Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, on Friday announced to provide 1 lakh government jobs to the youth of Assam. He also said that 10 new police battalions will be created.
“We firmly believe in delivering on our poll promises and will remain steadfast in providing 1 lakh Govt jobs to the youth of Assam. This Assam Budget 2021 will pave way for filling up vacant posts in 48 departments and creating 10 new police battalions in the State,” the chief minister Himanta Biswa said.
The CM also posted the Budget speech by finance minister Ajanta Neog at Legislative Assembly.
“The Assam Budget 2021 is an embodiment of our promise to fulfill the aspirations of every Assamese. I commend my colleague Smt Ajanta Neog for her unwavering commitment to uplift every section of our society through this budget and boost the double-engine of development,” Himanta Biswa went on to say.
Calling the Budget pro-poor, he said it will greatly strengthen the COVID19-ravaged economy of Assam. “Many path-breaking initiatives in the budget will also drive economic revival post-pandemic & help realize Adarniya PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s dream of Atmanirbhar Bharat.”
“For many years, women of rural Assam bore the burden of mounting debt of microfinance loans. As promised in our poll manifesto, we announced our flagship 3-tier Assam Microfinance Incentive & Relief Scheme 2021 to free our mothers & sisters from the shackles of indebtedness,” the CM tweeted.
According to the chief minister, during these trying times, compassion & care have been the motto of his government. “For aiding the families, who’ve lost their loved ones due to COVID-19, we’ve allocated ₹40 crore in Assam Budget 2021. This first-of-its-kind initiative in India reiterates our resolve to stand by our people.”
Saying that his government’s biggest priority is to completely eradicate poverty from Assam, he stated that the benefit of the DBT scheme, Orunodoi, will be increased to Rs 1,000 per month to support the financially weaker families.
The Assam Budget 2021 is balanced and growth-oriented, the CM claimed, that fulfills the aspirations of various sections of the society.
“It seeks to fight the challenges posed by COVID-19 without sacrificing growth while keeping the focus on women, youth, farmers, and Assam’s rich cultural heritage,” he concluded.
