Dehradun, July 26
BJP activists from Dharampur yesterday protested in front of the District Magistrate office against alleged irregularities in relief distribution in their area.

Mahesh Pandey, general secretary of the BJP, said, “Many cases of irregularities pertaining to the distribution of relief amount have come to light in the Dharampur constituency where several houses were damaged due to heavy rains.”
He said Morowala Clementtown was the worst affected area in the district where two families, whose houses were largely damaged, were given Rs 1,300 and Rs 2,700, respectively, as relief while the state government had announced a compensation of Rs 25,000 for every damaged house.
Pandey said a resident of Machli Talab, whose house and belongings were destroyed due to heavy rains, was given Rs 1,300 as relief while his two brothers were given Rs 2,700 and Rs 5,300, respectively, as relief for almost similar damage to their houses.
He pointed towards a family of four members on Turner Road and said it was given relief money twice for the same house while there were many families living near river which were not given any assistance even though their houses were damaged due to heavy rains.
He said relief cheques were distributed among 100 families in ward 46 of Majra where no river or nullah flows and no water-logging took place there. At the same time, owners of more than 100 houses in Brahmpuri, which were damaged due to an overflowing river in the vicinity, were still awaiting relief. Pandey demanded a probe into these irregularities and action against the guilty persons. He said the relief money given to fake persons should be recovered.
