Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday said that one lakh quintals of cow dung has been purchased from cow dung vendors under the Godhan Nyaya Yojana and Rs 201 crore has been paid to them so far. About 80,000 women are also getting employment by producing vermicompost from cow dung. Chhattisgarh is the first state in the country where cow dung is being procured. Godhan Nyaya Yojana has become a medium of social and economic change in the villages.
He was addressing the villagers during the Bhent-Mulaqat programme organized at village Math of Dharsiwa assembly constituency of Raipur district today.
Chief Minister said that he has come here to know whether the locals are getting the benefit of the public welfare schemes of the state government. Today, the Bhent-Mulaqat programme in Raipur district is starting from Dharsiwa assembly constituency. Chief Minister Shri Baghel said that we have formulated plans for all sections. First of all, we have waived off the loans of the farmers. He added that along with paddy, we are also buying Kodo, Kutki at the support price. Chhattisgarh ranks second after Punjab in paddy procurement in the country with 103 lakh metric tonnes of paddy procured so far in the state. About 23 lakh farmers in Chhattisgarh have been benefited by selling paddy. Earlier only 15 lakh farmers used to sell paddy and the area under paddy was 22 lakh hectare, which has also increased now.
Dharsiwa MLA Smt. Anita Yogendra Sharma, President of Mineral Development Corporation Shri Girish Dewangan, along with many public representatives, a large number of villagers and officers were present on the occasion.
Stating the practical problems arising in the production of ethanol from paddy, Chief Minister said that the state government wants to buy huge quantities for this purpose. Permission has not been received for the same from the central government and the rate of ethanol produced from paddy has not been fixed. He added that the plant for making ethanol from sugarcane is about to start in Kawardha. Maize to ethanol plant will also start in Kondagaon in June. If the central government gives permission, we will buy each and every grain of paddy from the farmers.
On this occasion, he made several announcements including opening of Swami Atmanand English Medium School in Gram Panchayat Ganiyari, Primary Health Center in Gram Panchayat Marhi and Jara-Kumhari and opening of District Cooperative Bank branch in village Saragaon.
