Special Gram Sabha shd be used to raise objections, if any...

Sanjay Sharma from Chhattisgarh is telling us about Special Gram Sabha being planned in the state in all 9734 Gram Sabhas from 20th August. He says in these special meetings representatives are supposed to give details of expenses of the year 2010-11 and should be used to raies objections if any. He says it is generally seen that these meetings are a mere formality and Gram Sabahs are just peddaling the Govt agenda set from above.

NREGA non payment: NHRC issues notice to state

Sanjay Sharma from Surguja in Chhattisgarh says National Human Rights Commission has issued a notice to state on the case of Somar Sai. He reminds us that when the case was first raised in Swara Govt of India had sent a notice to state but because the letter had a misspelling the Govt had replied saying there is no one with that name. Mr Sai died in 2008 and his wife Laxmi is still running from pillar to post to collect his NREGA wages. He also thanks the person who took the case to NHRC. Sanjay ji can be reached at 09754332440

Action taken report on NREGA website misguides people

Sanjay Sharma says he had heard a report from Shivram Sonvani sometime back saying that NREGA wages of Rs 2,49,000 of 264 people from Surguja was unpaid and there was no action from the authorities. I did some follow up on it after collecting more details from Shivam but was shocked to discover yesterday on official NREGA website that the complaint on this subject by me is not clear and the concerned people can not be reached. I can guarantee that I had sent all the details to authorities through e mail and they are trying to mislead here. For more Sanjay Ji can be reached at 09425582050
