The central government is providing financial assistance to the women under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Antyodaya Yojana with the aim to make them self-employed. However, the state government has been stealing the projects, Samantsinghar alleged.

The members of SHG are being forcibly involved in all kinds of party activities by making various false promises to join political parties. The Self-help groups are being abused as “Women’s forces of BJD,” the BJP leader claimed.

She further alleged that the master book keepers (MBK), Community Resource Persons (CRPs), Block Project Manager, District Project Manager are being put in the work of collecting votes and despite so much grant from the central government, the state government has never thanked or appreciated it, rather calling the central projects as its own projects.
