Shah expresses gratitude to PM Modi for extending PMGKAY till November

New Delhi, Jul 8 (UNI) Hailing the Union Cabinet's decision to extend the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY) till November, the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah has said the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to ensure nobody stays hungry during the Corona disaster is praiseworthy.
Taking to twitter, he said “During the early days of Corona crisis, Prime Minister had taken the decision to provide three free cylinders to poor women for three months under the Ujjwala Yojana. Many families could not fully avail the three cylinders as a result of which the scheme was extended till September”. “This would benefit 7 crore and 40 lakh women,” he added.

Appreciating the Cabinet approval for the ‘Affordable Rental Housing Complex’ for urban migrants under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Mr Shah said that PMAY flats built in cities will be available to the migrant labourers at cheaper rent and this move will further strengthen the goal of ‘Housing for All’.
“By re-emphasizing his commitment to the mantra of 'Sabka Saath, Sabka Vishwas', the Prime Minister has extended another very important scheme which caters to the cause of small businesses”, the Home Minister said in another tweet, adding that the contribution in the EPF account has been extended till August which will be benefiting about 72 lakh people of small businesses.
Mr Shah also said the Cabinet approval of Rs.1,00,000 crore 'Agriculture Infrastructure Fund' will strengthen the Agriculture sector and this decision reflects Modi ji’s commitment for all-round development of rural India. It will provide a big momentum to the development of rural infrastructure.
