Another scam has taken place in Madhya Pradesh in connection with the National Employment Guarantee Scheme that the sarpanch, secretary and employment assistant of Jhirnya district Piparkheda Naka Panchayat replaced the photograph of workers with that of actress Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez on the job card.
Fake job cards were used to withdraw money from the accounts. Monu Dubey used the photo of Deepika Padukone on the job card. He did not go to work but drew Rs 30,000 using a fake job card in his name.
Another beneficiary, Sonu did the same thing with Jacqueline picture. More than 10 such cards have been used where the pictures were replaced by that of actresses and lakhs have been withdrawn using such job cards.
The incident came to light after the enrolled beneficiaries searched online after they didn't get their money and found their fake job cards. Zilla Panchayat CEO Gaurav Benal has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
