Common service centers don saffron tones in Jind

JIND: There has been no official notification, but (CSC) are being painted slowly. The centers provide one-point facilities for the provision of the Center's multiple electronic services in rural and remote areas.

Each town has a CSC to provide facilities related to a permanent account number, Aadhaar card, income services, public welfare plans and related services with about 40 departments in the state at a time. The Jind district has 480 CSCs, of which 300 are in villages, and about four have already been painted in saffron.

Haryana IT project manager for CSC, Prabhjot Singh, said work is underway to paint all the state's service centers in saffron. The project is being implemented in the four common service centers of Lakh throughout India.

Describing it as an initiative to establish a different identity for these centers, the CSC district manager, Kuldeep Singh, said: We have received verbal instructions from the higher authorities to paint these places of saffron.

Local Congress official and former Jind segment party candidate, Parmod Sehwag alleged that BJP was trying to impose a particular ideology on people through these service centers. BJP is testing 'bhagvakaran' (saffron) in places frequented by ordinary people. If the party wants to show patriotism, it should have hoisted a Tricolor instead of painting these saffron centers, he said.

Congressional leader and former deputy Depend on Singh Hooda He said: BJP's culture has been to politicize institutions either by changing their names or painting them with saffron. They must know that the nation comes first.
