Mumbai: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday distributed financial assistance to the beneficiaries of ‘Naveen Rojgar Chatri Yojna’ and ‘Pandit Deendayal Swarojgar Yojana’ through online transactions.
Yogi Adityanath said, “I want to congratulate these beneficiaries. As you all know, we are fighting a battle against COVID-19 epidemic. People all over the world have been financially affected due to the virus.”
“In the near future, we will aim to bring 10 lakh families belonging to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes under the schemes of the state government. Once we will be able to make these communities financially independent, then only we can pave the way for the eradication of social inequality,” he added.
