Ranchi: Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Monday reached out to the people of a Jharkhand village and informed them about the Centre's aim to provide food, employment and shelter to all in the coming years.
Naqvi, the minister of state for parliamentary and minority affairs, said he would interact with the people to
know their requirements and take the feedback ahead of the 2016-17 budget.
"I have come to talk to you, connect with you and coordinate with people of all sections ahead of the next budget that will shape and change destiny of the people," he said.
"The aim is to get to know the requirements of the people by meeting them in the villages and not preparing budgets sitting in the room of ministries," he told the people of Kute village, about 18 km from Ranchi.
Naqvi said the ministers have been given the task to meet the people of two constituencies each and get back with
feedback ahead of the Central budget, which would be prepared on the basis of their requirements.
He said he had just returned with feedback from people of Palghar Lok Sabha constituency in Maharashtra and now have come to meet people of Ranchi LS constituency.
"The Centre's aim is to provide 3Rs (Roti, Rozi and Residence) in the coming years," Naqvi said observing many of the people gathered at today's meeting were from the minority community, who needed education, development and respect.
Alleging that the previous ten years of rule before the NDA took over had been corrupt, he claimed that the
18-month Narendra Modi government has strengthened the country’s economy.
"The government’s aim is to take progress to the last person... there are several schemes, which should benefit people straightway... the objective of Jan Dhan Yojana was to rid off middle persons and brokers... even now awareness about the scheme was necessary," Naqvi added.
