BJP will siege veteran Congress leaders in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections
MMNN:6 May 2023

Bhopal : Both BJP and Congress parties are busy preparing for Madhya Pradesh Assembly Elections 2023. Where the Congress is giving the message of being strong by breaking the strong leaders of the BJP. At the same time, the BJP is preparing a strategy to tie the veteran leaders of the Congress to their homes. The party has chalked out a strategy to siege leaders like Congress stalwarts Dr. Govind Singh, Ajay Singh, Jitu Patwari, Sajjan Singh Verma, Jaivardhan Singh, Priyavrat Singh, Laxman Singh, Umang Singhar, Tarun Bhanot, Bala Bachchan, Sachin Yadav. BJP will also field a strong candidate against them and with aggressive campaigning will weaken the leaders around them by bringing them into the BJP.

The Congress is pulling strings on those strong BJP leaders, whose traditional constituencies have been captured by the new BJP. Such leaders include former ministers like Deepak Joshi. Joshi is soon going to join the Congress.
By including such leaders in their party, the Congress wants to send a message that the BJP is now weakening. In the state also, due to this, the atmosphere towards BJP gets spoiled.
The BJP is also preparing such a strategy that all the bigoted leaders of the Congress should be besieged in such a way that they cannot come out of their constituency in the elections. The BJP has fielded its team in the field of these veteran leaders. Efforts have been started to bring the petty leaders there into the BJP. The BJP is trying to bring everyone along with it, be it panch-sarpanch, councilor or district-district panchayat leader.
Leader of Opposition in the Vidhan Sabha Dr. Govind Singh asked them to take care of themselves when Congress leaders of BJP were tied up at home and made to join the party. None of our leaders will budge from the toss. BJP's boat is about to sink. Party leaders have been under siege for a long time. The public will give a befitting reply to the BJP in this election.

Narottam seeks reply from Kamal Nath on Congress's announcement to ban Bajrang Dal in Karnataka
MMNN:3 May 2023

Bhopal : During the Karnataka assembly elections, politics has been heated all over the country regarding banning the Bajrang Dal along with the banned Islamic organization PFI in its election manifesto by the Congress. The BJP has been a constant attacker of the Congress's promise to ban the Bajrang Dal, linking it to 'Bajrangbali'. Now the home minister of the state Narottam Mishra has surrounded the Congress as well as Kamal Nath on this issue and has demanded him to prove his devotion to Hanuman. Narottam Mishra has also written a letter to Kamal Nath in this context, in which he has asked whether Kamal Nath agrees with banning Bajrang Dal. Clarify the situation regarding what he himself thinks about the demand for ban on Bajrang Dal.

Narottam wrote in the letter - 'Kamal Nath ji, I have seen many videos and pictures of you, in which your devotion to Lord Bajrangbali is displayed. Your devotion to Bajrangbali has been seen and heard from time to time through the medium of media. Thus, there is no Bajrang devotee who is not hurt by the announcement of the ban on the Bajrang Dal by the Congress in Karnataka. Digvijaya Singh, a veteran leader of your party, also agrees with this point of the Karnataka manifesto and he is repeating the ban imposed on the Bajrang Dal during his tenure as Chief Minister in the East. In this case, I request you to make it clear from your response on this matter whether you are in favor of this decision or against it.

A special programme of Mann Ki Baat was organised in Sandipani, the huge auditorium of the Raj Bhavan.

