Union Petroleum and Natural Gas and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, inspired by the views of Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar, has adopted the mantra of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas in all policies of the government. Apart from this, the spirit of entrepreneurship has arisen in the SC-ST category today, this class has become the most employable but not the job seeker. This proves that a new style of positive initiative and promotion of work has been developed in India. Pradhan Dalit was addressing a special National Vendor Development Program organized by the Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the petroleum and steel sector. On this occasion, the Petroleum Minister also flagged off the 3,121st LPG Tanker Truck. Launching the tanker truck under the launch block LPG Tanker-Truck Vendor Scheme to link the petroleum goods movement business, Pradhan said that this class has to understand who their real sympathizer or partner is.
With this, Pradhan cited the tanker-truck scheme and said that earlier this scheme had reservation for this class. But such traders were only four percent because they were being excluded by imposing various economic rules. In Modi government this figure has come up to 16 percent and soon it will go up to 22.5 percent. The reason for this is that the government observed that this class does not have capital. In such a situation, this reservation is only a joke. Therefore, the government can immediately provide loans up to 90 percent from banks. He was given a loan under the Stand-up India Scheme and his participation in the scheme reached 16 percent. Similarly, for the upliftment of this class engaged in micro-small scale industry, a new rule was made and it was necessary for all government companies to buy 25 percent of goods instead of 20. Earlier this range was from 15 to 20 percent.
Apart from this, LPG agency for this category has also given a big share in the allocation of petrol pump. The government came out with a plan to allocate 75 thousand petrol pumps and reserved 20 thousand pumps for this category. Out of these, more than 17 thousand allotments have been done. 8 crore gas connections were given across the country under the Ujjwala scheme. Of these, 30 million or 38 percent connections were given to this class. It is believed that the government is helping one lakh SC-STs in the country to set up industries, so that they can at least Employ five people. With this, about six lakh people of this category will be connected with the job-employment-industry. In such a situation, those who show a picture of Ambedkar on the citizenship law and other issues will have to decide who are his real benefactors or followers of Ambedkar who have kept him deprived and exploited till now.
