Expressing concern, he said that on one hand, we are talking about going to the moon, on the other hand, there are many problems like poverty, backwardness, unemployment and malnutrition in rural areas. It has been 22 years since the formation of a separate state but, rural areas are still untouched by the development he said adding that the condition of the villages and villagers was neither noticed by the government nor any meaningful effort was made to bring them into the mainstream.
But his government is making continuous efforts in the last 3 years towards strengthening the rural system.

On the other hand, social security schemes like Sarvajan Pension Yojana are working to provide economic security cover to the people.

In this episode, many schemes like Mukhyamantri Pashudhan Vikas Yojana, Birsa Harit Gram Yojana, Didi Bari Yojana and Chief Minister Employment Generation Scheme have been started. He said that the people should be associated with these schemes and also create awareness to connect others as with this they will become self-reliant and rural areas will also be strengthened.
He said that as a result of the policy being decided for agriculture today farmers are forced to leave agriculture and work as labourers. If the farmer does not grow the crop then how will the livelihood go on. In such a situation his government is working towards solving the problems of the farmers and making schemes in their interest. The resolution of his government is to connect the farmers with the fields he said.
