Early Times Report

Rajouri, Feb 16: Two months after an influential Block Level Worker (BLW) working in Bagnoti area of Rajouri district was attached for fraudulent transfer of MNREGA funds worth lakhs into his personal accounts, Rural Development Department has failed to take any action against the accused as he enjoys political patronage.
Officials said the department has not only failed to take back charge from him but he continues to call the shots in Bagnoti area with regard to execution of MNREGA projects. The accused had fraudulently transferred money to the tune of Rs 17 lakhs in his personal account whereas anther few lakhs were found transferred in the personal account of the 'personal assistant' of the BLW.
Official documents reveal that the money was transferred into the personal accounts from the branch of Grameen Bank Bagnoti.
While the government had been initially silent on the scam, following a series of stories published by Early Times, the accused was placed under suspension. But till now there has been no further progress in the case.
Officials said that under procedure the concerned department was required to take back charge from the accused BLW, but accused had been threatening the senior officers in the name of his uncle, who is politically affluent.
Meanwhile the villagers of Bagnoti area have decided to file a complaint with the Chief Minister's grievance cell. "Lakhs of rupees meant for development of the area have been swindled into personal accounts by the accused in connivance with their politically affluent relatives and we shall call for a high level probe into the matter," the villagers said. Despite repeated attempts the accused BLW couldn't be contacted for comments.
