The new Tripura government, led by Manik Saha, has approved four welfare schemes in its first meeting.
Welfare schemes for people with impairments, primitive tribes, substandard health care, and IT investment are among the ideas approved by the new Tripura cabinet.
The first cabinet meeting of the new Tripura council of ministers was held on Monday, 16th May, barely an hour after the ministers took the oath of office.
Moreover, with only 10 months till the assembly elections, Tripura government spokeswoman Sushanta Chowdhury said that chief minister Manik Saha met with ministers, chief secretaries, and senior secretaries from several departments to develop the incoming cabinet’s roadmap.
Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha has directed the state chief secretary to develop initiatives for differently-abled people and primitive tribes.
Tripura minister Sushanta Chowdhury said officials have also been ordered to create public welfare plans on universal health care and to attract investment in the IT sector.
Welfare schemes will be in compliance with the central government
In addition, Chowdhury said, “The welfare schemes will be in compliance with the central government’s directives and supreme court judgments.”
“We will also take measures to ensure the socioeconomic growth of disabled persons,” he added.
The Tripura minister also stated that programs will be implemented to protect and uplift approximately two lakh members of the Reang group in the state.
Furthermore, the Tripura administration would implement at least two initiatives to attract investment and revitalize the state’s IT sector.
