‘Extend working days under MGNREGA’
Binoy Viswam asks Modi to make it a minimum of 200 days
CPI Rajya Sabha MP Binoy Viswam in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged to extend the quota of working days under the MGNREGA scheme to a minimum of 200 days and additionally, extend the limitations of the scheme to per adult individual rather than per household.
“To ensure survival and dignity to all its citizens is the first and foremost responsibility of any ruling government under the social contract with its citizens,” Mr. Viswam said. The Hindu reported on Tuesday that 1.4 lakh poor rural households have already completed their 100 days quota of work and seven lakh are on the brink of completing more than 80 days and over 23 lakh households are nearing the 60-day mark.
