Clearly with an eye on Assembly elections in his state in 2023, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot on Sunday, inaugurated projects worth Rs 95 crore and laid the foundation stone of another set of projects worth Rs 333 crore.

Attending an event in Bharatpur, Gehlot committed to another set of projects worth Rs 1081 crores, pending approval.

“We are working aggressively to tackle inflation and unemployment in the country. The Ujjwala Yojana will be launched on April 1, 2023. This will provide BPL and poor families, LPG cylinders at the price of Rs 500. We will also make ‘ration kits’ available for families to reduce the household costs,” he declared.

Lauding achievements so far, he held that Rajasthan had become a Model State, because of its work in the health sector. Nearly Rs 10 lakh crore has been spent on people under the Mukhyamantri Chiranjeevi Swastha Bima Yojana. “Durghatna Bima Yojana schemes totalling Rs 5 lakh crore have reached out to people in adverse situations,” he apprised.

Gehlot claimed that the state government has taken big strides for farmers’ welfare. “We have taken two major steps for the farmers. First time in the country, a special ‘Krishi Budget’ was presented. In addition to this, we also waived off loans of as many as 22 lakh farmers. Due to our Mukhyamantri Kisan Mitra Urja Yojana, the electricity bills of 8 lakh people came as zero,” he said.

He said that Rajasthan is always ahead in providing employment opportunities to people. “So far, we have provided 1.35 lakh people, and the process is underway on other 1.25 lakh other posts. Other than this, MoUs worth 11 lakh crores were signed in the Invest Rajasthan Summit,” he added.

Taking the laurels further, he emphasized that beneficiary schemes of the Rajasthan government are gaining praise across the country.
