Commitment to environmental protection & conservation has lent a separate identity to Bishnoi community: Gehlot
Sri Ganganagar: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said on Saturday that the Bishnoi community has made an invaluable contribution in the interest of environmental protection and wildlife conservation and that is why the society has a different identity in the country and the world. Gehlot was addressing the concluding program of Shri Jambhavani Hari Katha organized at Shri Bishnoi Mandir Samiti Budha Johad (Dabla) located in Raisinghnagar of Sri Ganganagar district.
Gehlot said that the teachings and ideals of Shri Jambheshwar Bhagwan are relevant even today. “The society is working on the direction shown by him for the protection of environment and protection of life,” Gehlot said and also remembered the Khejdarli sacrifice.
The Chief Minister said, “the state government has opened 211 new colleges in four years to promote girl education, of which 94 are girls’ colleges. Along with this, girls’ colleges will be run in any government school where there are 500 girl students. The upcoming budget will be focused on youth and the students.
The government is committed for all-round development of farmers. Girdawari is being done in affected fields of farmers,” he said. Regarding the flagship schemes, Gehlot said that there are no such schemes like Rajasthan anywhere else in the country. “The CM Chiranjeevi Health Insurance Scheme has provision for free treatment up to Rs 10 lakh and accident insurance up to Rs 5 lakh. State govt is bearing the entire cost of organ transplant. Realizing the resolution that ‘no one sleeps hungry’, food is being provided to the common man with respect through Indira Rasoi for Rs.8. Public welfare schemes should be widely publicised so that their benefits reach every village. Relief has been provided to farmers and the masses from the high inflation in the country, due to which the electricity bills of about 9 lakh farmers and more than 40 lakh consumers have become zero,” Gehlot said.
