BRS organized the protests across Telangana on Friday against the Centre’s allegations on diversion of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) funds in the state.  The protest was organized in all district headquarters, announced BRS working president and state Industries and Commerce Minister KTR on Thursday. 

On the otherside, Bharatiya Janata Party BJP leader Bandi Sanjay Kumar criticized the state wide protests by BRS leaders demanding that MGNREGA funds be allowed to be used for the  employment generation in  the agriculture and other sectors, saying that state government, after repeatedly neglecting farm sector, was now shedding the crocodile tears.

BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar said BRS leaders and ministers did not have basic awareness of the MGNREGA rules as the scheme does not include the  agriculture and related activities. Bandi Sanjay Kumar said , “Under this employment guarantee scheme, Rs 152 cr  released to Telangana by Centre were diverted. This has been brought to the notice of Telangana government ,  it was asked to return the funds.
