Inaugurating the 55th All India Cooperative Week celebrations – 2008 at Nagaraja temple auditorium here on Wednesday, the Minister said that the Government has allotted a sum of Rs.30 lakh to set up a ‘sizing’ unit in the district to impart training to the weaving community.

The Government had been implementing various welfare and development schemes for the benefit of the poor and down-trodden. Steps have already been taken to implement various pending schemes in the State.

The Government was exploring the ways and means to implement a pension scheme for the employees of fair price shops. Part-time fair price shops have already been opened in different parts of the State, so that villagers could get essential commodities at their doorsteps.

As demanded by the people, a Siddha college would be set up in the district as it was bestowed with traditional ‘vaidyars and asans’.
