Hazaribagh: Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said, this government is not running from closed and air conditioned rooms of Delhi and Ranchi but from villages and panchayats. In villages where there is no access road, officials are reaching there with full force with a bundle of schemes and are working to benefit you. This trend will continue further also. Chief Minister Hemant Soren addressed the program organized under the ongoing third phase of "Aapki Yojana-Aapki Sarkar-Aapke Dwar '' in Tetriya village of Ichaak block of Hazaribagh.
The Chief Minister said that "Aapki Yojana - Aapki Sarkar - Aapke Dwar" is such a mega campaign in which the problems of the common people are being solved by organizing camps in villages and panchayats. Here people are being made aware of the government schemes and being given its benefits. I am also continuously participating in camps and trying to see how people are taking benefits of the government's welfare schemes. I am happy that there is a festival-like atmosphere in these camps. People are very excited to join the government schemes.
The Chief Minister said that the third phase of “Aapki Yojana – Aapki Sarkar – Aapke Dwar” is currently going on. A total of about 80 lakh applications were received in the first phase in the year 2021 and the second phase in the year 2022. Through these applications we got information about all the problems of the general public. After this, the priority of these problems was decided and work was done to implement them on the ground by making a plan towards their solution. Government schemes are moving forward with this commitment to reach every person.
The Chief Minister said that it has been 23 years since Jharkhand became a separate state. Public interest has been continuously ignored in the last two decades. People's problems continued to be ignored. District and block offices were not functioning properly. But, our government changed this practice. The responsibilities of the officers were fixed. He was given clear instructions to approach the villages and Panchayats and listen to the problems of the people with full sensitivity and find solutions to them. Our government's thinking is that now you should get the benefits of all the government schemes and solutions to your problems, not from the block office but from the Panchayat office.
The Chief Minister said that Jharkhand is a state where every elderly widow and disabled person is getting the benefit of pension. Our government has implemented the Universal Pension Scheme and is connecting all eligible persons with pension. I would like to tell you that today there are many families in which people of several generations are taking advantage of the pension scheme.
The Chief Minister said that every person should get information about the welfare schemes of the government. To ensure that no one remains untouched by the schemes due to lack of information, booklets related to government welfare schemes will be distributed among school children. These children will tell their parents about the schemes through this booklet so that they can take advantage of the schemes they need.
The Chief Minister said that the government has taken upon itself the responsibility of educating girls. To ensure that the education of girls is not interrupted due to financial constraints, they are being linked to Savitribai Phule Kishori Samriddhi Yojana. Not only this, the government will also work on improving the future of girls. Now girls will become engineers, doctors, lawyers and officers after getting education. For this, they will be provided financial assistance by the government.
The Chief Minister said that the government is making concerted efforts for the empowerment of all sections of the society. Many more schemes like Mukhyamantri Pashudhan Yojana, Birsa Harit Gram Yojana and Didi Bari Yojana are running for farmers and livestock farmers.

Women are becoming self-reliant and self-reliant by joining government schemes. Many schemes are going on for the safety and welfare of workers. Employment is being provided to the youth on a large scale in the government and private sector. The government is completing 4 years on 29th December. On this occasion, 8 to 9 thousand youth will get appointment letters.
The Chief Minister said that Jharkhand is not a backward state, but it was left to become backward. No meaningful effort has been made to solve the basic problem here. We all know that Jharkhand is a village dominated state. In such a situation, the state cannot be strengthened without strengthening the villages. This is why our government is strengthening the foundation that will strengthen the rural economy.
The Chief Minister said that Jharkhand is a young state. This state will turn 25 in the year 2025. We have set the goal that in the coming two years, we will make Jharkhand such a powerful state that it will be capable of doing everything on its own. There will be no need to ask from anyone. People will get their full rights and entitlements and will be able to live a happy life.
The Chief Minister said that the dependence on DVC for power supply in some districts including Hazaribagh will be ended very soon. The state government will ensure that there is 24-hour uninterrupted power supply in all these districts. More than one lakh electricity consumers in Hazaribagh district alone are getting the benefit of 100 units of free electricity.

At the same time, connectivity is being strengthened to connect every village with the block and district headquarters. The government has started the Mukhyamantri Gram Gaadi Yojana. Through this scheme, now transportation facilities will be available from village to city. Elderly, disabled, women, students and Jharkhand agitators will be able to avail this transport service free of cost.
