CM defends JPSC terms manuvadi mindset hurt at large number of tribals, Dalits, backwards getting selected
Ranchi, December 22: The last day of the winter session of the Jharkhand assembly saw three bills passed through voice vote.
The bills which were passed included Tribal Universities Bill-2021, Jharkhand Electricity Fee (Amendment) Bill-2021 and Court Fee (Jharkhand Amendment Bill) 2021.
The Tribal University Bill will be sent to the Governor for assent after which it will become the first tribal university in the eastern region of the country.
In the meeting of the Tribal Advisory Council (TAC) held a few months ago, many big decisions were taken regarding the tribals. In this the decision to open a tribal university is also one. Pandit Raghunath Murmu Tribal University will be the first tribal university in eastern India. It is planned to be constructed between Galudih and Ghatshila in Jamshedpur. For this, 20 acres of land has also been identified.
BJP leader Anant Ojha opposed the electricity duty amendment Bill by stating that only industries have been included in the bill. Common consumers should also be included in this. On this, Finance Minister Rameshwar Oraon said that industrial units also generate electricity from generators. In such a situation, this bill has been brought to try to get rid of them from one tax.
Chief minister Hemant Soren in his address on the last day of the session blamed lack of education for the plight of Jharkhand. The CM said that there is no participation in the executive, legislature for those for whom there are tribal departments and ministries. Attacking the previous governments, he said that sometimes double, sometimes triple and sometimes lame government came. The dark clouds over the state are now dispersing. The CM said that during the Corona period, our government was not sleeping and was making an action plan.
Hemant Soren further said that through the Sarkar Apki Dwar program government has reached where no other government had reached before. Pandit Raghunath Murmu Tribal University Bill has been brought to keep the language culture alive in the state.
In the midst of CM’s speech, BJP MLAs went out of the house creating a ruckus. Hemant Soren further said that since 2014, the fire of communalism started burning in the state. The atmosphere of peace has again been restored in the coalition government.
“We brought Anti Mob Lynching Bill in the House to restore peace among communities,” said Soren.
CM admitted that there are plethora of problems appealed to the people of the state to be patient and their grievance will be addressed.
“The government is giving pension to the people of all sections of the state. Pension is being given to people above 60 years of age and disabled people of the state. After December 29, disabled will be identified in the state,” said Soren.
The Chief Minister has told that he got information from WhatsApp at 12 o’clock in the night that the certificate of a disabled couple is not being made. After which he instructed the officers and at one o’clock in the night a certificate of Divyang was made.
In a veiled warning to BJP MLAs Soren said that those MLAs who are not attending the Sarkar Apke Dwar program will not be elected again.
CM said that when the children of Dalit, OBC, ST, SC are moving ahead, then people with Manuwadi thinking are feeling pain in their stomach. They do not like that the children of SC, ST, OBC become BDO, CO, IAS, IPS.
The Chief Minister during his speech in the house expressed his commitment to the development of tribal, poor, agitators who participated during the struggle for a separate state. He said that raiyati land which remained unused after its acquisition for industrial purpose will be returned to landowners and very soon path will be paved for 75 percent jobs to locals in all the public and private sector units functional and will be functional in the state.
Talking about giving proper respect to those who agitated for a tribal separate state chief minister Soren said they will be given a pension and 5 percent reservation in government jobs and for their identification, a welfare commission will be constituted.