Mann Ki Baat strengthened people's faith in democracy and governance

Governor Shri Mangubhai Patel while addressing the invited guests before the start of the programme said that on the basis of his experience of working for 14 years as a member of the Cabinet of Prime Minister Shri Modi during his tenure as Chief Minister of Gujarat, he can say that Shri Modi ji is a very sensitive person. His sensitivity includes humans and animals alike. Shri Patel mentioned two incidents of sensitivity of the Prime Minister. He told that when there was an incident of the hunting of a lion in Sasan Gir National Park, Shri Modi as the Chief Minister of Gujarat immediately reached the spot. Late in the night, without worrying about his life, he went to the middle of the forest and reviewed the incident on the spot. Similarly, during the flood in Surat city, sitting in a boat in the middle of 14 feet deep water, he reached among the flood victims without any delay to learn their pain and suffering. Governor Shri Patel said that the Mann Ki Baat programme is a wonderful platform to connect the Prime Minister directly with the public in a democratic system. Modi ji is an orator of extraordinary talent, universally gifted, who pays attention to the nuances of the people. By understanding the emotions, he establishes direct contact with them. This is the reason that today he has been recognised as the most loved and unique politician of the world's largest democracy. He has greatly strengthened the faith of the people in democracy and governance. Listeners of Mann Ki Baat get inspiration and self-confidence from Modi ji on selfless works, stories of change makers, service works, innovation and self-confidence.

Mann Ki Baat transformed the masses into manpower

Governor Shri Patel said that Mann Ki Baat is really such a people's revolution, which has reached every nook and corner of the country. This is such a charisma, which has converted the masses into manpower. Has enabled India to face Covid, the biggest tragedy of the century. He said that the appeal made in Mann Ki Baat boosted the morale of the people in the time of disaster and encouraged the Covid Warriors. It has also done an unprecedented miracle of converting efforts like Janata curfew and vaccination into a mass movement. This miracle happened because sensitive Modi ji's Mann Ki Baat touched the heart of every Indian. If we talk about the most successful government campaign of independent India, then undoubtedly it is the cleanliness campaign started by Prime Minister Modi ji. The basis of the success of the campaign was to make people an integral and important part of the campaign, the very next day after the launch of the campaign, the Prime Minister talked about the construction of toilets before the temple in the first episode of Mann Ki Baat on 3 October 2014. It is the result of the efforts of Prime Minister Shri Modi that the thinking of the general public has become such that no one litters at home, outside or even in public places. If someone does, people stop and forbid him. Shri Patel said that Mann Ki Baat is the energy force for building a better India, which is becoming the strength of efforts to establish India as a world leader.

Narottam, agitated by the controversial statement of Mallikarjun Kharge on PM Modi, said – Congress's mentality is poisonous
MMNN:28 April 2023

Bhopal : The political uproar that erupted after Congress national president Mallikarjun Kharge in his speech at an election rally in Karnataka described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a poisonous snake is not taking its name. Even though Kharge has expressed regret for his statement later, giving clarification, but BJP leaders are continuously attacking him. State Home Minister Dr. Narottam Mishra retorted on this statement of Kharge and said that in reality the mentality, culture and ideology of Congress is poisonous. Taunting Kharge, he said that I am surprised from where he gets so much poison in his words. Does he go to 10 Janpath to recharge? When Gujarat elections were held, he spoke there. When elections were held here, they spoke here. Narottam Mishra further said that in fact the mentality of Congress is poisonous and their culture is also poisonous. Rahul Gandhi was punished just for speaking. Charges were framed against Digvijay Singh only for speaking. These are people without mass base and keep giving such statements to stay in discussions. The ideology of Congress itself is becoming poisonous. It does not suit him to speak such poisonous things for Prime Minister Modi, the father of Amrit Mahotsav and Good Governance. Modiji has raised the prestige of India in the world. Today the whole of India and the world takes pride in the name of Modiji.

