Govt needs to tell people about NREGA Lokpals

Sanjay Sharma from Gram Adhikar Manch says Chhattisgarh Govt has appointed Lokpal (ombudsman) for NREGA but has made no effort to tell people about it. Lokpals have recieved no complaint so far. The rights and duties of Lokpal are also not clear. He says why not Lokpals start looking at old complaints made in various forums and fears that if it continues like this then after sometime Govt may close down Lokpals saying there is nothing wrong in NREGA!
