Swati Tyagi, Lucknow:
4th October, Wednesday:
Prime Minister Modi announced a brand new scheme to electrify all villages in India and to provide electricity to all by the end of 2018. The Scheme was called the “Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana Or Saubhagya Initiative.” On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay the Prime Minister also dedicated a new ONGC building the Deendayal Urja Bhawan. He also dedicated to the nation The Booster Compressor Facility in Bassein Gas Field. Speaking on the occasion, The Prime Minister gave examples of the success of Jan dhan Yojana ,Ujjawala Yojana and Udan to highlight how the union government is implementing the scheme which benefit the poorest of the poor.
The aim of the Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Hat Ghar Yojana,which provide power connection to all the estimated four crore households which currently did not have a power connection. The outlay for this scheme will be over Rd 16000 crore. These connection will be provide free of cost to the poor ,the Prime Minister Said. The Scheme is good for the poor people. But the question is that the scheme is really works or not. As we all know about the Jan dhan Yojana which connect the common to the bank account and the government promised after opening the account some money was transferred in the account by the government but the money is not transferred yet.
To make success this scheme two things are necessary. First, the central government officers have to work hardly and give loyalty to complete their duty. Secondly, State government also pay attention to fulfill the scheme without corruption and complete the scheme on time. We are all responsible to give support to complete the scheme to the government. We have to care the public property because these are built for us .We are all responsible to make our India great not only the government.
After launching this scheme rural people are also expecting to get electricity 24 hours. Some news reports are also saying that they have some faith on Prime Minister. One of the villagers said in Uttar Pradesh “If we get the electricity then some small industry can run very easily. We will be also able to earn some money. But we must be aware also on those people who usually doing wrong activities with electricity. Govt. officers must take some strong actions to stop these illegal activities.”
