He was speaking at the review meeting of the developmental work held at Taluk Panchayat hall recently.

Addressing the meet he said that he has received complaints with regard to misappropriation of funds by the Social Forestry Department while implementing Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.

Stringent action will be taken against the officers if they do not submit the required documents on time, he warned.

“Excise Department officers have not taken any action to curb the illegal sale of liquor in the rural areas.”

“Misappropriations have taken place in the Watershed Department while constructing check-dams and digging the agriculture pits.”

“The land where the work has taken place should be inspected and action must be taken against the officers who have involved in misappropriation,” he insisted.

He also threw light on misappropriation by Pragathi Agriculture and Rural Development Association.

If action is not taken against the culprits then complaint will be filed with the police, he said.

Small anganwadis will be set up on the priority basis as per the demands of the Women and Child Welfare Department.

As per the new scheme by the government, Rs 1,000 monthly pension will be given to the unmarried women and the homeless.

The beneficiaries should make use of the scheme, asked Kanak Raj.

“The government will provide Rs 3,700 for the constriction of toilets in the rural areas.

The rural folk should make use of it,” he said in the review meeting.
