The Chief Minister said that the Central Government is not paying the outstanding amount of coal royalty of Rs 1 lakh 36 thousand crore to the State Government. If Jharkhand had received this amount, it would have given two and a half thousand rupees per month to old men and women, supplied water to farmers’ fields for irrigation in thousands of acres of land, given Rs 10 lakh each to youth for self-employment, and provided gas cylinders for Rs 500. But they are not paying this outstanding amount.

After the neglect of the Central Government, it was necessary for the State Government to ensure social security of the people here. Earlier 11 lakh ration cards were cancelled. But your government covered 20 lakh people with green ration cards. Now pulses will also be made available in the public distribution system shops. Twice a year, government clothes are also being supplied to the needy from the Public Distribution System shop.

Under the Marang Gomke Overseas Scholarship Scheme, 100% scholarship is being given to the students for higher education abroad. At present 50 children from tribal, Dalit, backward and minority classes are getting this scholarship. This is the first such scheme in the country.
