CM Yogi worked for the upliftment of Vantangia community

Apart from all the developmental work completed and in progress in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Aditynath has uplifted the neglected Vantangia community that has long been deprived of all government schemes. The people of Vantangia community, who are originally forest-dwellers, did not even have identity cards to prove that they were Indian citizens. As a member of Parliament CM Yogi had drawn the attention of the government towards this community. Now, the Vantangia community lives in proper colonies having access to water electricity and education. Efforts are being undertaken to allow the community to monetise their textiles and handicrafts.

Seven educational institutions comprising of five primary schools and two upper primary schools were set in the area where the Vantangia community lives. Rs 1.77 crore were allocated by the state government for these schools.
