Govt. To Provide Direct Bank Transfers For Solar Panels: Report

Raipur– Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday referring to the PM Surya Ghar Free Electricity scheme, which currently covers one crore households, said his government strives to cut down electricity bills of consumers to zero.

The government will provide financial aid directly into bank accounts for setting up rooftop solar panels where 300 units will be made free and excess electricity produced will be bought back by the government, thereby creating additional income for citizens, he pointed out.

Modi’s comments highlight his criticism of the Congress party’s approach to governance and development in India.

He emphasizes the need for a focus on national development rather than just political power and criticizes the Congress for its alleged involvement in nepotism, corruption, and appeasement.

Modi also highlights the importance of laying the foundation for future growth and prosperity through infrastructure projects and economic development initiatives. He expresses optimism about India’s economic growth and envisions a bright future for Chhattisgarh as part of this progress.

Modi spoke about his government’s welfare schemes under which people are getting free rations, medical treatment, affordable medicines, housing, piped water, gas connection and toilets.

“Ten years ago, Modi had given the guarantee that we will create an India as per the dreams of our ancestors. Today, look all around, a new India is being built just like the dreams that our ancestors had seen. Did anyone think 10 years ago that digital payments could be done even in villages? Had anyone ever thought that a son who had gone to work outside would be able to send money to his family in the village? Today it has become possible,” he said.

Hitting out at the Congress, Modi referred to the statement by then PM Rajiv Gandhi about just 15 paise of every rupee being spent for development reaching the rightful beneficiary.

If the same situation prevailed today, one can imagine what would have happened to the nation, the PM said.

“In the last 10 years, the Centre transferred more than Rs 34 lakh crore into the bank accounts of citizens through Direct Benefit Transfer. Had the Congress been in power and had the 15 paise tradition continued, then Rs 29 lakh crore out of this Rs 34 lakh crore would have been embezzled by middlemen,” he said.

Throwing light on initiatives to create health and education facilities as well as infrastructure like roads and rail lines, the PM said development starts and employment opportunities get created once corruption comes to an end.
