Bengaluru: The Karnataka government’s ‘Gruha Lakshmi’ scheme, which offers Rs 2,000 to the woman head of the family holding an APL/BPL card, will benefit a number of deities, including the presiding deity of Mysuru Goddess Chamundeshwari.

Dinesh Gooligowda, a Congress MLC and vice-president of the party’s state media cell, said on Friday that he had written to Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar to ask that Rs 2,000 be given to the Goddess each month as part of the program.

According to him, the proposal was approved by Shivakumar, the chief of the Karnataka Congress, who also gave the Women and Child Welfare Minister Laxmi Hebbalkar instructions to deposit the money into the Chamundeshwari temple account on a monthly basis.

“The Deputy Chief Minister immediately responded to my letter requested and instructed Laxmi Hebbalkar to deposit Rs 2,000 to Devi every month from her department or personally,” Gooligowda stated in a press release.

The first installment of the Gruha Lakshmi scheme was deposited at the Goddess Chamundeshwari temple on August 30 by the Karnataka government, which was based in the palace city of Mysuru.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Shivakumar dedicated it to the Goddess and prayed for the scheme’s success, which aims to empower women from economically disadvantaged groups.
