Chief Minister Raghubar Das on Saturday said that Santhal Pargana, which has remained ignored from development for decades, will only see development in the coming days. The CM said that the development of Santhal is Government’s priority. “It is our duty to provide people with basic amenities.
While discharging these duties, houses were constructed, electricity, roads were provided. Work of women empowerment took place. The drinking water scheme worth Rs 217 crore will be completed in Littipara. With the completion of the scheme, a large population will have pure drinking water available at their houses. The Government is committed to provide water through pipeline to all households in the State by 2022,” he added.
“For the poor, whose houses are not built under PM Awas Yojana, allocate Rs 10 crore out of the amount received for the aspirational district to the Deputy Commissioner for construction of houses. The Government has allocated 250 additional houses, under which also provide housing to the needy. Complete the process of construction of missing toilets by conducting a survey in the entire district with members of Sakhi Mandal. The poor should get their rights. The present Government does not want to keep any distance between the government and the people. We have to bridge this gap of years,” said the CM at Jan Chaupal organised in Bhogandih of Sahebganj.
The CM said that only seven thousand farmers of Barhet have registered under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana and Mukhyamantri Krishi Aashirwad Yojana. “There was a misleading propaganda among the farmers of Barhet that the Government will take their land by paying money, whereas, in 5 years, the Government did not take away anyone’s land. Such people do not want your development. Take advantage of the scheme. 26 lakh farmers like you have received the first installment by taking advantage of the scheme. On October 23, farmers will also get another instalment,” said he.
Das said that the objective of Jan Chaupal is to inform and make aware of the schemes to the common masses.
“We have to jointly build a corruption-free Jharkhand. If government servants commit corruption, they will be dismissed. Local girls will get employment in the nursing college starting here. In this way, nursing colleges are to be opened in 11 districts where training is to be provided to the girls. There are also plans to open a skill development center in all the blocks of Santhal Pargana,” he added.
Meanwhile, speaking at the UJJWALA Didis conference in Dumka the CM said that the government has vowed to empower women so that they live with dignity. “The aim of Ujjwala Didi Conference is to make women power the power of society and the power of the State. Due to our mothers and sisters, we still get to see family arrangement and it is discussed abroad. Women carry on the task of taking the family together. Women have amazing powers. She also hides her needs. But the government has understood the pain of women and has done many things to empower them financially,” he said.
