Farmers' issue, job creation top Raj govt agenda: Pilot
Jaipur: Having announced loan wavier for farmers, the Rajasthan government will soon roll out some other measures to enhance the ecosystem for the farming community and for the youth in need of jobs, Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot said.
He said farmers' issues and job creation for youngsters will dominate the agenda of the new Congress government in the state. Pilot, after the formation of the Rajasthan Cabinet, said work has begun and the government will start delivering on the promises made in the party's election manifesto.
"We have started working from the very first day by announcing farm loan waiver. Agrarian crisis is on the top of the agenda and very soon, there will be quick and substantive steps by the government to enhance the ecosystem for farming community to make sure that farming becomes a profitable venture," Pilot told PTI.
"We will very soon start job creation on priority basis. These are the two issues which we will be going to be principally focused on because Rajasthan deserves a government that delivers on these two fronts," he said.
The deputy chief minister said the manifesto will be given to the chief secretary, like previous times, and it will be made an official document for the government to function.
"The policy promises the Congress party has made will become a firm official commitment as we move forward," he said. The loan waiver for farmers was announced by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on December 19, two days after taking oath.
