A delegation of the Prajapati society called on the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Akhilesh Yadav at his official residence. Also present during the meeting was MP Mrs Dimple Yadav. The delegates apprised the Chief Minister of the problems faced by them in the professional endeavours and to try and sort them out.
The Chief Minister assured the visiting delegates that the state government would initiate all possible steps to improve their living standards and to ensure their welfare. Mr. Yadav also said that eligible members of the Prajapati society would be given pucca houses under the Lohia Housing Scheme and that their villages would be developed under the Janeshwar Mishra Gram Yojna.
State Government will formulate a policy to ensure availability of mud by providing lease for making of utensils, toys and artefacts, the Chief Minister informed the delegation. He also pointed out that the making of these toys et al has been part of the rich traditions and culture of the state but regretted that despite all this and despite the fact that such items were both eco-friendly and useful, they had been pushed to the side lines in the glamour of modern-day world, forcing the art on the verge of extinction and the people involved to penury.
In the wake of this, the Chief Minister urged the people of the state to use the earthen lamps and toys as much as was possible for them. The delegation included members of the Prajapati society from villages Sarosa-Bharosa and Kurauni of Lucknow, Mr. Shriram, Mr. Gangasagar, Mrs. Rakhi, Mr. Soorajbali, Mr. Suresh, Mr. Avadhram, Mr. Ram Babu and others.
