Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez's photos found on employees' job cards in MP. The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee (MGNREGA) job scheme has once again become the target of fraudsters, this time in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh. The pictures of Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez have reportedly been used on the 'fake' job cards to claim benefits. The fake job cards were also being used to take out money from accounts.
Photographs of these actors have been found on family job cards, uploaded online under MGNREGA beneficiaries, of at least 11 people in the remote Peeparkheda Naka village in Jhirnia panchayat, about 170km from Indore. Job cards of men, too, carry photos of Deepika and Jacqueline.
In one of the job cards with the name Monu Dubey, the picture of film actress Deepika Padukone was used. Monu Dubey said that after putting a photo of Deepika Padukone on the job card, thirty thousand rupees were withdrawn in his name, even though he did not go to work. This sequence continues every month.
