SRINAGAR: Minister of Rural Development, Abdul Haq, Tuesday said that around Rs 2000 crore fund allocation was available for various schemes in the rural development sector for the current fiscal. He said the department has also cleared liability of around Rs 400 crore inherited from the previous regime under MGNREGA.
When I assumed charge of the Department in March this year, it was a challenge as there were liabilities worth Rs 367 crore in MGNREGA alone, people refused to work as their previous dues were not cleared, Abdul Haq said while addressing a press conference here today.
