This has helped limit the number of Corona victims in the state. Till date, 7 people have been affected by Corona Vasaras in the state, their condition is also normal. Fortunately, no coronation victims have died in the state.

The positive initiatives taken by the central government need to be continued, as a large section of the society is still deprived of the benefits from those announcements. In particular, the landless laborers and workers in the unorganized sector, who are covered under the "MNREGA" scheme, are bound to have a living in the present circumstances.
Mr. Baghel said that in addition to the announcements made by the Union Finance Minister, some of my suggestions are as follows: - The workers of MNREGA and unorganized sector should be transferred a sum of one thousand per month for the next three months. The amount of Rs 750 per month should be transferred to all Jan Dhan account holders in their accounts for the next 3 months. This includes women, men, zero balance or obsolete accounts.
Along with this, Mr. Baghel requested that all the workers of the organized sector, who receive less than 15 thousand per month, should bear the entire amount of their provident fund for the next three months by the Central Government and do not have any preconditions in it. is. Shri Bhupesh Baghel has told the Prime Minister that if approval is given as suggested above, only then we can succeed in winning the war waged against Corona, otherwise the crisis of life is sure to arise for millions of families. The Chief Minister has made a humble request to the Prime Minister to take the pain of granting the acceptance of these demands as soon as possible so that these sections can get great relief.
