Revival of J&K’s economy is our priority: Dr Sitharaman

In continuation of party’s ongoing “Vikas Parv” programmes across the country, BJP organized a similar programme at Jammu, wherein Union Minister of Commerce and Industries, Dr Nirmala Sitharaman, BJP SC Morcha National President, Dushyant Kumar Gautam, Lok Sabha MP, Jugal Kishore Sharma and Rajya Sabha MP, Shamsher Singh Manhas addressed the gathering to highlight the achievements of Prime Minister Narendra Modi led NDA government.
Dr Nirmala Sitharaman, while addressing the gathering, said that the country witnessed total policy paralysis during UPA-II as there was no merit in taking decisions and the nation had to suffer. After taking over as Prime Minister, Narendra Modi brought the system on rails, introduced work culture and India entered into a new era. She said that although Modi was given mandate for five years but our government and the party has been going to public with report card of the NDA to brief the people about various programmes and welfare schemes being undertaken as well as fulfilling the promises of the election manifesto.
Nirmala Sitharaman said that the Congress had launched MNREGA with a slogan of Gareebi Hatao but unfortunately it was misused and the poor were exploited and Modi government wants the economic empowerment of the next generations of poor. She said that the government at the Centre has fixed target of providing five crore of new gas connections to poor urban women within next two years. She also held the UPA government responsible for frauds and mismanagement of Public Distribution System (PDS) and claimed that Rs 36,000 crores have been saved by deleting the fake cards by the NDA government. She also spoke in details on schemes like “Beti Bachao Beti Padao”, “Mudra Bank”, “PM Fasal Bima Yojana”, “Atal Pension Scheme”, etc. and added that the nation is heading towards ‘Congress Mukt Bharat’. The Union Minister, while claiming to check the price rise, said that the previous UPA-II was responsible for the same and expressed commitment of Modi government towards the displaced people including refugees.
