Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Chief Minister Mohan Yadav transferred Rs 1576.61 crore directly into bank accounts of 1.29 crore women under Mukhyamatri Ladli Behna Yojana on Wednesday.

After Yadav took charge as the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, there were rumours that former CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan's flagship programme 'Ladli Behna Yojana' will be discontinued.

Putting end to the myths, Yadav transferred the fund at a grand event held in Bhopal's Kushabhau Thakre Convention Center today.

The state has declared to celebrate Women Empowerment Week between January 10 to 15. Throughout the week, special events will honour Ladli Lakshmi-friendly Gram Panchayats, accomplished girls in competitive exams, and exceptional members of Shaurya Dal. Recognition will also be extended to girls who have played a role in preventing child marriages.

Former Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan initiated the Ladli Behna Yojana, a scheme transferring Rs 1000 to the accounts of Ladli Behnas every 10th of the month. Today, on January 10, 2024, marks one such transfer under the scheme, providing financial support to the beneficiaries as part of the Women Empowerment Week.

Expressing his commitment to women's empowerment, Chouhan stated that making Ladli Behnas prosperous is a mission close to his heart. He conveyed his heartfelt wishes on X to all the Ladli Behnas and encouraged them to become financially independent.
