  1. A writ in the nature of mandamus is issued directing the Central Bureau of Investigation to investigate the abuse and misappropriation of fund as well as the abuse of power under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Guarantee Scheme with regard to seven districts of State of U.P, namely Balrampur, Gonda, Mahoba, Sonbhadra, Sant Kabir Nagar, Mirzapur and Kushinagar in the years 2007 to 2010 with appropriate action and prosecution in accordance with law.

  2. No doubt this judgment is the landmark judgment which will change the scenario of the state. This can be taken as the conquest of public spirited individual cum whistle blowers. This victory is the result of endurance of people of state. This enquiry will end the bad tradition that public representative in connivance with the corrupt bureaucrats siphon the public fund meant to poor people of state.

  3. Honest and public spirited judges can also play constructive role in the betterment of society. No doubt this judgment will prove to be landmark judgment in the history of India as concerned with the right of poor and downtrodden. The effect of this judgment will be seen in few days . No one must be spared irrespective of status and position.

  4. मनरेगा घोटाले की जांच सीबीआई से कराने के हाईकोर्ट के फैसले की प्रति ग्राम्य विकास विभाग को मिल गई है।

    लग रहा है कि हाईकोर्ट के इस फैसले और जांच पर टिप्पणी ने यूपी सरकार को डरा दिया है।

    विभाग इस पर न्याय विभाग की राय लेने के बाद अगला कदम उठाएगा। इस बीच संकेत ‌मिल रहे हैं कि सरकार फैसले के खिलाफ सुप्रीम कोर्ट जा सकती है।

    हाईकोर्ट ने सीबीआई को 2007-2010 के बीच हुए मनरेगा घोटाले की जांच करने का आदेश दिया है। प्रदेश के सात जिलों में जहां धांधली व शक्ति के दुरुपयोग की जांच की जानी है, वहीं बाकी जिलों में इसके तहत मिली रकम के दुरुपयोग व धांधली की जांच की जानी है।

    हाईकोर्ट के फैसले की प्रति मिलने की पुष्टि करते हुए प्रमुख सचिव ग्राम्य विकास अरुण सिंघल ने बताया कि फैसले पर न्याय विभाग की राय ली जाएगी और उसके अनुरूप ही कदम उठाए जाएंगे।

    क्या हाईकोर्ट के फैसले को सुप्रीम कोर्ट में चुनौती देने की योजना है? सिंघल ने कहा कि राय आने के पहले कुछ भी कहना उचित नहीं है। हालांकि सूत्रों का कहना है कि उच्च स्तर पर इस संबंध में विचार-विमर्श शुरू हो गया है।

    वजह, मनरेगा में धांधली से जुड़ा एक मामला सर्वोच्च न्यायालय में विचाराधीन है। सरकार सुप्रीम कोर्ट से अपने समक्ष लंबित मामले में फैसला आने तक हाईकोर्ट के निर्णय पर रोक लगाने की अपील कर सकती है।

    बताते चलें कि मायावती सरकार के कार्यकाल में मनरेगा में हुई धांधली की जांच के लिए केंद्रीय ग्रामीण विकास मंत्री जयराम रमेश ने मौजूदा सीएम अखिलेश यादव से मिलकर और कई बार पत्र लिखकर सीबीआई जांच की सिफारिश करने का आग्रह किया था।

    हालांकि सीएम हर बार सीबीआई जांच की आवश्यकता से इन्कार करते रहे। ऐसे में सरकार सीबीआई जांच को जितना हो सके, टालने के लिए सुप्रीम कोर्ट में अपील करे तो अचरज नहीं होना चाहिए।

  5. Here most are indulged in corruption and no one wants to redress the grievances of common people .High court ordered inquiry in MGNREGA by C.B.I. but C.B.I. is not initiated its job but wrongdoers are busy in concealing its wrongs. O God save us from the anarchists. Whether we can get justice in this anarchy. Whether the large scale bungling of fund in MGNREGA will be ever searched by premier investigating agency by adopting such lackadaisical approach.Whether Akhilesh Yadav think that by shielding corrupt public functionaries , he will win the Loksabha election. .

  6. When I had took glance in the early morning of leading daily Amar Ujala .then according to news few B.D.Os were busy in checking the records of 2007 to 2010 in order to conceal the wrongs committed by them when they were posted at the block. Now it is duty of government ,not to allow such B.D.Os to subvert the evidence which may be substantial evidence against them for premier investigating agency. Whether those who siphoned the share of poor and downtrodden will be sent behind the bar or not. Whether the government can overlook the order of High court. Why C.B.I. is showing leniency in regard to this order.
