Chief Minister Shri Chouhan today launched from Mantralaya a new system of payment by transferring Rs 21 crore 97 lakh 80 thousand by a single click to the accounts of 2 lakh 19 thousand women under the Dietary Grant Scheme.

I miss the taste of Baigachak ki bhaji

Talking to tribal women through video conference, Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that I still remember the taste of Baigachak ki bhaji. When I went there, I ate the bhaji made by a Baiga woman. Baigas are amazingly sensitive. They do not use the plough because they believe it can hurt Mother Earth. The clean houses of Bharia tribe are attractive. Sahariya tribe is a very brave tribe that resides with the lion.

Educate children, Mama stands with you

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that tribal women should educate their children. Their Mama will make arrangements for their studies. Along with this, the government is also arranging for their food, clothing and shelter etc.

Will you serve me roti?

Tribal woman Baikunthi of Manpur-Morena was too happy when the Chief Minister asked her, “when I come to your house, will you serve me roti?” She said, “Brother, I will prepare food, come soon. After receiving the amount, Ramkali Devi of Shivpuri, said to Minister Smt. Meena Singh and Chief Minister “Thank you Madam Minister”.

Those who have been left out should be added

The Chief Minister directed all the collectors to immediately add the names of those women from Special Backward Castes who were left out in the scheme. Also, action should be taken in respect of those who are homeless.

Why to worry as our brother is here

When the Chief Minister asked Ashoknagar's Paunabai whether she was worried about anything, she said that now her brother has come why to worry then. When you were not there, we stopped getting money. The Chief Minister assured that now everyone will get their money in time.

Now one does not have to go to the forest to fetch wood for fuel
