Deputy Chief Minister Pravati Parida on Tuesday urged media houses in the state to refrain from telecasting confusing news about ‘Subhadra Yojana’. 

With the BJP coming to power in the state, there is a lot of eagerness among the beneficiaries to know the criteria to receive Rs 50,000 under Subhadra Yojana. The party had announced it in its ‘Sankalpa Patra’. 

Deputy Chief Minister Pravati Parida, who is also in charge of the Mission Shakti and Tourism Departments, requested media houses not to telecast any misleading news items on the Subhadra Yojana. 

“I have already told you that it (Subhadra Yojana) is in the draft stage. Women will definitely receive Subhadra money within 100 days. When it is in the draft stage, it is not justifiable to propagate regarding who will be eligible and who will be excluded. I would like to request media houses to show what the government is saying. They should not confuse people with their own speculations. They should cooperate with the government,” said the Deputy Chief Minister.

“Subhadra Yojana was in the BJP’s ‘Sankalpa Patra’. The Cabinet has also approved it. The government will inform about its details going forward,” she added.

While attending a programme named ‘Maa Painee Gachha Tie’ (A Tree For Mother) launched by the Tourism department, she urged the employees of the department to plant a tree. 

While informing that two thousand trees will be planted in the coming week and a document of it will be sent to the Prime Minister, she also said that an agenda will also be prepared on rural tourism.
