Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel stated on Thursday that starting in the upcoming fiscal year, unemployed youngsters in the state will be awarded a monthly allowance. This is a significant declaration ahead of the Chhattisgarh Assembly elections scheduled for this year’s end. The action is perceived as an effort to counter the Bharatiya Janata Party’s persistent criticism of the Congress administration for breaking its 2018 pre-election promise to provide an unemployment benefit or stipend.
The focus on unemployment in the Congress’ electoral platform enabled them to retake power in Chhattisgarh after a 15-year absence.The criteria, amount, and budgetary allocation for the programme are now being worked out by the administration, according to sources, and a complete announcement will be made in the forthcoming state budget later this month.On the 74th Republic Day, the CM made the announcement while addressing the crowd at Jagdalpur’s Lalbag Parade grounds.
Government representatives are also researching the unemployment allowance concept from Rajasthan. Under the “Mukhyamantri Yuva Sambal Yojna,” the Rajasthani government has been providing jobless benefits from 2019. The state of Chhattisgarh is 26.2% in debt.
