MCG (Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon) has turned down the offer of the state government funds of Rs.35 crores to construct community centers in the city. MCG might be the only municipality in the country to turn down such a offer because the they have enough funds for the development of Gurgaon. The money was offered by the state government so that MCG can come up with new community parks and renovate the older ones.
It comes as a surprise from the authority's end as the city's reckless infrastructure can be effortlessly observed everywhere. Bhupinder Singh Hooda, the Chief Minister of Gurgaon
had announced special funding for all the municipal bodies in November, which also included MCG. However, the MCG has refused to accept the funding from the respective scheme.
However, the mayor of MCG, Vimal Yadav, found this absurd and said, “We will run out of money once we are allotted big projects even if we have sufficient funds at present. MCG should have accepted the state funds in order to build community parks in the city. I will personally write to the urban local bodies regarding the same.”
“MCG have not accepted the funds because the authority lacks governance and transparency in the system. If one accepts the funds thereupon they have to abide by certain rules and any project taken up has to meet the deadlines with few defined standards. I think the officials declined the offer as they were not sure about the completing the project on time”, said a senior official, reported The Times of India.
