CM urges to increase Centre’s share in light house project to reduce burden on beneficiaries

Ranchi: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on Friday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to increase the share of Centre in the light house project so that not much burden falls on the beneficiary.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday via online mode laid the foundation stone for light house projects in six cities including Ranchi. Chief Minister Hemant Soren participated in the function which was held at Football Grounds located at HEC Sector One Market.

The Chief Minister said that under the light house project in Ranchi 1008 homes will be constructed in which the centre and the state government both have to make their contributions but Jharkhand was a backward state which has a large population of workers and poor whose source of income is less.
