Following several allegations of huge irregularities in the selection of beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), people in large number gathered in front of the Singimari GP office under Bajali sub-division on Tuesday.

The irate mob even charged GP secretary Bhabesh Nath and the Panchayat president Anjana Barman for the alleged irregularities.

They even locked the office since Monday and demanded the arrival of the BDO at the office.

Before the situation worsened, the police arrived on the spot and brought the situation under control.

The locals have alleged that proper beneficiaries have been deprived of the scheme.

Meanwhile, based on the FIR lodged by the President of Dumuria GP for the untoward incident that happened on Monday, police arrested one person.

On Monday, the secretary and the president of Dumuria GP were tortured by the irate public alleging irregularities in the selection of beneficiaries.

The people also misbehaved with the duo and even tore their dress apart.

Meanwhile, people in large numbers went to Pathsala on Tuesday and submitted a petition alleging huge irregularities in the Panchayat.
