MGNREGA outlay slashed in Tripura: CPM

By Correspondent

AGARTALA, July 2 - The CPI (M) alleged that the Narendra Modi-led government has substantially slashed down Tripura�s outlay under national flagship programme- MGNREGA.

The allegation came only three-day after Deputy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma�s statement of phenomenal success in the national flagship programme in the state.

According to Dev Barman, the state has generated 56.03 lakh man-days under MGNREGA till June 27, 2019 and the state has set a target of generating three crore man-days.

However, state�s MGNREGA allocation had started reducing from 2016-17 FY. An amount of Rs 1358.98 crore was allocated for the state during 2015-16 FY while it was reduced to Rs 1016.29 crore in the year 2016-17 and Rs 504.40 crore was earmarked for 2017-18 FY.

A senior party leader said the Modi government has not increased state�s outlay for MGNREGA even after BJP-IPFT government came to power last year. �The Centre has allocated Rs. 442.54 crore for the year 2018-19 but the state has received Rs. 150.14 crore so far. It shows the state is being deprived by the BJP government�, he said on Tuesday.

The CPI(M) also sharply criticised the BJP-IPFT government for befooling people as it has failed to keep its promise to increase wage to Rs 340. �It had promised to increase MGNREGA wage to Rs 340 during the 2018 Assembly elections, but it has increased to Rs 192 from Rs. 177. It is nothing but a sheer example of cheating the people�, he said.
