Bhupesh Baghel will launch two key schemes related to distribution of fortified rice and setting up of English medium schools on Sunday during ‘Rajyotsav’ statehood celebrations, an official said.

Former AICC chief and MP Rahul Gandhi will take part online in the first phase of the function from noon while state Governor Anusuiya Uikey will attend the next phase through video conferencing from 1:30 pm, an official said.

Chhattisgarh came into existence on November 1, 2000 after the bifurcation of Madhya Pradesh.

Unlike previous years, Rajyotsav is being held in two phases in a simple manner this year at the CM’s official residence due to the coronavirus outbreak, said the public relations department official.

“In the first phase, the CM will release the third installment of cash benefit under Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojna to 18.38 lakh farmers. He will also inaugurate Swami Atmanand Government English Medium School Scheme which aims at providing education in the language. Initially, 52 schools will be started,” he informed.
