out highlighted where the workers are being deprived at large and often they show a protest in front of the Panchayats. But the administration has been playing a role of a silent spectator, with the state govt. leaving no stones unturned.
