He said the construction of 19,166 houses will change the lives of Sahariya families. The Chief Minister said the state government is a government of the poor, farmers and women, until they are all edified, I will not sit still. Chouhan said the government is committed to providing every poor person with a pucca house for which provision has also been made in the budget. He said that arrangements for cement and other materials should be made together for the houses to be built in such large numbers, so that the beneficiary can get the material cheaply and does not have to move to organize it. He also ordered the District Collector to make arrangements in this regard. The chief minister said the bricks should be purchased from self-help groups that make bricks, so that the groups also get benefits. Those who commit irregularities in this work will not be spared.
Chouhan congratulated the women of the self-help groups of the Aajeevika mission. He said the women in the group make good profits by producing soap, detergent, guava, herbs and spices. He also talked about their economic and social improvement by connecting needy women with the groups. Chouhan said financial assistance is given to those who run stores on
trails as part of the street vendor program. Along with this, the provision of special grades in the recruitment of police officers is envisaged for these tribal youths, who are physically strong and agile. Along with this, arrangements have been made to connect more and more young people to employment through job fairs in each district.
The Chief Minister said the youths are linked with employment by organizing vehicles to be used in the ‘Ration Aapke Gram’ Yojana. Responsibility for the distribution of the ration in each village under the program was also given to the tribal youth. He said steps would be taken to add needy families to the eligibility list for rations.
Chouhan said a 5 kg ration is given to poor families under ‘Pradhan Mantri Khaddyan Yojna’ and a 5 kg ration under ‘Mukhyamantri Annapurna Yojna’ at 1 Re per kg. The state government will not sleep hungry to any poor.
