Panaji: Goa government on Wednesday announced release of Rs 45.29 crore to clear one month pending amount for the beneficiaries of two social welfare schemes covering senior citizens and housewives.

Chief Minister Pramod Sawant took on to twitter to declare that the government has released funds to clear one month’s pending amount under Dayanand Special Security Scheme (covering senior citizens) and Griha Adhar (hosewives).

Sawant said that the amount has been released “despite financial constraints.”

The Chief Minister tweeted “Despite financial constraints, our Government has decided to release Rs 45.29 crore as one month’s pending assistance to the beneficiaries of DSSY and Griha Adhar schemes.”

“The beneficiaries of DSSY will receive their benefits for the month of June (2020), while those of Griha Adhar will receive the benefits for the month of April  (2020).Our government reiterates its commitment to Social Welfare Schemes,” he tweeted.

In yet another tweet, Sawant said “sensing that we will release the amount tomorrow, the Congress party is playing cheap stunts to gain mileage on this issue, as if it is their achievement.

The Congress workers on Wednesday evening had protested in the office of Social Welfare Department demanding the release of funds under DSSY and Griha Adhar scheme.
