Chhatarpur (Representative of New Zealand). MGNREGA works are being conducted in the district in a completely fake manner. Monitoring of their quality is going on only on paper. The Assistant Engineers and Deputy Engineers of MNREGA posted in the eight Janpad Panchayats of the district do not reside at the district headquarters. Most of the assistant engineers and deputy engineers live at the district headquarters. Due to this, the collector had issued notices to the assistant engineers and sub-engineers of MNREGA posted in Bijawar and Bakswaha, but this matter is not only about two district panchayats. Surprisingly, the Assistant Engineers and Deputy Engineers posted in the Janpad Panchayats of the district are also allotted government houses at the district headquarters and they are living in these indiscriminately. He reaches the district headquarters only once in a week.
Posting in Lavkushnagar and Residence in Rajnagar Chhatarpur:
The Assistant Engineers and Deputy Engineers of MNREGA posted in Janpad Panchayat Lavkushnagar, Rajnagar, Badamalhara, Bakswaha, even Gorihar are residing in Chhatarpur. KS Khare, assistant engineer of Lavkushnagar, lives in Green Avenue Colony in Chhatarpur and does daily updos. SK Tripathi is an assistant engineer in Bijawar and lives in Peptec Town and does daily updos. Similarly, OP Dubey, an assistant engineer posted in Janpad Panchayat Naogaon, lives in Peptec Town Bijawar Naka. BK Nayak, an assistant engineer posted in Gaurihar, 100 km from the district headquarters, lives near Radio Colony. Similarly, DK Bhandari, assistant engineer posted in Janpad Panchayat Bakswaha, is living in Green Avenue Colony of Chhatarpur at a distance of more than 100 km. ML Ahirwar, an assistant engineer posted in Rajnagar Janpad Panchayat, also does up-down from Chhatarpur itself.
The funny thing is that works worth crores of rupees are going on in the district under MNREGA and it is up to the Deputy Engineer and Assistant Engineers to look after these works, but the Assistant Engineers and Deputy Engineers posted in all the districts of the district do not stay at the headquarters and evaluate at home. and carrying out inspection. Last day in Bijawar, the approved stop dams in two gram panchayats were changed due to irregularities in site selection. Whereas works had been approved in the check dams approved earlier. The collector’s order is not having any effect on these sub-engineers and assistants, who have caused a loss of crores of rupees to the government.
Assistant Engineers living in Government Residences:
The Assistant Engineers and Deputy Engineers posted in MNREGA do not live at their district headquarters, this information is also known to the District Panchayat CEO and Collector. It can also be said because the assistant engineers posted in the districts have been allotted even the government accommodation in Chhatarpur. NK Sharma, an assistant engineer posted in Badamalhara Janpad Panchayat, lives in a government residence in Chhatarpur. Similarly, Deputy Engineer Rajni Pochkar posted in Janpad Panchayat Lavkushnagar is living in the allotted government residence in Irrigation Colony Chhatarpur. She rarely visits Lavkushnagar.
Instructions have been given to all district CEOs in this regard. They will verify the stay of AE and sub-engineers at the headquarters, after which legal action will be taken against the AEs and deputy engineers if they do not meet at the district headquarters.
