Ranchi, May 25: Addressing a workshop on South Chhotanagpur Divisional 20-Point program today at Dhurva, Chief Minister Raghubar Das said priorities of the 20-Point program have changed.
“The purpose of the 20-Point Program is different today from what it was in the year 1975. Keeping this in view, Jharkhand government has requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bring necessary changes in it.
Now sanitation, digitalization, LPG and cashless transactions are focus area. They should be included in the 20-Point program. The 20-Point meeting should be held at an interval of three months. At an interval of six month, the program should be reviewed at state level,” said the CM.
Das said the work culture should be changed for development. “Laws should be simplified. The power we get is to empower people. The members should be well versed with the schemes of 20 Point Program so that they can inquire with the concerned officer.
The members and officers of the program should compete among themselves to keep their blocks clean and ODF (open defecation free). Poor women should be helped to get gas connection under Ujjawala scheme. Around 5 crore saplings will be planted from 2nd July onwards. Members should take active participation,” he said.
Ministers Nilkanth Singh Munda, C. P. Singh, Vice Chairman of 20-Point Program Rakesh Prasad, MPs Ram Tahal Choudhary, Mahesh Poddar, MLA Navin Jaiswal, CS Raj Bala Verma and other officers were present on this occasion.
