In yet another generous gesture, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel provided Muskan with Rs 2 lakh in research funding after she requested it during his Bhent-Mulaqat Abhiyan. She had no idea that one day, the Chief Minister would come to her house and grant her long-awaited wish in just minutes of interaction.
Hailing from an economically weaker family, Muskan said, “After completing my BSc in Mathematics, I wanted to get into the research field and go out of state for my higher studies. However, I always hesitated to speak about the same to my family because of our weak financial condition. I took tuitions as well to support my family.”
While interacting with Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel at his Bhent-Mulaqat programme held at Dharamjaigarh, Muskan expressed her wish to go to Banglore for further studies besides sharing the financial struggles of the family. She stated that she needs coaching for this but can’t due to financial constraints.
After hearing her request, CM immediately asked her how much aid do you need. “Can’t tell exact amount or even estimate”, the girl said. Chief Minister quipped and said, “If you are talking to a Chief Minister without an estimate then how will I be able to give you the amount.” The girl got silent for a minute with a sad face but was all smiles when he announced to give a financial aid of Rs 2 lakh from his discretionary fund. She expressed her gratitude to Chief Minister for his help. The locals there applauded Chief Minister after this announcement.
