CM Dr. Manik Saha launches Nirman Shramik Welfare Scheme 2.0

Aiming to encourage more skilled workforce in the state, the Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha Thursday launched Nirman Shramik Welfare Scheme 2.0 here at Agartala Rabindra Bhawan and said that workers are the main architects of building nation. Addressing the event the chief minister said that the state government is sincere about the workers' welfare and various schemes are being implemented towards their development.

“Earlier in the state a reign of owner-worker conflict was set up, but now that culture has been done away with. Both the owner and worker are dependent on each other. Earlier meetings, rallies etc. were common in the name of workers’ movement, which is no longer existent in the rule of this government. Now the workers are getting their due wages in their accounts through DBT,” Dr. Saha said. The chief minister also said, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi the central government is formulating new plans one after another. And the state government is also marching ahead on the footprints of the central government.

He said, everybody should contribute to the development of the state. He also referred to the ongoing Prati Ghare Sushason campaign as a drive to reach out to the people in remote areas with various welfare schemes. Speaking on the occasion the labour minister Bhagaban Chandra Das said, launching of the Nirman Shramik Welfare Scheme 2.0 marks a historic day in the state. He said, “Present government has taken up various welfare schemes for the welfare of the workers. Because, this government believes not in slogans but in action.”

The chief minister handed over cheques to the beneficiaries under Nirman Shramik Welfare Scheme 2.0 and also launched the Labour Cess Collection Portal. Chairman of Tripura Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board and MLA Binoy Bhushan Das, secretary of labour department Abhishek Singh and labour commissioner Dr. Naresh Babu N among others were present in the programme.
