New Delhi : Union Home Affairs and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah launched Mukhyamantri Ghasiyari Kalyan Yojana and computerization of cooperative societies at Dehradun, Uttarakhand, on October 30, 2021. Many dignitaries including Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Pushkar Singh Dhami and Union Minister Ajay Bhatt were present on the occasion.

Shah, on this occasion, said that the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee created the state and many youth were martyred while making the demand for creation of Uttarakhand. Our party was also in support of demand of the youth of Uttarakhand at that time. Shah,  during his last visit to the state, had said that Atal Bihari Vajpayee had created Uttarakhand and PM Narendra Modi will develop it, and there will be all round development of the state.

The Union Home Minister said that today three programmes have been started. First, work of computerisation of all the PACS (Primary Agricultural Credit Society) of Uttarakhand has been completed today. With computerisation, PACS members do not have to deal with any scams. Computerization helps in direct linkage of PACS with district banks, district banks with state cooperative banks,and state cooperative banks with NABARD and all schemes of farmers reach farmers directly through PACS.

Shah said very few states in the country have been able to accomplish this task so far. He said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Government of India is preparing an action plan under which efforts will be made to computerise all the PACS across the country and link them with District Banks, State Co-operative Banks, and NABARD, according to a PIB release.

Shah said that the second major work that has been done today is the launch of Mukhyamantri Ghasiyari Kalyan Yojana. ” We know that women face great difficulty in providing fodder to the animals in the hills in adverse weather conditions. Here about 2,000 farmers will cultivate maize on about 1,000 acres of land and a plan has been made to make nutritious animal feed in a scientific way, which will benefit about one lakh farmers,” Shah said.

He said that the third work that has been done today is the inauguration of the Cooperative Training Center. These cooperative training centers are very important to take cooperative movement forward. The cooperation movement was weakened by previous governments, but Prime Minister Modi has done a great job for the welfare of crores of farmers, women, workers and fishermen, who are associated with cooperatives, by creating a new Ministry of Cooperation in the year we are celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.

He said that no one remembered for years what would happen to small and medium farmers, fishermen, women, and men engaged in animal husbandry, if the cooperative movement did not take shape. ” But, PM Modi is from a poor family and the pain of the poor is close to his heart. Cooperation cannot be promoted without training. Under the Mukhyamantri Ghasiyari Kalyan Yojana, animal feed will be given at the rate of Rs two per kg on 30 percent subsidy and as a result, women will be saved from many calamities,” Shah added.

Shah asked where was the opposition in the state at the time of floods and during the Covid,-19 pandemic. But as soon as the elections come, they start holding demonstrations and press conferences on different issues. He said that the opposition is synonymous with corruption and scams and cannot work for welfare in any state. It can neither think about the poor nor provide good administration, and only his party can work for the welfare of the poor and provide good administration under the leadership of PM Modi, Shah said. He said he had come here during the elections in 2017 and we have fulfilled over 85 percent of the promises made in the party manifesto that time.

Shah said that the opposition wants to gain power and use it and never works for welfare of the people. He said that those who believe in appeasement can never work for welfare of Uttarkhand.

The Union Home Minister said the health card of Rs 5 lakh have been given to every household of Uttarakhand  and it is the government’s resolve to provide water from taps to every house in Uttarakhand which has a difficult terrain.  He said by 2022, pure drinking water would reach every household through taps.
