85 schemes with set time-frame launched in J&K

New Delhi, Aug 25 (IANS): The Centre on Sunday launched 85 people-oriented development schemes, like PM-KISAN, PM-KISAN-Pension, Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana and Stand-Up India, in Jammu and Kashmir.

The government aims to achieve 100 per cent coverage of these schemes, which come under 21 ministries, within one month (by September 30).

A slew of insurances schemes, including the Atal Pension Yojana, has also been introduced in the newly carved Union Territory and the government plans to provide electricity to all the J&K households.

The PM's special initiatives, like LPG connection to the poor household and direct benefit transfer (DBT) for LPG and kerosene, focussing to empower women especially in rural areas, have also been introduced.

While the PM-KISAN and the PM-KISAN-Pension schemes come under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana and the Stand-Up India scheme come under the Ministry of Finance.

J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik said, "As we march to a new and bright future, I want every resident of J&K to benefit from the changes that have been made. I want every eligible individual to be covered by the development programmes being implemented by the Government of India all over the country, including J&K".

Stating that in the last few decades the people of J&K suffered due to separatist propaganda and cross-border terrorism, the Governor said, "It created an atmosphere of fear and terror, and also impeded socio-economic development in the state."

Appealing common people to take benefit of these schemes, Malik said, "I want you to come forward and take full advantage of these schemes".

    What A Joke???. What is the meaning of these schemes and who is the beneficiary???. There are no jobs created, there is wide spread fear and terror, state is ruled at gun point, there is no peace and stability, no opposition leaders are allowed to mingle with people freely which is a sign of complete normalcy and confidence building measure between people and govt. Is this just a media publicity to show everything is normal in Kashmir whereas people are living in fear and with complete lock down???. Even parents are not allowing thier children to attend school. What is your real scheme BJP in Kashmir?????...
