Monitor use of funds in rural schemes: Agatha to NE CMs

NEW DELHI, Aug 31: Funds for most of the rural development schemes in the north-eastern region were misused and misappropriated. In this regards, Union Minister of State for Rural Development Agatha Sangma has written a letter to all of the chief ministers of the region, including that of Asom, requesting them to monitor and evaluate fund utilization under various schemes in their respective States.

In her letter, the Union minister said: “You will agree with that a perusal of the statement reveals that the performance of your State in respect of some of these schemes leaves much to be desired. Hence, I consider it appropriate to draw your kind attention to enable you to kindly look into the matter personally and to monitor the schemes of the Ministry of Rural Development.”

The minister further mentioned: “I am of the opinion that with your personal involvement and active cooperation, a radical transformation can be brought about successful implementation of these schemes of the Ministry of Rural Development, and in case any other project or proposal pertaining to your State is pending with our ministry, kindly do let me know to enable me to get the same expedited.” THE SENTINEL
