Chhattisgarh is facing yet another crisis of exodus.  Entire families have left for greener pastures for want of work, in spite of the central government’s rural job scheme in place and availability of rice at Re.1 a kilo.

“We (55 labourers and 15 children) are leaving for Faizabad (in Uttar Pradesh) where we will make bricks. The payment is Rs.400 for 1,000 bricks. Two labourers can make 1,000 bricks in a day. We will come back after working for six months there,” Kans Nishad of Baloda Bazar said at the Raipur railway station.

According to government statistics, 95,324 people have left their homes in the last three years. A substantial part of the migration – 29,190 – took place from Janjgir-Champa district.

“People living below the poverty line are not getting jobs in spite of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Scheme (MNREGS) being operational in the state,” quoted news agency IANS.

The migrants have taken up odd jobs as construction workers of roads, houses in states like moved to Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jammu and Kashmir and Madhya Pradesh.

Workers have not received any employment under MNREGS for last nine months and some have not been paid for the past 6 to 10 months.

The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.

The order was one of the promises of CM Yogi Adityanath to make his vision of modern madarsa true. Earlier, he had rejected the demand of shutting down of Madarsas stating that it will not help eradicate the basic problems and he further gave a view of modernized madarsa by including modern subjects. The recommendation, made on 15th May, also stated to follow the syllabus and books of NCERT. The suggestions were accepted by the cabinet on 22 May.
