Addressing people during a pre-budget meeting at training centre of Rural Development Agency, Chatra, he said that a significant change is visible in Jharkhand since past 3 years and this is possible because of stable government. The government has the intention to ensure public participation in implementation of schemes, he added.

“Jharkhand is a state of villages and for the development of State it is necessary to make plans with the participation of villagers. There are various discrepancies in the prosperous State. Poverty, illiteracy, ignorance, witch-craft are obstructive in the path of development. Everyone should go to their village and motivate people to bring change only then villages will become prosperous and self-supportive,” Das said.

“Budget is not just an account of income expenditure but fixes the direction of development. Government wants to make budget according to the thinking and aspirations of the people. For the purpose of increasing public participation government is holding pre-budget seminar in block level and taking feedback from people. We will make Jharkhand one of the world's developed states by developing homes, lanes and villages. There is no shortage of mineral resources in the State. In view of this, the Government is removing the unemployment of the people by developing agriculture, industries, cooperative, tourism sectors etc,” he added.

The CM said that construction of roads, ponds, wells, Dova, Drain, Lavatory and schools will be done through village development committee. Women will play important role in this. He called upon people of the State to visit villages and make everyone aware to make prosperous Jharkhand.
