Dreze, Roy boycott NREGS function

Noted NREGS activists Jean Dreze and Aruna Roy on Tuesday boycotted the fourth anniversary celebration of the job scheme, attended by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, alleging that Rural Development Minister C P Joshi’s move to allow construction of panchayat buildings under the name of Rajiv Gandhi would turn into a “dangerous” entry point for “corrupt contractors”.
