BJP Asks Awas Probe


Alleging gross violation of the eligibility criteria for allotment of houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) in Odisha, a group of Saffron Lawmakers of the State have urged Union Rural Development Minister Narendra Singh Tomar to order investigation into the matter by sending a Central Team to the State.

“We, the Members of Parliament and Members of Legislative Assembly of Odisha, request your personal intervention, once again, in launching a thorough investigation by an agency of Government of India to assess the nature of allegations to ascertain the extent of deviation from the central guidelines in the preparation lists of beneficiaries by the Government of Odisha and ensure justice in the matter,” they said in a letter to Union Minister Mr.Tomar.

They have submitted a block-wise list of complaints received from the beneficiaries of PM Awas Yojana in the districts of Puri, Cuttack, Khordha, Keonjhar and Jajpur to prove their point.

Highlighting the gross discrepancies in assessment of eligibility of beneficiaries, blatant favouritism and nepotism in allotment of houses and utilisation of funds for houses under PMAY as well as in the housing assistance granted by the Government of India for rehabilitation of people affected by cyclone Fani, the BJP MPs and MLAs brought to the notice of Minister Tomar the glaring inconsistencies being reported against the Government of Odisha in the implementation of PMAY scheme, and specifically the foul play in distribution of housing funds.

Media reports across the State have highlighted that that no less than 10 lakh or 85 percent out of the 12.85 lakh PMAY beneficiaries in Odisha are ineligible for the scheme, which means a vast majority of the funds have been misutilized for personal gains while depriving the true beneficiaries of the scheme, they mentioned in the letter, while demanding a thorough investigation to ascertain the extent of deviation from the Central guidelines in the preparation list of beneficiaries by the Odisha Government.
