Tanks of corruption in CG: PHE officers are kind to the contractors! Misappropriation of several lakhs, who got how much commission?

Durg. For the first time after the election of the new president in Durg District Panchayat, the general meeting was organized. In this general meeting, proposals related to Education, Agriculture and PHE Department were brought. The members of the District Panchayat reviewed the works proposed in these departments. The issue of the PHE department remained hot in the general assembly.

In fact, in the year 2022-23, for the cleaning of 31 water tanks in rural areas, installation and maintenance of motor machines, an amount of about one crore rupees was approved by the District Mineral Trust to PHE. In which work was to be done in each of the tanks with an amount of three lakhs. But the officials of the department only completed the formalities of maintenance of tanks by giving work to their favorite contractors. In this case, when the District Panchayat members lodged an objection and demanded the Collector to investigate the entire work. After which Collector Pushpendra Meena formed an inquiry committee 6 months ago. In which two officers of Public Works Department and one officer of PHE Department were given the responsibility of handing over the investigation report. But even these officers, while delaying the investigation, have not started the investigation till now, due to which the investigation reports were not presented before the collector.

On Monday, when this matter echoed again in the general meeting of the Zilla Panchayat, then the ears of the officers stood up. Now the members have given instructions to start its investigation again. District panchayat president Pushpa Yadav and all district panchayat members were present in the meeting. District Panchayat member Pushpa Yadav said that a proposal had been prepared and sent for cleaning and maintenance of water tanks in rural areas. But the work was not visible on the ground, now we have sought information about it.
