Union Minister of State for the PMO V Narayanasamy said he had asked the officials concerned to expedite the work being done under the Member of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS).
He told reporters that the delegation of parliamentarians, which inspected the sites of various schemes and reviewed the projects undertaken with funds from the MPLAD scheme, had expressed dissatisfaction at the slow pace of work executed by the administration.
A delegation of parliamentarians led by A K S Vijayan had inspected the sites of various schemes and held a review meeting on the projects under the MPLAD scheme in May this year.
Quoting details about the work and money allotted, Narayanasamy said he had asked the officials to utilise the funds earmarked under the scheme fully .
The Union Minister said that the amount for 2013-14 would not released unless the money allotted for the work was utilised and details submitted.
Narayansamy said the inefficiency and ineptness of the Rangasamy government was evident as it would meet the planning commission on June 27 with a Plan outlay of Rs 2,000 crore for 2013-2014,which is lower than previous years.
