Karnataka launches ‘Revenue Documents at Your Doorstep’ programme

At the launch of the ‘Revenue Documents at Your Doorstep’ programme in Chikkaballapur district on Saturday, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said, “It was a pity that people were made to run from pillar to post to get basic documents like caste certificate and RTC. Therefore, Revenue Minister R Ashok has formulated this novel programme to end the plight of the poor.”

Targeting the Congress, the chief minister said: “Congress leaders have been talking about the welfare of the poor, Dalits and the backward communities for the last 75 years since Independence. But they used the poor as a vote bank. They indulged in self-aggrandisement in the name of the poor. If they had walked the talk, we would not have felt the need to launch this programme.”

“Ensuring fair prices for farmers’ toil and produce is our resolve. I have proved my commitment in this regard by announcing the Vidya Nidhi scholarship scheme for farmers’ children within three hours of taking the oath as the chief minister. Pension has been increased for 50 lakh families. Ours is a government with concern for the poor. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is paying Rs 6,300 per hectare for farmers engaged in dry land farming. We have doubled the compensation for crop loss during the recent floods. I have allocated Rs 25,000 crore for irrigation and Rs 2,800 crore for horticulture. The crop loss compensation has been transferred to farmers’ accounts within one month,” Bommai added.
