Modi govt dedicated to those left out of mainstream by previous regimes: Jitendra Singh
Jammu: Union minister Jitendra Singh Sunday said the Modi government is dedicated to those who were left out of the mainstream by previous regimes.
The Union Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office said the central government has repealed over 1,600 obsolete and outdated laws which were a great hindrance to the development of the country.
Addressing ‘Divyang Parivar Maha-Samelan’, organised at the initiative of a social organisation SAKSHAM in Kathua district, Singh said decisive steps were taken by Modi for the welfare of ‘Divyangs’.
“Be it the fee remission for Divyangs in Civil Services Examination, two choices of home cadre for Divyangs qualifying civil services examination, increase in reservation for Divyangs from three percent to four percent and increase in the Divyang pension, every other step has been taken by this government for the welfare of Divyangs,” he said.
He said 15,000 posts meant for Divyangs which were lying vacant were filled under a special drive by the government.
