Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that the State Government has asked the Central Government to include the repair and construction of school buildings under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA).

After launching the ‘NREGA Habba’ here on Monday March 14, CM Bommai urged for extending the scope of the NREGA programme. “In the budget, I have allocated Rs. 50 Crore to take up construction of 1,000 anganwadis,” he said.

“We have also requested that the Centre include school building repair and construction in the programme. If the Centre approves, more work will be available in rural areas, and the government will be able to take up classroom repair and construction,” he added.

He said that the state was ahead in terms of implementing the programme when compared to other states. “NREGA is a weapon that will be crucial in eradicating poverty. It contributes to the economy’s growth. As a result, ‘NREGA Habba’ is a state festival that should be celebrated in every village to encourage panchayats to work harder,” he remarked.

The CM emphasised the necessity of decentralisation, saying that if power is not decentralised, the Administration will freeze. “Power decentralisation should be like honey. It should reach the beneficiary directly after it is allowed to flow from Vidhana Soudha. Political decentralisation has happened, and administrative decentralisation has also been a reality to some extent, but we need financial autonomy, which is essential for development,” he expressed.
