Over three crore people visited ‘Duare Sarkar’ camps in West Bengal: Mamata Banerjee
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has tweeted that over three crore people have visited the ongoing “Duare Sarkar” camps till now.
The second edition of the “Duare Sarkar” (government at doorsteps) programme was launched on 16 August and will continue till 15 September.
She thanked people of the state for visiting the camps and also congratulated the government officials.
“Extremely happy to share that more than 3 crore people have visited the #DuareSarkar camps since 16 August. I congratulate all GoWB officials for making this initiative a huge success. I thank the people of Bengal for coming to the camps and availing all benefits,” Banerjee said on Twitter.
Two government schemes — ”Lakshmi Bhandar” and “Swasthya Sathi” — appeared to be the top picks among the three crore people who have turned up in the month-long camps.
The West Bengal government has launched “Lakshmi Bhandar” scheme in order to provide basic income support to female heads of families. The newly floated programme assures monthly assistance of Rs 1,000 for women of each SC/ST household and Rs 500 for the general category. ”Swasthya Sathi” is a cashless basic health cover for secondary and tertiary care up to Rs 5 lakh per annum per family
