Reiterating the State Government’s commitment to uplift the poorest of the poor while keeping the spirit of Antyodaya, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said, we must make people believe that before anyone, needy people have the first right on their Government.
Presiding over a meeting with the Chief Minister's Good Governance Associates (CMGGAs) in which detailed discussions were held on the State governments flagship schemes namely Parivar Pehchan Patra, e-Office, Antyodaya Saral, play-way school, women security, Saksham Haryana and Skill Development etc, Khattar directed officials to give priority to important schemes being formulated by the State Government for the year 2021.
While expressing his happiness, the Chief Minister said that for the last five years the CMGGA programme has been providing fruitful results on the ground. He also lauded the work done by CMGGAs during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Khattar said that from April 1, 2021, a unique scheme will be formulated under which selection of as many as One lakh poor families who are reading in Haryana and are having lowest family income would be done through Parivar Pehchan Patra Portal.
"Every possible effort will be made to increase the family income of such families. For this, the State Government will emphasize on the skill development of members of such families, providing employment opportunities to the unemployed members and also providing financial assistance. Besides this, employment avenues will also be explored to generate employment. If any family needs help to promote their ancestral business, then efforts will be made in that direction as well,” asserted the Chief Minister.
The CMGGAs should speed up the work of making Parivar Pehchan Patra cards in their respective districts so that the benefits of various welfare schemes being run by the Government reaches grassroot levels, directed Khattar.
“Along with development, the present State Government is swiftly moving towards ease of living so that the lives of the people of the State can become happy and prosperous," he said.
The Chief Minister said that the State Government is dedicated to working towards increasing the income of those farmers who have small agricultural land.
He said that Kisan Mitra Yojana will be launched to ensure financial management of the farmers', apart from increasing their income. Under this scheme one person will be appointed on a voluntary basis who will guide 100 more farmers about financial management.
On the occasion, Additional Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister and Director General, Information, Public Relations and Languages Department, Amit Agrawal said that the Chief Minister's Good Governance Associates Programme, which started five years ago, is an innovative and unique experiment and has brought meaningful results. The role of every CMGGA has become very important in bringing government schemes to the grassroots levels, he asserted.
"While on one hand, this programme strengthens the implementation of government schemes, on the other, CMGGAs also get a golden opportunity to get a lifetime experience of working in a government functionary", said Agrawal.
