Ranchi: Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Tuesday said that the government is making continuous efforts to promote industries in the state. “ In the industrial policy, many facilities are being provided by the government to the industrialists. There were once many rice mills in areas like Chakulia, Baharagora and Ghatshila, but today the situation is not good.
Our government has made many decisions to promote rice mills. Permission has been given to open more than a dozen rice mills and soon all of them will become operational” said the Chief Minister. He said that the government is giving 40 percent subsidy to those opening rice mills.
The Chief Minister asked the youth to come forward to set up rice mills and other industries. The government will make special arrangements for you. He said that this would boost employment generation and also strengthen the economy of the state.
He said “ Be it the security of the country or saving water, forests, land and environment. Be it protest against injustice and exploitation or fight for our dignity and rights. The tribal people of Jharkhand have never bowed down and never stopped. We have been struggling on every front and will continue to do so”
“ History is witness to the fact that many heroes here have sacrificed their lives for the sake of society and country. We all are proud of these immortal martyrs. Chief Minister Shri Hemant Soren was addressing the tribute meeting-cum-asset distribution ceremony organized in the memory of martyrs at Kurukocha in Chakulia, East Singhbhum today” said the Chief Minister.
The Chief Minister said that the government has taken many decisive steps to promote sports and sportspersons. For the first time, a sports policy has been made in the state. Under this policy, those who win medals in national and international level competitions are being directly appointed in government jobs.
Sports grounds are being developed under the Shaheed Poto Ho scheme. Along with distributing sports material among the players, financial help is also being provided through Sido Kanhu Club. Our effort is that the youth should progress through sports and bring glory to their families, state and country.
Chief Minister said that Jharkhand is the land of heroes. Many brave martyrs like Lord Birsa Munda, Sido-Kanhu, Tilka Manjhi and Nilambar Pitambar laid down their lives while leading the struggle against the British and exploitation and injustice. Even today, there are many brave martyrs who are unnamed, the government is making continuous efforts to identify them and honor them. It is our resolve to give full respect to the martyrs and their families.
