Dr.Thomas (Special Correspondent)

More schemes will be chalked out in the next budget, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Speaking after distributing various facilities free of cost organised by various departments here on Sunday,he said Chamarajanagar MP V.Srinivasaprasad has displayed humanity.

Usually the state and union Governments schemes are distributed to the beneficiaries by young leaders but veteran politician like Srinivasaprasad took lot of interest to hold this camp,personally identified the beneficiaries and got distributed the facilities for them. This shows his social concern.

Bommai said handicapped must not become a cause for the mental stress.If God shows handicapped in one part but makes up in another form.

We can see till our eyes can see but the visually impaired are blessed with the special vision to see the whole world.We don’t have inner eye or the special vision to see everything.Now you decide who’s visually impaired. Come out of inferiority complex.

A special scheme has been formulated under the Prime Minister’s program specially for the Divyangas to make them leve with self-confidence.All legislators must hold such programs”.

Bommai said as soon as he became the CM the pension for the Divyangas was hiked.For those with less than 70 per cent handicapped, the pension was hiked from Rs 600 to Rs 1000 per month.

A number of programs have been chalked out for them but those schemes must reach the beneficiaries.It is good that 1500 persons are getting facilities and Srinivasaprasad must be compliment for it.

In the comin days the government will organise such camps and more facilities will be given to them in the next budget. It has been decided to distribute motorised three wheelers to the physically challenged. Reservation is given for them in the government jobs.

The CM said steps will be taken for the construction of all communities community halls as dreamt by Srinivasaprasad.

The Nanjangud MLA B.harshavardhan is very active and has brought schemes worth Rs 500 crore.Finding fault is very easy but reaching the goal through achievement is very important.

He said there will be a minimum of 50000 be beneficiaries in each constituency of Kisan Sanman, Ayushman Bharat,Vidya Nidhi for farmers and weavers and stree Shakthi,and they must return the help given by the government back to the society.

MP Srinivasaprasad, MLA B.Harshavardhan and others were present.
