DMF के उपयोग में कैसे हुआ अमूलचुर परिवर्तन, अब शहरों में नहीं

रायपुर मुनादी | July 09, 2019

अमूमन राजनीतिज्ञ चुनाव के दौरान किये गए वादे नहीं निभाते हैं खासकर जब मामला उद्योगों से प्रभावित लोगों की बात हो। छत्तीसगढ़ अपने उदय के साथ ही उद्योगों का चारागाह बन गया था खासकर रायगढ़, कोरबा, कोरिया, चिरमिरी, बस्तर जैसे तमाम जिले उद्योगों के दिये विकास के दर्द से कराह रहे थे। आम आदमी के लिए बनने वाली योजनाएं भी आम आदमी तक नहीं पहुँच पाती थी।

इनकी बात विपक्ष के तौर पर कांग्रेस करती रही थी लेकिन सत्ता में आने के बाद भूपेश बघेल ने जैसे ही सत्ता संभाली उन्होंने DMF के नियमों में वैसा ही बदलाव कर दिया जैसा जनसंगठन बहुत पहले से कहते रहे। पहले DMF (खनिज न्यास निधि) का उपयोग सभी सरकारी कार्यों के लिए कर दिया जाता था जबकि प्रभावित गांव मुंह ताकते रहते थे। DMF का उपयोग सरकारी बंगले से लेकर पार्क बनाने तक में उपयोग किया जा रहा था जबकि जनसंगठनों की हमेशा से मांग रही थी कि DMF का ज्यादातर हिस्सा प्रभावित गांव में खर्च किया जाय। पिछले साल सराइटोली गांव में जब भूपेश बघेल गए थे तब उन्होंने सरकार आने पर DMF के लिए कहा था कि इसमें परिवर्तन किया जाएगा। रायगढ़ के सामाजिक कार्यकर्ता राजेश त्रिपाठी और सविता रथ द्वारा सुझाये गए के बातों को नए संशोधन में जगह दी गई है। Read more
