CM Vishnu Deo Sai’s address to the public on the occasion of Mahtari Vandan Yojana first installment disbursement

Raipur ( | Chief Minister expressed gratitude towards the Prime Minister for dedicating his time to launch the Mahtari Vandan Yojana, stating, “The day for which these women were eagerly waiting has arrived today. Our visionary Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji, had pledged that if our government were formed in Chhattisgarh, we would initiate this scheme. Today, the first installment is being transferred to the bank accounts of 70 lakh 12 thousand 600 women.”

Chief Minister mentioned that our Sanatan tradition states, “Yatra Naryastu Pujyante Ramante Tatra Devta,” which implies that where women are accorded respect, even deities prefer to reside, and where they are not respected, all endeavors remain fruitless. This adage is reflected in the Mahtari Vandan Yojana. This bold step towards women empowerment represents a significant stride towards realizing the aspirations of half the population of Chhattisgarh.

Addressing the women power of the state, Chief Minister stated “You embody Shakti. You are the nation’s builders. Your contribution is invaluable, and this scheme is a humble tribute to all you powerful women. Modi ji has envisioned the creation of a ‘Viksit Bharat’ for the nation. To achieve this, it is important to build a developed Chhattisgarh. The stronger you all are, the stronger our country and state will become.”

He further added, “Today, there is a dual-engine government in the state, and with the support of Modi ji, our strength has doubled as well. This momentum must be sustained. Modi ji is going to serve as the Prime Minister for a third term. All you strong women must strengthen the country and the state by lending him your support.”
