The schools in naxal-affected jagargunda village of Sukma district have been reopened. With Mukhyamantri Suposhan Yojana, malnutrition rate in the entire state has declined by 13.79% within one year. Number of minor forest produce procured on support price has been increased from 7 to 31 and wage rate for tendupatta collection has also been increased.

A new chapter of development in forest region with forest land right certificates
Many radio listeners told that the a new chapter of development has started for the forest dwellers with forestland rights certificates and Community Forestland Rights Certificate. In the context Chief Minister said that it was an injustic to reject the forest right claims, hence, when the new government came into power, action was taken to rectify this situation. Out of the canceled claims, more than 40 thousand people were given individual leases and 46 thousand community leases. This is a new revolution in terms of community leasing. Thus, through 4 lakh 87 thousand land rights pattas, lease of 51 lakh acres of land has been given, which is the highest in the country. This work has not only been done in Bastar, but in different parts of the state. The lands under these forest rights pattas are now being utilized for farming, animal husbandry, fisheries and livelihood in dozens of villages.
