After the Congress government is formed again in Chhattisgarh, women in the state will be provided an annual assistance of Rs 15,000 into their bank accounts under the Chhattisgarh Gruha Lakshmi Yojana,” he said. The CM also wished people of the state on Deepavali . The first phase of polling in 20 out of the total 90 assembly seats in the state was held on November 7. The remaining 70 seats will see voting on November 17.