Digvijay Singh also tightened

Narottam also took a jibe at Congress leader and former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh. Digvijay had recently told party workers at one place that he has come out to join the Congress. On this statement of his, Narottam said that whatever Digvijay Singh is saying, he has already been speaking, but Kamal Nath is not understanding. No one comes to their meeting. That's why they are roaming around gathering the Congress and speaking poisonous words.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the meaning of Civil Services Day is that we are public servants and our main aim is to serve the country. In a democracy, there is governance of the people, for the people and by the people. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the theme of Civil Services Day 2023 is ‘Developed India, Empowering Citizens and Reaching the Last Mile’. Congratulating Team Madhya Pradesh, he said that he is proud that together they have made a very important contribution in making Madhya Pradesh prosperous and developed. Team Madhya Pradesh has worked unitedly. Rapid positive changes have taken place in Madhya Pradesh. We have surprisingly increased the capacity of irrigation from 7.5 lakh hectare to 45 lakh hectare. Crossing this, we will now work to increase it up to 65 lakh hectares. Today 4 lakh kilometers of roads have been built in the state. At some point of time it used to be only 71 thousand kms and was in poor condition. Now there are excellent roads in the state.
Amazing work has been done in various fields including energy in the state. We are able to work as the state now has good resources. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the construction department should also remain active in the state. Today Madhya Pradesh is counted among the developed state, Madhya Pradesh is no more a bimaru state. The credit for this goes to the extraordinary hard work of Team Madhya Pradesh. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that our work is not possible without the common people due to whom we are able to reach the beneficiaries. Vikas yatras have become Jan-kalyan yatras in the state.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that talking of infrastructure in the state, a lot of positive changes have taken place. Agricultural production has increased manifold. The grain stores are full. Per capita income has increased. The contribution of Madhya Pradesh in the country’s GSDP has increased. In the year 2005-06, the budget size of the state was Rs 25 thousand crores, which has increased to Rs one lakh crore in the year 2012-13, Rs two lakh crore in the year 2020-21 and this time it has crossed Rs 3 lakh crore, which is not a cakewalk. It is an exceptional achievement. Madhya Pradesh has taken a comparatively higher jump, the credit of which goes to Team Madhya Pradesh.

Good governance has helped to end public and administration’s distance

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the distance between the public and the administration has been bridged in the state, which has become possible due to the efforts of good governance. The Mukhyamantri Jan-Seva Abhiyan succeeded in connecting more than 83 lakh beneficiaries with the schemes of the Central and State Governments. Our programs became the programs of the people. People have also participated in the decisions. Campaign will be conducted again from May 10 to 25 to redress public grievances.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the civil servants have to accept this challenge that the citizens do not have to wander from pillar to post for their work. Problems should be solved through camps in the wards of villages and cities. Several measures were implemented in the direction of good governance including CM Helpline. Public hearing, one-day governance and Samadhan online are such measures. By connecting these with technology, attention has to be paid to remove the anomalies that come up along with the settlement of tasks. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan also mentioned in detail the role of a civil servant through the shlokas of Gita.

Best role of good governance and officers in Madhya Pradesh

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that work has been done continuously in the field of good governance in Madhya Pradesh. In Burhanpur, the work of providing water to every house and implementation of Gati Shakti project has been done. Many innovations have also taken place at the administrative level in the state. Most of the civil servants are performing their best role and the work of putting the public welfare policies of the government on the ground is being done efficiently. Civil servants of the state also have the quality of fast implementation, more than one crore registrations and creation of necessary atmosphere in two months after the formation of Mukhya Mantri Ladli Bahna Yojana is an example of this.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the civil servant is also a leader and his responsibility is also to boost everyone's enthusiasm by treating them equally. There should be no arrogance in the person. There should be no lack of enthusiasm. Find a way to resolve problems with patience. The attitude should be to cheer up even a person who is surrounded by despair. As a person thinks, so he also becomes. The civil servant does not work only for himself, but his work affects the public and the whole country. There should be the art of making irrelevant work relevant. If a person wants, he can change the perception of the world towards the country. All the countrymen have experienced this thing. Similarly a civil servant can change the department by working in the right direction. Civil servants should try to give maximum contribution. That's why civil services have been considered useful for the nation, not just for the individual.

