Lucknow/UNI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the Garib Kalyan Rojgar Yojana in Uttar Pradesh on June 26 to provide employment to 1.25 crore people, mostly migrant workers.

The PM will launch the scheme through video conferencing from New Delhi.
 
Official sources here on Wednesday said the PM will also interact with some workers and artisans, in presence of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, to know their experience and the help extended by the state government during their return from other states. 

Workers, including several women, of six districts of Gorakhpur, Jalaun, Meerut, Sant Kabir Nagar and other districts have been selected to interact with PM virtually.

Meanwhile, the CM held a meeting with the officials concerned  here today to review the preparation for the programme. State Rural Development and Panchayatiraj departments have been made the nodal agency for this scheme.

UP created a record when over 3 million migrant workers and their families returned to the state during the lockdown.
