BJP Jamshedpur West felicitates party workers for LS poll performance
Mail News Service
Jamshedpur, June 16: State Food and Civil Supplies Minister Saryu Roy Sunday urged the Jharkhand government to give ownership rights of government and Tata lease lands to their occupants. He said the government could make Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of providing house to everyone by 2022 only by legalizing the occupancy of government and lease lands in the city.
Roy raised the demand during a felicitation programme organized at Tulsi Bhavan, Bistupur, to felicitate BJP workers of Jamshedpur West Assembly constituency area. He said over 90 per cent of the people living in Mango had ‘illegal possession’ written in their khatiyans. A large number of such people are also there in Kadma and Sonari, he said.
The minister said efforts should be made on behalf of the state government to provide people ownership right of their houses built on government and lease land. Such land should be registered in the name of their owners on the basis of area, he said.
Roy said during the erstwhile Bihar regime, the then Revenue Secretary had issued a circular in which it was proposed to open Register II for occupants of government lands having an occupancy of 12 to 20 years.
Roy said many issues of the people of Jamshedpur would be resolved once people are given ownership right.
Speaking about BJP’s performance in the recent Parliamentary elections, Roy said party’s success was the result of good work done in the last five years. He said the Central government was working seriously for the progress and prosperity of the nation. He said efforts should be made in the upcoming Assembly elections to secure majority votes in maximum number of polling booths. He said development and welfare schemes were meant for all citizens irrespective of their religion.
Roy gave certificates to party workers for their good performance in the recent LS polls. He said each worker would be given Rs 1100 in appreciation.
Also present on the occasion, Jamshedpur MP Bidyut Baran Mahato said the party’s sweeping performance was due to the hard work and sincerity of booth workers.
Among those present during the programme included district BJP president Dinesh Kumar, Muralidhar Kedia, Mukul Mishra, Chitranjan Verma, Sur Ranjan Roy, Rajesh Shukla, Ashok Goyal and Ashutosh Roy.
