Ranchi: The opposition Congress has alleged that the welfare schemes being run by the Central government are in a bad state in Jharkhand.  The party made the observation after Vigilance Committee reviewed the Central schemes.

The first meeting of Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee’s Vigilance Committee, headed by Committee president KN Jha, was held on Friday at the party headquarters.

Notably, two panels - Coordination Committee and Vigilance Committee- from the JPCC were formed in September. Among them, the Vigilance Committee was formed with the aim to monitor work of the state government, especially the Centre sponsored schemes.

Jha said, “State government is not sincere in implementing the schemes. Their progress is very slow.”

“Work has not started on many Central schemes in the state. Centre’s allocated fund for many projects could not be used. Congress would send a detailed report about this to the party high command, “he added.

The committee reviewed condition of several schemes including MNERGA, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, Mid-day Meal Scheme, Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission and Indira Awaas Yojana.

Schemes like Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, NSP, Rastriya gramin swasthya mission, ICDS, ARWSP, APDPRP, Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana among others were also discussed.
