Karnataka govt to roll out ‘Gruha Lakshmi’ scheme; Kharge, Rahul Gandhi to attend event

The Karnataka government will launch the "Gruha Lakshmi" program; Kharge and Rahul Gandhi will be present


Congress-ruled The “Gruha Lakshmi” scheme, one of five election promises made by the Congress during its election campaign, will be implemented by the Karnataka government on Wednesday. The launch of this program will take place in Mysuru in front of senior party officials and state chief minister Siddaramiah. Rahul Gandhi, a former leader of the Congress, will be in Mysuru for the scheme’s launch event alongside Congressman Mallikarjun Kharge. According to the plan, the state government will give BPL families’ female heads of household Rs 2,000 per month in assistance.

According to KC Venugopal, Congress General Secretary, it will be the “world’s largest-ever welfare scheme for women”.
“Through this revolutionary scheme, the Karnataka government led by Siddaramiah will be distributing Rs 2000 to 1.28 crore women. When Women are empowered-India is stronger,” he said in a post on X.
1.28 crore female family heads in Karnataka are expected to receive this financial aid deposited directly into their bank accounts from today.
Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said that his government has the political will to implement five guarantees that were promised to the people in the state by Congress.
The Karnataka CM had said that the five schemes will cost the state exchequer approximately Rs 50,000 crore every year.
Earlier Congress during its poll campaign in Karnataka this year had announced the five main guarantees to the people of Karnataka.
