Modi government slammed by Swaraj Abhiyan over delay of MGNREGA payments

Lawyer Prashant Bhushan and Social Activist Yogendra Yadav of Swaraj Abhiyan pointed out at the delay of MGNREGA payments thereby depriving the workers of their rights. The report released by a NGO pointed out at the willful misrepresentation of delays in wage payments, incomplete calculation of the full extent of compensation due to workers and the under provisioning of budgets for the program. The report stated lack of adequate funds is one of the major reasons for MGNREGA being derailed from its core objective of being a demand driven program. Which in turn results in the compromise of payments of farmers on time as well as payment of compensation for delay.
