Govt's shift from social policy to digitisation worrisome: Church

The Goa Church has expressed concern over the Centre's move to promote cashless transactions, claiming that it has shifted from its social policy for the uplift the poor people.

"The shift from the social policy of 'Roti, Kapda aur Makaan' for uplift of the poor sections of the society to an emphasis on digital and cashless policy involving smart phones, ATM cards and Paytm apps as the basic requirement for every citizen to avail of government benefits and purchase their basic needs is a worrisome phenomenon," Goa Church organ 'Council for Social Justice and Peace' said in its guidelines issued on Saturday across the state for Catholic voters in the run-up to the Goa polls scheduled on February 4.
