Jamshedpur, March 12: Welfare of Adivasis is the top priority of the Narendra Modi government. This was observed here on Sunday by the MP of Jamshedpur Bidyut Baran Mahato.
Addressing a press conference at his Bistupur office, Mahato said the Central government had increased the allocations to various ministries in the last 10 years. “The Central government has started Pradhan Mantri Vulnerable Tribal Group (PVTG) Vikas Mission for which Rs 15,000 crore has been allocated in this year’s budget. The Centre is also going to open Eklavya Model Residential Schools. All over the country, 38,800 teaching and assistant staff would be recruited for 740 schools. Around 3.5 lakh Adivasi students would receive education in these schools. In East Singhbhum, one such school was functional and three more are being built. One more school would be started in Patamada,” said the MP.
Mahato said the Modi government had prepared this year’s Budget, also known as the first Budget of the Amrit Kaal, for the next 25 years. “This Budget would strengthen the economy and keep it stable. Our current economic growth rate is 7 per cent. By the year 2027, India will leave countries like Japan and Germany behind to become third largest economy in the world,” said the MP. The MP was accompanied by state secretary of BJP Rita Mishra, former state spokesperson Rajesh Kumar Shukla, Anil Modi and district BJP president Gunjan Yadav.
