Holding on to their promise of progress for everyone, the Uttar Pradesh government has announced monetary assistance to financially weak families of minority communities in the state for their daughters’ wedding.
Under a scheme to be run jointly by the Central government and the Yogi Adityanath-led state government, mass weddings for minority communities will also be organized. 100 mass weddings will be arranged at “Sadbhavna Mandaps” in different districts across the state.
Minister of State for Minorities Affairs, Mohsin Raza, told PTI
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has given his consent to mass wedding of poor girls belonging to minority communities and we have included it in the 100 days’ program of the state government
The government aims to make these weddings a bi-annual thing if the scheme receives a good response.
