BJP MP advocates separate funds for villages adopted by MPs
Senior BJP leader and Lok Sabha member from Sagar Laxminaryan Yadav has advocated a separate fund for development of villages adopted by MPs.
Responding to media persons’ questions the MP said in Sagar on Saturday he had adopted Baroda village as per wishes of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and he had ensured several works for development of the village.
The MP was talking to media persons to share with them achievements of Narendra Modi government on its completion of four years.
“I spent money on development of the village from MP Local Area Development fund but I feel there should be separate allocation of funds for development of such villages. I raised this demand on the party forum too. When we spend a major amount of MPLAD fund just for a village other villages object to it.
The MP said he faced administrative red-tapism in sanctioning of development work.
The MP said he didn’t see generation of significant job avenues after setting up of big industries. For instance, he said, the refinery at Bina in Sagar was set up with investment of about Rs 20000 crore. About 3000-4000 acre of agriculture land was acquired for the same but it could provide jobs to only 1400-1500 people.
