Govt committed to 100% saturation of schemes, reaching out to the unreached: LG
Says integrated action and popular involvement could turn villages into viable economic centres and create opportunities for youth, women, farmers and vulnerable sections
Jammu: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha attended ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’ at Panchayat Dhok Waziran, Nagrota, today and reiterated government’s commitment to reach out to the “unreached” with welfare schemes, an official press release informed.
It said the LG congratulated the PRI representatives and people for their enthusiastic participation. He urged them to reach out to the maximum number of families, generate awareness about Government schemes and encourage enrolment of potential beneficiaries.
He emphasised the need to replicate the best practices of Panchayat Dhok Waziran to develop model villages in a holistic way for better livelihood options, improved quality of life and action-oriented ‘Jan-Bhagidari’ for a happy, prosperous and peaceful Panchayat.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is committed towards 100 percent saturation of government schemes and reaching out to the unreached. It provides a significant opportunity to rural and urban areas to ensure the common man and vulnerable section is empowered,” the LG said.
He urged the people to actively participate in ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’, avail the on-spot services being provided and disseminate the information about schemes.
Individual success stories must reach out to every nook and corner of UT to highlight the transformation brought about by the government’s flagship schemes in their lives, he said.
“Through integrated action and involvement of every individual we can turn the villages into viable, sustainable economic centres and create opportunities for youth, women, farmers and vulnerable sections to accomplish the vision of Viksit Bharat,” the LG said.
The LG highlighted the efforts of the J&K government to ensure benefits of welfare measures reach the poor and weaker sections of society.
“UT administration is providing five Marla land to poor landless beneficiaries under PMAY (G). This will raise the living standards of poor, vulnerable landless families, remove the existing societal imbalances and lead to their economic and social prosperity,” he said.
Raman Wazir, Sarpanch Panchayat Dhok Waziran and beneficiaries from the Panchayat also shared their experiences and expressed gratitude to the administration for extension of benefits under various government schemes.
The LG visited the stalls put up by different departments, witnessed the demonstration of drones, and handed over the certificates of registration to the members of newly created Farmer Producers Organizations.
‘Hamara Sankalp Viksit Bharat’ pledge was also administered on the occasion.
Bharat Bhushan, Chairman District Development Council Jammu; Ramesh Kumar, Divisional Commissioner Jammu; Dr. Piyush Singla, Secretary Revenue; Sachin Kumar Vaishya, Deputy Commissioner Jammu; Shakti Pathak, DIG Jammu-Samba-Kathua Range, senior officers, PRI members and people in large number were present.
