That the funds of the sanctioned projects of the road, bridges, drinking water, MG NERGA and other developmental schemes are being diverted and misured and their locations are being changed on political considerations causing mistrust among the common masses.

The roads from Chak Patti to Odhan, Kalikassi to Panglar via Mathani, CFC building at Kalka Mathani are few of the examples of such wrong actions of the administration.
