Besides, through its initiative ‘Vanthanbhi Vikasyatra’ the government has carried out over 25,000 development works at the cost of Rs.30,000 crore in 4100 taluka panchayat seats, the Chief Minister added.

Speaking about the objectives of GKM the Chief Minister said, “the aim is to give the benefits directly in the hands of poor, and to free the poorest people from the shackles of poverty”. With a view to provide basic knowledge of computer, which is essential in this era, to the poor youth the state government has launched ‘empower’ programme, he said.

Mr. Modi outlined the Rs.40,000 crore Vanbandhu Kalyan Yojana and the qualitative changes the scheme has brought to the lives of tribals in Ambaji to Umargam belt. Chief Minister also spoke about Sagarkhedu Vikas Yojana for the seafarer community across the 1600 km. seacoast of Gujarat and about Rs.25,000 crore Shaheri Garib Samruddhi Yojana for the welfare of poor living in city areas.

Mr.Modi appealed people to beware of those who delude public with the luring schemes on paper. He said that while some elements mislead poor with empty words, his government has actually implemented various schemes related to health, education, employment and skill development for the tribals, dalit and baxipanch communities. Gujarat is the only state which has provided houses/plots to all the BPL of 0-16 category, he said.