Work with joy and happiness

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that Swami Vivekananda has described man as a storehouse of infinite powers. It is necessary to make full efforts in any work. If you are not successful in one attempt, then you must try again. Time should also be put to good use. Every single moment is precious. As long as one has life, every moment should be used to make the lives of others better. Often happiness does not come from wealth. Working with honesty gives good results. The enthusiasm with which the officers worked during the Corona period is worth being proud of. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan called upon the civil servants to work with joy and happiness. Taking care of all the members in the family, it is easy to perform one's official duties with full concentration. Such a life is relevant. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that for the goal of Atmanirbhar Madhya Pradesh, we are moving ahead by working expeditiously. This work has to be completed with full devotion.

Plans made on the suggestions of the public

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the people of Madhya Pradesh are also participating in development works. Be it Madhya Pradesh Jan-Abhiyan Parishad or other organisations, all of them together are partners in the implementation of the schemes. Many schemes in Madhya Pradesh have been made on the suggestions of the general public. An ideal work culture has been created in the state. The distance between the public and the collector has ended in the districts.

Civil servants have lived up to the expectations

Chief Secretary Shri Iqbal Singh Bains said that the country has a long tradition of civil services. Our administrative system faces with determination the special circumstances and challenging situations. Shri Bains said that in his long tenure, he does not remember such an occasion when we were given some special responsibility and did not live up to the expectation. The Chief Secretary said that it is a matter of satisfaction and pride to work with such an efficient team. He said that whether it is a matter of the Corona period or the organisation of Simhastha or be the occasion to take action against the mafia, development of infrastructure or arrangements to solve the problems of the public, the history of many achievements has been created in all administrative dimensions in Madhya Pradesh. The Chief Secretary said that whatever work we do is analysed. Many shortcomings also come to the fore and many good works are ignored in front of the shortcomings. We should also be careful about publicizing and interpreting our best works.
Initially, Chief Minister Shri Chouhan and the guests inaugurated the Civil Service Day by lighting the lamp. CM Shri Chouhan was welcomed by Shri Anirudh Mukherjee.

aa Social revolution is taking place in the state for women empowerment: Chief Minister Shri Chouhan
Bhopal:MMNN: 20 March 2023

