Jammu, Sep 28 :
Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), flagship scheme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi government to offer free gas connection to Below Poverty Line (BPL) families is not being implemented in Panchayat Bagnoti of Nowshera tehsil of Rajouri district with hundreds of families denied its benefits due to administrative failure.
Locals also express resentment against the Government for not showing its concern towards providing basic amenities to public hence adding to their sufferings.
According to Sarpanch Panchayat Bagnoti, Sangeeta Sharma,“ “Ujjawala Yojana launched by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an aim to provide succor to the women especially residing in rural areas but it’s unfortunate to say that there are several families who are still deprived of PM’s flagship scheme due to failure of authorities”. She had recently met several villagers.
She also held the local distributor of Bharat Gas responsible for the unsuccessful PM's flagship scheme.
“Demands of people are being continuously ignored by administration. Poor people are being denied benefits of centrally sponsored schemes for the public good do not reach out to the masses”, said locals.
The developmental projects started years back have been left after half completion at various areas of the Bagnoti Panchayat apart from Jammu division.
There are also concerns over non-functioning of dug wells. Four dugwell have been constructed to resolve the water scarcity in these areas and due to non availability of motors and pipes the aforesaid dug wells are of no use to the public.
It is pertinent to mention here that regular rise in cost price of Liquefied Petroleum Gas refill is taking toll on poor who were benefitted by Prime Minister Ujjawal Yojna ( PMUY) getting free stoves and cylinders for LPG refills.
Presently over burdened by frequently-increasing LPG rates, though subsidy is released in their bank accounts, the poor feel at loss to shell out increased money which they allege hit their monthly budget.
