MSM will improve Standard of Living – Jharkhand Governor

Ranchi/ Deoghar: Jharkhand Governor C.P. Radhakrishnan addressed villagers at Thadhiyara Panchayat Bhawan of Mohanpur block under Deoghar district. He said the promotion of Micro Scale and Medium Enterprises (MSME) in each district will provide new employment opportunities to the people, and their standard of living will improve. He added to reduce the problems of mothers and sisters, free cooking gas connections have been given by the government under the Ujjwala Yojana.

Drinking water is being supplied under the Nal-Jal Yojana started by Prime Minister. Due to the availability of gas and the arrangement of water, cooking by mothers and sisters is becoming easier. Governor Radhakrishnan said we should use bags instead of plastic, due to plastic all water sources are especially affected. He said Sikkim is the only state in India where completely organic farming is done. Even in our Jharkhand state, chemical fertilizers are not used in traditional farming. Therefore, Jharkhand can also move towards completely organic farming. 

He said earlier organic farming was done in India, but gradually following Western civilization, we started using more and more chemical fertilizers and pesticides instead of traditional farming, due to which our farm started getting affected. Now we are again moving towards organic farming. During the conversation, a villager said 150 houses have been constructed here under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

The Governor said it is the aim of the Prime Minister that no person should remain homeless in the whole of India, those whose houses have not been built, their houses will be built. Another villager said even after the construction of the toilet, it is not used by people. It is known that there is no availability of water in many toilets. The Governor asked the Deputy Commissioner to solve the problem of water through boring under alternative arrangements before the completion of the Nal-Jal Yojana.

Along with this, public awareness programs were also run through self-help groups and students. Sanju Tudu, a member of Suraj Aajeevika Sakhi Mandal, said in the public dialogue program that she is running a ration and cosmetic shop by taking a loan, which earns about Rs 8,000. She is also repaying the loan. The Governor said women have been empowered through self-help groups and their standard of living has increased.

District Council President Kiran Kumari and member Geeta Mandal requested the Governor to open a degree college here because the children have to go to Deoghar College. No enrollment of children is done and girls drop out from further studies. 

The Governor said definitely a meaningful initiative will be taken in this direction, but till then the Deputy Commissioner will arrange a bus for Deoghar.
