Latehar(Jharkhand), Jul 10 (PTI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today said the state government never intends to take land of the poor, rather rules have been made to give them their rights.

But, the intention of the opposition, he said, is to misinform and misguide innocent tribals and make them spend their lives in huts and take political mileage by creating a vote bank.

“But our government will never allow the opposition’s intention to be fulfilled,” the chief minister said.

Das was addressing representatives of the Schedule Tribe Divisional Convention here, an official release said.

The chief minister said his government’s objective is to bring schemes to the ground and make lives of the poor prosperous.

He said participation of common people is necessary to take the schemes to the last person (of the society).

Keeping the interest of all round development of the tribal society, schemes are being made, so that they can be freed from poverty, Das said.

Das said teachers will be recruited in every school and medical and engineering colleges will be set up for children from poor families through Mukya Mantri Sahayata Yojana, the release added.
