All persons eligible for a social security pension, regardless of the quota system: Hemant | Ranchi News

Nemra (Ramgarh): He cited his government’s move to provide social security pensions as a big step, and Prime Minister Hemant Soren said on Saturday that all eligible persons would receive the pension regardless of the reservation system in the state.
Soren made the announcement during his visit to Lukaiya and near his home village, Nemra, under the Gola block of Ramgarh district to attend the ’64th Martyr Day’ of his grandfather ‘Sobaran Soren’ who celebrates on this day was murdered by moneylenders in 1957.
At a public meeting in Lukaiyatand, the prime minister said there would be no quota system while pensions are given to the elderly, women, widows and the disabled.
On the ‘Aapki Sarkar Apke Dwar’ program, Soren said people should not worry about their grievances as camps were often organized in panchayats by district officials and panchayat representatives to visit to solve all their problems. The camps offer services including issues related to caste certificates, income certificates, Aadhaar card corrections, ration cards and social security pensions.
Speaking of migrant workers, unemployment and poverty, the prime minister said these problems are the phenomenon of Jharkhand but his government has started schemes to change the situation and skilled youth could start their own business with a loan of Rs 25 lakh. which the government provides with subsidies.
“We started the Palash brand program for women’s self-help groups. This will help the groups as the products will be bought by the government,” said Soren, stressing that the brand would become a Rs 1,500 crore company in Jharkhand.
He further said: “There is potential for self-employment in the fishing segment as fish farming has been started by villagers in Chandil, Patratu and Maithan dam and in the coming days Jharkhand will be self-sufficient in fish production.”
Speaking about childhood malnutrition, as highlighted in the Niti Aayog report on the Multidimensional Poverty Index, Soren said malnourished children would be fed eggs six times a week that will be supplied from poultry farms run by the state’s villagers.
