Ranchi: Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee (JPCC) said on Saturday that due to nationwide complete lockdown, the economy of the entire Country has collapsed, in such a situation, the Garib Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan is not enough to start in only 116 districts of the Country and only three districts of backward State like Jharkhand.
In a joint statement issued by JPCC Spokesperson Alok Kumar Dubey, Lal Kishorenath Shahdeo, Rajesh Gupta said that in the past also the Prime Minister announced a relief package of Rs 20 lakh crore, how much benefit the poor and middle class families got, it is well known and now how much benefit will be gained from this new scheme,it will also be known to everyone soon.Shahdeo said that out of 24 districts of Jharkhand 18 are included in the list of expected districts, so only three districts may be expected to get few employment opportunities, but to increase the employment opportunities in other districts under MGNREGA scheme more funds should be made available, as well as special assistance needs to be provided under the Food Security Act.
