Vidisha (Madhya Pradesh): Organizing a lunch for the Governor of Madhya Pradesh, Mangubhai C Patel, transformed the misery of a villager in Vidisha district.
Governor Patel had lunch with the villager Buddhram on August 24, the latter enjoying a benefit from Prime Minister Awas Yojana.
Shortly after the governor’s office announced the governor’s visit to Ghatkhedi village, the Vidisha district administration and the local Panchayat scheduled his lunch.
For this purpose, they chose the house of Buddharam. Since the Buddharam house, which he made use of under Prime Minister Awas Yojana, was under construction, officials from the district administration and the village of Panchayat Sarpanch Badan Singh Rajput offered their assistance to complete the construction. They also asked him to have the front of the house cleaned.
According to Buddhram, he spent over $ 15,000 to repair new windows, a gate, paint the house and clean the front of the house.
“Sarpanch and some officials asked me to have a new door fixed in the house. The new door worth over Rs 7,000 has been repaired. Sarpanch had promised to cover the cost of the gate, ”Buddhram said.
He added that a new ceiling fan had been installed in the house. “They gave me a television, a gas connection and other personal effects to host the governor’s lunch,” he added.
He said the governor handed him the house by cutting a ribbon and also had lunch with him.
The next day, that is, August 25, a team from the village of Panchayat came and took away the ceiling fan and some other personal effects.
Now, as Buddharam claims, Sarpanch asks him to foot the bill for the gate. “I asked him that I could not afford such an expensive door, the government gave me a budget limited to Rs 1.20 lakh for the construction of the house as part of the project,” he said. declared.
Buddharam and his family members still live in his old mud house, as the construction of the house, which he took advantage of under Prime Minister Awas Yojana, is not yet complete.
The administration, however, called Buddharam’s claims without merit. General Manager (CEO) Jila Panchayat Dr Yogesh said he sent a team to the village to verify Buddharam’s complaint.
“No one asks him for money. My team assured him that he would not have to pay any bills for the construction work on his house, ”he said.
