40% not paid wages in NREGA in Surguja in Chhattisgarh

Manish Rai from Ambikapur Chhattisgarh says I had reported about death of Santosh Bhoi in CGnet Swara 3 days back whose father Pitbasu Bhoi did not get any wages after working for 100 days in MGNREGA. He says I would like you to know that 3 days have passed but no government official have visited the family of Pitbasu Bhoi yet and he has not been paid any wages either. He says more than 40% laborers remain to be paid their wages in MGNREGA in Surguja district
