Senapati, March 07 2013:
Seeking the attention of the State Government, Naga People's Organization (NPO) has asserted that not many people have been benefited from the RGGVY scheme in Senapati District as claimed by the State Electricity Department.
NPO alleged that works have not been implemented in accordance to the laid down rules of the said scheme and demanded the State Government to constitute a Committee to investigate into the matter immediately.
Contrary to the purpose of RGGVY scheme, the claim of electrification of virgin villages along with issuing energy meters and transformers remains only 'mere paper work' and there has been no actual implementation of the said project in Senepati district.
While only some selected villages have been brought under the scheme, there is report of rampant selling of electrical transformer and poles to many villages.
Moreover, electrical items like Transformers and Electric pole are being sold by the concerned Department on high price to anyone who wanted their houses to be electrified, NPO added.
