Government’s responsibility to remove poverty: Mukherjee

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday said removing poverty and destitution from India was the “sacred responsibility” of the Indian government.

“Removing poverty and destitution is our most sacred responsibility. My government has launched three new social security and pension schemes and focused on the welfare of poors, farmers and jobs for the youth,” said Mukherjee.

“My government is placed in making this goal possible through financial inclusion and social security,” he added.

Mukherjee was addressing the parliamentarians of both the houses — Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha — in a joint sitting ahead of the commencement of the budget session.

He said: “The development philosophy of the government was ‘Sabka saath, Sabka vikas’. My government in particular is focussed on ‘Garibon Ki Unnati’, ‘Kisano Ki Samridhi’ and ‘Yuvaon Ka Rozgar”.

He said that the government was for the welfare of the farmers, who were a vital part for the nation’s prosperity.

“Well being of farmers is vital to the nation’s prosperity,” Mukherjee said.
