“Following COVID pandemic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government has ensured 5 kilograms of rice per person and inhabitants of Rishi Para are reaping this benefit for the past two years. Similarly, benefits received by the localities on the supply of LPG cylinders under Ujjwala Yojana, free tape water connections under Jal Jeevan Mission, etc.”, he added.
Deb said “Since 1971, the local people of Rishi Para have been staying as temporary slum dwellers as most of them still left to complete their proper government-related documentation for which they are still far away from reaping all benefits provided by the government. However, as soon as the procedures are completed, they will easily get access to all benefits.”
Praising the significant role of BJP-led government, development of state and welfare of people had expedited and increase in per capita income is one of the finest examples.
