Union Minister of State for Minority Affairs John Barla said there is a need for creating awareness on central and state government welfare schemes among the masses.
Addressing Buddhist monks, nuns, student unions and representatives from various NGOs on Wednesday, the MoS said, “We need to make more publicity about various welfare schemes provided by central and state governments.”
MoS John Barla appealed to the district administration to conduct awareness programmes at village levels on schemes like ‘sikho aur kamao’, financial aid for the construction of community-based halls, hospitals, learning centres, hostels, Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram (PMJVK), etc.
He said NGOs registered in darpan portal can directly contact the minority affairs ministry and start training centres for both men and women.
“I have come here to make my ministry closer to you and shall continue to work for you,” MoS John Barla said and handed over the information booklets to the monks and nuns.
Tawang DC Sang Phuntsok requested flexibility in state share in central schemes.
Highlighting the shortage of teachers in government schools, he further requested the minority affairs ministry for opening a model residential school in a mission mode in the district and a branch coaching centre for proper training and guidance of young graduates of the district.
He also highlighted problems being faced by farmers and scopes of the agriculture and horticulture sector in the district.
We should stop people living in border areas to migrate to towns and for this to happen we will have to provide employment opportunities in their villages through skill development schemes and rural tourism, he added.
