Chhattisgarh Legislative Assembly  gave its approval to the state government for the second supplementary budget of Rs. 12992.70 crore for the financial year 2023–24.


Chief Minister Mr. Vishnu Deo Sai gave a reply in the House over the discussion of the supplementary budget and outlined the plans to fulfil promises from the party's manifesto through a forthcoming supplementary budget. He shared that his father passed away at the age of 10. He assured the youth of the state that he would tirelessly work for their well-being, akin to a father and guardian. He pledged to stand as a brother for the safety and prosperity of the state's sisters. He also emphasised his commitment to provide the better health services and facilities for all elders. He expressed gratitude for the overwhelming public support and vowed to dedicate himself entirely to the betterment of every citizen in Chhattisgarh.


The Chief Minister expressed gratitude to the people of Chhattisgarh for showing confidence in Modi's guarantee and gave him the chance to serve 'Chhattisgarh Mahatari'. He shared that, upon taking office as Chief Minister, he immediately initiated the process to implement Modi's guarantee.


Chief Minister Mr. Sai stated, "The previous government had presented a budget of more than Rs 1.21 lakh crore; big promises were made about various schemes; but the previous government did not make appropriate efforts to generate sufficient revenue. The result was that in the last five years, the previous government took huge loans to meet budgetary expenses". "When we handed over the treasury to the new government in the year 2018, the state had a total debt of Rs. 41,695 crores. In a period of just five years, this amount of loan increased to Rs 91,533 crore. In this way, the previous government took a loan of Rs 50 thousand crore in five years. Despite the treasury's difficult financial situation, our government is determined to fulfil each and every promise of Modi's guarantee", he added.



The Chief Minister Mr. Vishnu Deo Sai, hailing from a poor family background, empathised with the plight of the poor. Acknowledging the dream of owning a house for the impoverished, he highlighted the challenges faced by those cooking outdoors. He shared that Prime Minister Mr. Modi  has committed to provide houses to every poor person, and following his vision, the state government will provide houses to every poor person in the state.



The Chief Minister criticised the previous government and accused them of failing to deliver on their 2018 public manifesto promises for rural and urban housing. He alleged that instead of fulfilling the commitments, they deprived the people to take benefits of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. He criticised the inadequate support of the previous government, which led many to deprive themselves of schemes and many to be forced to complete homes with loans after starting construction with a single installment.



In a significant move, the Chhattisgarh Government, under Modi's guarantee, has approved the construction of 18 lakh permanent houses for rural families as part of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. The first cabinet decision allocates a substantial Rs 3,799 crore in the supplementary budget to provide the initial installment for constructing these houses. This initiative aims not only to fulfil promises but also to commence house construction activities, thereby boosting the state's economy.


Chief Minister shared the visionary contributions of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who understood the challenges faced by the people of Chhattisgarh, leading to the creation of the state for progress and prosperity. The state government aspires to realise these dreams through the supplementary budget. Additionally, addressing another key promise in Modi's guarantee, a provision of Rs 3800 crore has been allocated to provide the two years' pending paddy bonus to farmers. On the occasion of Good Governance Day, December 25, the pending bonus amount to over 13 lakh farmers will be disbursed directly into their accounts.


To fulfil the promise of economic independence for women under Modi's guarantee, the Chief Minister announced the Mahatari Vandan Yojana with a dedicated allocation of Rs 1200 crore in the supplementary budget. Fulfilling the commitment to provide tap water to every household, the Jal Jeevan Mission aims to supply clean drinking water to approximately 50 lakh rural families through domestic tap connections. To expedite the mission's completion, the supplementary budget of Rs 1230 crore was allocated as the state's share.



Chief Minister Mr. Sai highlighted the success of the Krishak Jeevan Jyoti Yojana, providing 6000 units of free electricity to pumps up to 3 horsepower and 7500 units to those of 3 to 5 horsepower, benefiting 6 lakh 93 thousand farmers. Despite an initial allocation of Rs 3200 crore, the scheme faced funding shortages. An amount of Rs 1123 crore has been allocated in the supplementary budget for this. Addressing the inadequacy in social security pension provisions, an additional Rs 307 crore has been allocated to ensure monthly support for the elderly, divyangjan, widows, and abandoned women.



In a bid to enhance healthcare accessibility, the state government has allocated an additional Rs 255.25 crore for the National Health Mission. Responding to environmental concerns, Rs 250 crore has been allocated in the supplementary budget, in compliance with the National Green Tribunal's directive, for establishing sewage treatment plants to curb pollution in rivers and drains. Recognising the sensitivity of the Naxal issue, a crucial aspect of citizens' safety, the supplementary budget allocates Rs 150 crore to the Special Infrastructure Scheme. This fund is designated for constructing and upgrading police stations and outposts in Naxal-affected areas.
