West Bengal BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that the funds allotted by the Centre are being mismanaged by the Trinamool Congress-led government in the state. This comes a day after West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met PM Modi in Delhi and submitted a letter seeking urgent release of funds due to the state for implementation of schemes including MGNREGA.

In a letter to PM Modi, Suvendu Adhikari wrote, “I would like to apprise you regarding the misappropriation of Central Grants and funds in West Bengal provided by the Central Government for the implementation of various Centrally sponsored schemes; especially MGNREGA, PMAY (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana) & PMGSY (Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana).”

Siphoning & diverting funds allocated by the Union Ministry of Rural Development for each & every Central Govt scheme, has been the trademark of WB Govt.
I have written to Hon’ble PM Shri @narendramodi Ji, drawing his attention towards the massive financial scam unfolding in WB:

Suvendu Adhikari alleged that a number of incidents of malpractices are being unearthed across West Bengal and that it was a very well known fact that payments for works, supposed to be executed under the MGNREGA, were being made without actually executing such jobs.

He also wrote to PM Modi alleging that multiple central government schemes are being used in Bengal under the headers of state government:

-Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana as Bangla Awas Yojana
-Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana as Bangla Gram Sadak Yojana
-Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana as Khadyasathi
-Pradhan Mantri Jal Yojana Mission as Jal Swapna
-Swach Bharat Abhiyan as Nirmal Bangla
-Watershed Development Program as Jal Dharo Jal Bharo
-National Rural Livelihood Mission as Anandadhara
