Govt to ensure poor get benefit of schemes: Raje

Chief minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday said that the government would make foolproof  arrangements to make sure all the benefits of the schemes for the poor reached the poor and not others.


She was addressing a public meet after laying the foundation stone of a mega housing scheme at Bedwas in Udaipur. She also unveiled a statue of Swami Vivekanand and inaugurated a park on Fatehsagar Lake Raje said, “In the name of poor, the benefit of schemes are availed by other people. Though the poor get a house allotted in housing schemes but despite that they live in huts.”

Hitting out at the Congress, she said after Independence in 66 years only one party governed the nation but despite that there is no development in the state. Our previous government removed the tag of BIMARU from the state and brought in development. But in the last five years, the state went into the same position. “We will work to bring the state back on the development tracks but it will take time. We don’t have a magic wand to remove the 66-year-old disease in a day,” she added.

Regarding the schemes launched during the Congress government in the state, she once again clarified that people were being misguided that the BJP government was going to stop their schemes. “The government will not stop any scheme which is beneficial for the people. But certainly irregularities in the schemes will be stopped--as people who should get benefit are not receiving it and the ones not entitled are getting it,” she said.

About the ‘government-at-your-door’ programme in Bharatpur, she said the initiative proved successful and it would be continued in other divisions.
