Chief Minister Bhajan Lal visited his native village, Attari, for the first time on Monday, about one and a half months after assuming office. During this visit, thousands of villagers welcomed the CM wholeheartedly.
Women, men, and children who climbed onto rooftops showered flowers and extended a grand welcome, while CM Bhajan Lal accepted the greetings of the villagers by circumambulating the entire village barefoot. The CM also reached his ancestral residence and also sought the blessings of his parents.
The CM, while addressing the public meeting, stated, “Our government is for the common people…I come from a farming family, and I have witnessed the suffering of the farmers up close.”
He emphasized, “It is the priority of our government to make farmers financially strong and happy. Working towards this goal after the formation of the government, we have made farmer-friendly decisions, such as increasing the support price for wheat purchase and enhancing the Kisan Samman Nidhi.”
CM Bhajan Lal mentioned, “The integrated ERCP project will undoubtedly be completed within five years. Through the ERCP project, abundant water for drinking and irrigation will be made available to Eastern Rajasthan. Fulfilling the guarantee of PM Modi, we have decided to provide LPG cylinders at Rs 450 to women in selected BPL families under the Ujjwala scheme. We will fulfil every guarantee of the PM.”
The Chief Minister expressed concern over the incidents of paper leaks in recent years, which have jeopardised the future of the state’s youth. He said that a Special Investigation Team (SIT) is formed to investigate these cases, and every person found guilty will be punished.
Sharma visited the temple of family folk deities and the Chamunda Mata temple in his native village. He also paid respects to Dr Ambedkar’s statue in the village and visited the Bihari Ji temple in Bachhamadi, offering prayers.
