Bhubaneswar, Oct 23 (LocaLWire): BJP’s MP from Bhubaneswar, Aparajita Sarangi, demanded an impartial inquiry into the alleged irregularities in allotment of houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) scheme in Begunia block of Khurda district.
In a letter to state Panchayati Raj minister, Pratap Jena, which she also tweeted, Sarangi highlighted the irregularities and sought his intervention in the matter.
‘Right people must get benefits in right manner.
No corruption, plz,’(sic) Sarangi tweeted.
‘Eligible applicants have been intentionally deleted from the approved list. Moreover, ineligible households, who have been allotted pucca houses earlier have received second allotment,’ she said.
‘The Orissa High Court had instructed the Collector of Khordha and the BDO of Begunia to take decision on deletion of beneficiaries in accordance with the law within a period of six weeks.’
However, no action has yet been taken in this regard, said Sarangi, a former bureaucrat.
The allegation of sanctioning of PMAY to ineligible households and depriving the needy is matter of grave concern, she said and requested the minister to take appropriate action as early as possible.
The system may also be streamlined so that target of universal inclusion of real beneficiaries is ensured and ‘right’ beneficiaries are selected, she said.
