Lucknow, Sep 16: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has announced the launch of a unique ‘Uttar Pradesh Matra Bhumi Yojana’ which will make the common man a direct participant in the development work of the state.

The scheme aims to strengthen the participatory rural economy and infrastructure.

According to the government spokesman, “Under this, every person will get a chance to directly participate in various works of infrastructure development in the villages. The government will bear 50 per cent of the total cost of the project, while the remaining 50 per cent will be contributed by the interested people. In return the project can be named after the relatives of the collaborators as per their wish.”

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked the Department of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj to submit an action plan for the formal launch of this innovative scheme.

He said that continuous work is being done by the central and state governments for the overall development of the villages.

The Uttar Pradesh Mathrubhumi Yojana can be a good attempt in the establishments of health centres, Anganwadi, library, stadium, gymnasium, open gym, cattle breed improvement centre, fire service station, among others, in villages.

Whether for setting up CCTVs for smart villages, development of funeral sites, installation of solar lights, there can be public participation in every work.

Through this new scheme, the person concerned will be able to take full credit of the project by bearing half of the total cost.

The chief minister wants panchayats to be self-reliant. With sufficient available resources, efforts should be made for self-reliance by adopting innovations.

He has also stressed on rural development. “Countries with developed infrastructure are also economically prosperous. In a state like Uttar Pradesh, about 80 per cent of the population lives in rural background. To strengthen the rural economy, good roads and better connectivity are essential which is being done continuously through PMGSY,” he said.

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.
