Manrega – Workers’ bidding is held here every day

listen to the news

Gonda. Although the MNREGA is running plans worth Rs 175 crore to employ village workers, but even after that, the village workers bidding is done at two intersections in the city. People haggle over and bring workers to work. But in any case, this salary exceeds the 213 rupees per day set by the MNREGA. That is why the holders of the work card consider it more beneficial to go to the labor market in the city than to do MNREGA work in the village. Where they receive daily salaries ranging from 350 to 450 rupees. Payment is also made immediately, while after working at MNREGA you have to travel to pay.
From 6 a.m., workers begin to concentrate at the city’s Peepal Crossing. As soon as a contractor or person comes for a salary, the workers run away with hope. Here are both bricklayers, that is, skilled workers and workers. After that the negotiation begins. People set salaries and go with workers. Here the workers who work as masons receive wages ranging from six hundred to seven hundred rupees a day. At the same time, employees receive salaries of 350 to 450 rupees. Similarly, workers have been meeting near Badgaon since the same morning. They bid there. Once wages are set, workers go to work. The MNREGA scheme has been in place in the district since 2008. Despite this, it is shocking to continue the tradition of bidding for workers even today.
In one year, a budget of 176 million rupees will be allocated to the district through the MNREGA. Apart from this, the Panchayati Raj department is also carrying out development works worth more than 200 million. If we look at the budget of PWD and the Department of Irrigation, schemes worth up to two billion are being executed. Even after that, district workers have to go to the job market. There are only 3.93 thousand registered workers in MNREGA in the district. The lack of employment for them is also shocking. The plans of other departments are also not effective. This time 51 lakh man days will have to be created in March 2023.
The job search for workers is not complete. About a thousand workers gather at the city’s Badgaon and Peepal intersections every day. They work all day and go home after working as workers. Apart from that, thousands of people in the villages also live by making rickshaws, fruits, vegetables and so on. in the city. There is no agreement to offer them jobs in Panchayats. Most of the workers are from 27 villages adjacent to the city, where work is severely affected by the MNREGA. Neither schemes such as villages have been included in the city or are being properly managed here. In such a situation, the problem of employment is more in front of the people of these villages.
CDO Gaurav Kumar says employment-oriented programs will be seriously implemented in gram panchayats. Department plans are now being reviewed, improvements will be seen soon.
