Congress seems baffled as Lok Sabha elections are approaching and they have nothing to boast about in their 10 years of governance.
In an effort to return with the original charm of its flagship rural job guarantee scheme in wake of the approaching general elections in 2014, the government has made some modifications in the scheme including construction of houses for the deprived and also construction of individual toilets for all the NREGA card holders.
The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) assures 100 days of employment to every rural family each year.
An amount of Rs. 10,000 would be given for the construction of individual toilets.
Rural development minister Jairam Ramesh announced on Monday that any person who has the MNREGA card and does not have a toilet at home, will be given Rs. 10,000 for constructing a toilet.
Other modifications include construction of structures for women SHG federations as a permitted activity.
The government has also made it compulsory to pay the wages in 15 days and if the officers fail to do so, they will have to pay fines.
It seems the Congress is quite baffled as Lok Sabha elections are approaching and they have nothing to boast about in their 10 years of governance. So, they are digging out old things to gain numbers and the ‘immature’ Rahul Gandhi is trying to save his party’s face on the basis of sacrifices made by his father and grandmother centuries ago.
Dear little Rahul baba, people are interested in what has your government and ministers done in the last years rather than taking history lessons from you.
