Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday visited Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh and inaugurated and laid foundation stones of Rs 7,550 crore development projects for the state.
He also disbursed monthly installments to nearly two lakh women beneficiaries of the state’s ‘Aahar Anudan Yojana’.
Under the scheme, Rs 1,500 per month for nutritious food is provided to women, especially from backward tribes.
Prime Minister Modi also distributed 1.75 lakh ‘adhikar abhilekh’ (land rights record) under the SVAMITVA scheme, which will provide documentary evidence to people of the right to their land.
He also laid the foundation stone of Tantya Mama Bhil University, which will cater to the youth of the tribal-dominated districts of the state.
The university, which will be developed at a cost of Rs 170 crore, will provide world-class infrastructure for the all-round development of students.
