Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday said the feedback given by voluntary organisations, social workers and the civil society has an important role in the implementation of government schemes and policies at grassroots level.

The chief minister was addressing a pre-budget interactive session with voluntary organisations and consumer forums here.

He said it was an effort of his government to include important suggestions of various social organisations in the preparation of the public welfare budget so that the benefits of the budget can reach every section of the society.

The chief minister said the state government has always paid attention to the suggestions of voluntary organisations and social workers on issues related to public interest.

He said the suggestions made by voluntary organisations have been instrumental in formulating laws like Right to Information, Food Security Act and Right to Education.

Gehlot said the role of NGOs and social workers is important to creating harmony in the society.

Energy Minister B D Kalla, Health Minister Raghu Sharma, Food and Civil Supplies Minister Ramesh Meena, Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas and Minister of State for Education Govind Singh Dotasara among others attended the meeting.
