Agartala: In dark and cold chilling nights, they don’t have to spend nights in open streets. The thundering monsoon will not hit them as hard as before. The immature hands need not be folded for food like earlier. 

They are the underprivileged, impoverished children of Agartala city roads who are now bereft of many things but a roof to spend night.  Tripura government’s social welfare and social education department on Thursday launched an open shelter for those fate-stricken children who did not even have a space to spend the night. 

Union Minister of state social justice and Empowerment Pratima Bhoumik inaugurated the newly launched project at Tripura Women’s Commission building. 

Appreciating the efforts of Tripura Social Education and Social Welfare department, she said, “This is a unique step to extend the helping towards many homeless children. In the streets of Agartala, we heart-wrenching scenes of children spending nights under the open sky. In some cases, the parents push the children in a life full of darkness. This open shelter will give them a space where they can get food, education and other basic amenities”. She said, separate arrangements of accommodations are made for girls and boys under the supervision of the wardens.

“Ensuring proper social security of girl children is a must. And, this is why now separate arrangements are made and male and female wardens are engaged”, she added. 

Social Welfare and Social Education Minister Santana Chakma and other officials of the department also attended the function held at Tripura Women Commission office. As of now, eight children are staying in the shelter house.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
