Gurdaspur, October 5
The much-hyped Vigilance and Monitoring Committee meeting of this district had to be postponed as the Deputy Commissioner (DC) had to rush to Chandigarh forcing the Gurdaspur MP Partap Bajwa to defer the proceedings to October 12.

Congress MLAs, who represent five of the total 10 assembly segments of this district, claimed that the there were a lot of irregularities in central schemes and all these would be brought to the fore next time.

All legislators, irrespective of their political affiliations, are required to attend the deliberations where the progress of schemes like Indira Awaas Yojna, MGNREGA and Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna are discussed threadbare by officials and representatives of the people.



EARLIER STORIES

However, as per tradition, the SAD-BJP legislators seldom attend meetings in this district as they are presided over Partap Singh Bajwa, a Congress Member Parliament (MP).

In todayís deliberations the issue of low utilisation of funds meant for the Central Government was to come up. Also on the agenda was the alleged misuse of funds meant for the Indira Awaas Yojya (IAY) scheme by the Sarpanch of Sahari village falling in Dhariwal block. The BDPO, in gross violation of norms, had directly credited an amount of Rs 35 lac to the account of the village Sarpanch, a development which had irked Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, MLA of Dera Baba Nanak.
