Team Absolute|Bhopal Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Madhya Pradesh government considers welfare of the poor as paramount. A practical scheme like Sambal which supports the needy and poor through equitable distribution of resources, was discontinued by the former government. The implementation of the Sambal Yojana, which provides financial assistance from the period before birth to conditions of to untimely death, will now continue. Chouhan transferred ex-gratia amount of Rs 80 crores to the account of 3700 beneficiaries of Sambal Yojana in a programme organized at Minto Hall Bhopal on Wednesday. Chouhan said that Sambal is a scheme of equitable distribution of resources. This scheme has become a great support for the poor. Chouhan said that the former government had also snatched the morsel from the mouth. Pregnant women were denied laddoos which were to provide them nutrition. The plan was discontinued at the behest of the former government. Chouhan said that everyone will get a concrete house in the coming three years. The Chief Minister told the beneficiaries about the benefits of Sambal Yojana and assured them that people should not worry. This scheme will continue and you all will continue to reap benefits from it. Chouhan said that those who have been deprived of the benefits of the scheme at present will also be benefited. The migrant labourers who returned to the state during Covid-19 will also be linked with Sambal. These labourers will also be benefited by connecting them with the Bhavan Sannirman Karmakar Mandal. Free education will be arranged for the children of these labourers. Chouhan said that it is true that whenever a sad incident occurs in a family, people extend sympathies for some time. But the real pain is experienced only by the one who is suffering. Such people should get financial assistance from the government. Chouhan said that lack of funds will not be allowed to come in the way of implementation of the scheme of the poor. Chouhan said that the beneficiaries who have got the benefit of the scheme today will be able to become self-reliant.
