The chief minister stated that in the next couple of months, several projects would be either inaugurated or launched across various districts.

Referring to the period when one had to resort to strikes and demonstrations to get a genuine popular demand fulfilled, the chief minister said genuine aspirations are being taken care of by the current regime on its own, as it understands the pulse of the public.

The chief minister also spoke about various initiatives aimed at welfare of the public, especially those aimed at poverty alleviation, while appealing for mass participation in these programmes.

He appealed to the economically disadvantaged families which were left out of the Orunodoi scheme in its first phase to apply without fail for the upcoming Orunodoi 2.0.

He also sought the public’s co-operation in achieving the intended aims of Mission Basundhara 2.0.

Appealing to those involved in paddy cultivation to avail of the paddy procurement scheme, the chief minister said this has been launched to ensure there is no distress selling by farmers to middle-men and unscrupulous traders.

He said instructions have been issued to all deputy commissioners to take strict actions against any trader found to be purchasing paddy from cultivators at below Rs 2040 per quintal.
