Raising the issue during the Question Hour of providing materials and safety equipment to registered workers, BJP legislator Brijmohan Agrawal asked urban development minister Shivkumar Dehariya about the number of applications fulfilled and the expenditure it involved.

Agrawal alleged that the government has discontinued the Mini Mata scheme which was an integrated plant to benefit labourers but, in stead of providing the money and facilities that the workers deserve and are entitled to, they were being fooled and not being given anything. He saida that even during the Covid times when everyone was facing crisis, the workers were not given assistance.

Replying to the question Dehariya said that there was a sum of Rs 561 crore that will be spent for workers’ welfare and due to the pandemic, the distribution of materials was only done on individual’s demand basis.

The opposition expressed dissatisfaction with the reply from the minister and alleged wrong intentions of corruption for not using the money for the work it is meant for. There was a war of words from both sides and the opposition raising slogans against corruption and irresponsibility towards workers, staged a walk out.

Another issue that created an uproar in the House was when leader of opposition Dharamlal Kaushik questioned Dehariya about status of providing residences under PMAY in Jagdalpur and the actions taken against the allegations of irregularities in distribution of houses.

He pointed out that BJP had massively protested in Jagdalpur against a Congress corporator who was charging Rs 25000 for allotment of each house to the homeless beneficiaries and later, only upon recommendation of Governor, the corporator was arrested.
