NREGA dues not released

The Rural Workers Association (RWA) and the district administration here are on a collision course over the non-payment of wages to workers, unemployment allowance to those eligible and non-availability of work for 1,500 job card holders under the NREGA in Khalwahan, Khani, Thata and Bung panchayats in the district.

RWA convener Lawan Thakur and president Sant Ram met the district NREGA coordinator here today.

They said they had brought these issues to the notice of the administration several times, but no action had been initiated to give relief to the rural workers so far.
