CHIEF MINISTER Mulayam Singh Yadav said here on Saturday that the government would raise the stipend of teachers, imparting vocational training, from Rs 1500 per month to Rs 3000.

Addressing the state conference of Vyavasayaik Shikshak Sangh on the Ekaroanand Inter college campus, he said that the UPA Government had terminated the scheme to give stipend to the teachers imparting vocational training. He also said that the State Government had decided to encourage the teachers imparting vocational training and declared that such teachers would get Rs. 3,000 per month instead of Rs 1500.

The CM further said that he would constitute a committee to work out a plan to give more financial aid to Shiksha Mitras who also deserved a raise in their salary, he added.

He said that the Centre was importing poor quality of wheat from Australia. He accused the Centre of permitting foreign companies to purchase wheat from the farmers.

These companies were evading trade tax, he added. The CM said that he would not introduce VAT and claimed that tax and revenue realisation shot up by 28 per cent in the State.

He said he did not oppose setting up of big industries in UP, but he was not in favour of such industries at the cost of medium and small-scale industries. He said that under Kanya Vidya Dhan Yojna, girl students would get Rs 35,000 instead of Rs 20,000. He also said that all widows would get Vidhva pension.
