The poor beneficiaries are not able to receive the widow pension, divyang jan pension etc.
The scheduled caste students are also not getting the education scholarship during this Covid-19 pandemic period due to which the colleges are removing their names for their institutions. The social welfare department has also stopped the release of funds for the marriages of the daughters of widowed women resulting in unnecessary harassment.

After immense pressure from our Party a 25 bed covid centre was opened but that too without any facility for the Covid patients. He alleged that the patients are not given even paracetamol which is being purchased by them from outside the centre.
