MP: All Schemes Run By Previous Govt To Continue In State, Says CM Mohan Yadav; House Adjourned Sine Die |

Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav on Thursday said that all schemes that were being run by the previous government will continue in the state, a day after women-centric 'Ladli Behna' programme did not find mention in the governor's address to the newly constituted assembly.

The four-day-long first session of MP's 16th assembly concluded on Thursday and it was adjourned sine die (indefinitely).

"All schemes from 'Ladli Laxmi' to others being run by the previous government will continue and funds will be transferred to beneficiaries' accounts on the due date," Yadav said in reply to the thanksgiving motion moved by the senior BJP MLA Kailash Vijayvargiya after the Governor Mangubhai Patel's address to the house on Wednesday.

However, when leader of opposition Umang Singhar specifically asked about Ladli Behna Yojana, Yadav said all schemes would continue.

Former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's flagship scheme Ladli Behna provides Rs 1,250 per month financial assistance to eligible women and in the run-up to the November 17 assembly polls, the ruling BJP had promised to raise the amount to Rs 3,000 in a gradual manner.

Addressing the first session of the newly constituted assembly, Patel on Wednesday listed various central and state welfare schemes, but did not mention Ladli Behna Yojana.

Citing the governor's address, Congress members, including senior MLA Ramniwas Rawat and former minister Jaivardhan Singh, on Thursday demanded that CM Yadav clarify the status of the Ladli Behna scheme.

All schemes will continue, said CM Yadav.

Congress failed to implement SC directives

Referring to the implementation of the Supreme Court order on fixing decibel levels for loudspeakers installed at religious places, Yadav said his government has just implemented the directives of the apex court which the erstwhile Congress government had "failed to do so".

Hours after being appointed as the CM, Yadav last week issued a directive prohibiting the use of loudspeakers at religious places beyond permissible decibel levels.

After completing the listed business of the day, Speaker Narendra Singh Tomar adjourned the house sine die.
