Interests of cane growers

accorded top priority by state government
— Chief Minister

Raw sugar will not be imported in U.P.
until cane crushing is totally completed
— Mayawat

Lucknow: 12 January 2010

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Ms. Mayawati said that the interests
of the farmers had been accorded top priority by the state government.
Keeping this in view, it had been decided that the raw sugar would not be
imported in U.P. until the crushing of cane is fully completed. She said that
all the farmers of the state had supported the decision of the state
government. She said that the state government had taken this decision in
favour of the consumer as well.

It may be recalled that the Union Agriculture Minister had requested
the state government to restart the import of raw sugar, but the state
government, keeping in view interests of the cane growers, had requested
the Central Government that the import of raw sugar was not suitable in
the state. The import of raw sugar may ignite unrest among the cane
growers and it may create few other problems as well.

Ms. Mayawati said that the state government was fully aware and
sensitive towards the cane growers. The officers had been directed from
time to time to solve the matters related with the interests of the cane
growers in an effective manner, she pointed out. Besides, all the divisional
Commissioners had already been directed to coordinate with ganna vikas
samitis/ganna kisan pratinidhis and sugar mills, so that the cane growers
were provided facilities and were also given impetus besides the state
advisory price. Following these orders, the cane growers were being
provided various facilities.

Lucknow : Plans to launch new scheme for those without BPL cards
The latest entrants to Chief Minister Mayawati’s birthday party are
those who do not have the below poverty level (BPL) cards.

On January 15, her birthday, Mayawati is likely to announce a new
scheme for this section — one that will entail financial help through
cash doles. The scheme is to be named “Uttar Pradesh Mukhya Mantri
Mahamaya Garib Arthik Sahayata Yojana”.

Officials are busy working out the details, but sources said a few
things have already been settled. Each family will get Rs 300 per
month, 50 per cent of the beneficiaries will be Scheduled Castes and
Scheduled Tribes, and families headed by women will get preference.
Only families which do not get the benefit of any existing scheme for
the poor will be entitled to avail this scheme.

Sources said the idea was to launch the state’s own pro-poor
initiatives which reaches out to those who do not get any benefit from
existing schemes like old-age or widow pension and antyodaya. Almost
all existing schemes are funded by the Centre and in each a BPL card
is the ticket to the benefits.

The state government has made several requests to the Centre to
increase allocations for various pro-poor schemes, arguing that
surveys of BPL families were faulty and did not reflect the correct
picture.

“The Union government has not paid any attention to these requests. As
a result, a large number of poor people do not get any benefit because
their names do not figure on the BPL list,” said an official.

The new scheme is expected to serve two purposes. It will help the
chief minister counter the Congress which has been trying to get
political mileage out of all pro-poor schemes by telling the people
they were being financed by the Centre and that the state was just
implementing them.

Besides, it is expected to build pressure on the Centre to accept the
state’s figure of poor families and increase allocation to various
schemes.

An official said the survey to identify beneficiary families under the
new scheme will be completed in four to five months. However, the
government is yet to identify the department that will conduct the
survey.

One option in consideration is to identify the beneficiaries in open
meetings of the gram sabha.
Mayawati offers Rs.5 crore to Indian hockey team
January 14th, 2010 - 3:35 pm ICT by IANS  -
Lucknow, Jan 14 (IANS) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati Thursday
offered Rs.5 crore to the Indian hockey team, along with a sponsorship
for the next two years, a day after the crisis between the players and
Hockey India ended.
The players had marched out of the preparatory camp in Pune for this
year’s World Cup over non payment of dues.

“Besides giving a sum of Rs.5 crore to the Indian hockey team, we are
also ready to take care of the sponsorship of the team for the next
two years,” Mayawati said here.

“I am doing it for my love for sports and I cannot see our national
team losing their morale simply for want of finances, when they should
be preparing for the World Cup to make the nation proud,” she added.

This is said to be a gift to the hockey players by the UP CM on her

54th birthday this January 15.



Sources said that UP government has also offered to hand over the


money as a sponsor for next two years.




The announcement from Mayawati should come as a great help to warring


sporting authorities over payment to players.
