NREGA: Built road on my land and did not even pay wages

My name is Chitman Baria. My father’s name is Amar Singh Baria. My village is Barla in Ghanas panchayat in Turaikalla block of Bolangir district of Odisha. Last year an NREGA work came to our village and they built a road on my land. They asked to work on that road and said they will give wages. I worked for one and half month but have not got any wages yet. When I ggo to ask for money they call me maoist and have also taken away my job card. Baria Ji can be reached at 09437429800
