Raipur, Jun 30:
Chhattisgarh Minister for Health & Family Welfare and Panchayat & Rural Development TS Singhdeo on Tuesday reiterated the demand to roll out Minimum Income Scheme (NYAY) for the people from weaker section of society which he claimed would bring the economy back on track.
Senior Congress leader and Cabinet Minister Singhdeo made the above statement from his micro blogging account in response to the suggestion given by the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi in which the latter had expected that his suggestions would be taken up by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the larger interest of nation.
Chhattisgarh Minister Singhdeo said that the Central Government has enough resources to bring the economy back to the track. He however, said that only will is required to take up the important suggestion. Singhdeo further added that instead of increasing fuel prices, the Govt must immediately roll out NYAY scheme to put money in the hands of poor, which will then help create demand and spin the giant wheel.
However, one of the follower reminded Singhdeo to bring the economy back on the track in Chhattisgarh and ensure employment to the youth.
It is notable that the NYAY scheme is one of the ambitious plan mulled by the Congress leadership during the last Lok Sabha elections but has failed to gain momentum. Despite Congress being in power, the state government here too has not taken any appropriate steps to launch the ambitious scheme of Rahul Gandhi in Chhattisgarh.