Bhopal.Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that social revolution is taking place in Madhya Pradesh for women empowerment. Schemes like Mukhya Mantri Kanya Vivah Yojana, Ladli Laxmi Yojana, 50 percent reservation for women in local elections, reservation in police recruitment, livelihood mission and Sambal are being implemented successfully. Now the Ladli Bahna Yojana has been started, which will not only lead to overall development of women, but will also increase their respect and self-confidence in the society.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan was addressing the Ladli Bahna Sammelan at Lanji in Balaghat district today. He distributed benefits under various schemes to the sisters. Initially, Chief Minister Shri Chouhan performed Kanya-Pujan and welcomed the sisters by showering flowers. Sisters presented Rakhi to the Chief Minister. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan handed over a check of Rs 10 lakh to sister Anjali Choure, who runs Didi Cafe under the National Rural Livelihood Mission.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the aim of my life is the welfare of sisters. If there is laughter on the lips of the sisters, then the life of the brother is successful. The respect of women is highest in Madhya Pradesh. Sisters don't tolerate any kind of injustice, your brother is always with you. Don't worry about the marriage of sisters and daughters, Shivraj Mama will get them married.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that before becoming the Chief Minister, my wife and I used to get poor daughters married together. When I became the Chief Minister, I first started the Mukhyamantri Kanya Vivah Yojana. The previous government did not give the benefit of this scheme to anyone. Now we have decided that under this scheme a check of Rs 50,000 will be given to the daughters and Rs 6,000 to the organizing body.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that daughters have been made a boon instead of a curse in Madhya Pradesh. In the Ladli Lakshmi Yojana, 30 thousand rupees are deposited in the name of a girl child as soon as she is born, so that she gets funds from time to time for her studies etc. Today there are 44 lakh 50 thousand dear Lakshmi daughters in Madhya Pradesh. The maternal uncle also pays the fees for the education and higher education of the daughters.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that today a large number of sisters are representing in the Panchayats. They have got political empowerment. In Madhya Pradesh, 50 percent seats in panchayats have been reserved for sisters. Women are also being given reservation in police recruitment. Self-help groups of women are formed by the Rural and Urban Livelihood Mission and financial and other assistance is provided to them for various activities. Due to this their economic and social empowerment is taking place. At the same time, their self-confidence is increasing.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that ever since he became the Chief Minister this time, the thought was constantly coming in his mind as to what gift he should give to the sisters. I thought of giving gifts to sisters not once but every month. Last January 28 at 4 am the concept of Ladli Bahna Yojana came to my mind and I decided that every month I will put 1000 rupees in the account of poor and lower middle class sisters. The benefit of Ladli Bahna Yojana will be given to all those sisters whose family's annual income is less than two and a half lakh rupees. Sisters will not have to give any income certificate for this. Just a form has to be filled, which our employees will come to your village/locality and get it filled. Along with this, they will also get your e-KYC done.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that the filling of forms for Ladli Bahna Yojana will start from March 25, which will continue till April 30. Money will start coming into the accounts of the sisters from coming 10th June. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan clearly said that there is no need to give any amount to the sisters to take advantage of the scheme. In each case for e-KYC, the government will give Rs 15 to the organization doing KYC. If any person demands any amount from the sisters, then complain about it immediately on 181, action will be taken against that person. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that women should play their part in the implementation of the scheme by joining the “Ladli Bahna Sena”. The Chief Minister called upon to raise voice against domestic violence, social evils and injustice. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that from coming April 1, all liquor vends will be closed in the state.

Bhopal:MMNN: 19 March 2023

Bhopal.Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Mukhyamantri Ladli Bahna Yojana has been made for the empowerment of sisters. The most important thing in empowerment is economic empowerment. If sisters have money, then they also have self-confidence and a sense of self-respect is also awakened. That's why we have decided to put 1000 rupees every month in the account of every eligible sister under Mukhyamantri Ladli Bahna Yojana. Those sisters who are between 23 to 60 years of age, married, family income less than Rs 2.5 lakh per annum and families having less than 5 acres of land will be eligible under the scheme. Family means husband, wife and their children. One thousand rupees will come in the account of such eligible sisters every month. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said this in a message issued on social and electronic media.

Sisters do not need to go to public service center or anywhere else



Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that it is my duty that my sisters do not face any problem. Hence the application process in the scheme has been made very simple. The forms of the scheme will be filled in the wards of your village and city. Sisters do not need to go to Public Service Center or anywhere else. Our employees will come to all the villages and get the forms filled. For this, camps will start from March 25. Camps will be held until the applications of all the sisters are filled.

Composite ID. If you have aadhar number then there will be no problem



Chief Minister Shri Chouhan told that apart from registering their name, husband's name, mobile number etc. in the application, the sisters should have three essential information. First- your or your family's Samagra ID, second- your Aadhaar number and third- your mobile number registered in Samagra. If the sisters have this information, then they will have no problem. Application will be filled and after that e-KYC will be done. For this the sisters do not need to go anywhere. E-KYC process will be completed in village and city wards only. Where there is no connectivity, if there is a need to take the sisters to another village or common service center, the government will arrange a vehicle for them.

If someone asks for money, complain on CM helpline number 181



Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that no fee will be charged for e-KYC. Rs 15 will be paid by the government to the respective Common Service Centers for one e-KYC. If someone asks any sister for money for e-KYC, then you can register a complaint by calling the CM helpline number 181. Such people will be sent to jail. There is no need to give a single penny to the sisters. If my sisters are in trouble, what's the point of being my brother. So be sure - don't worry. Stay in your village, city. Our team will contact you, bring you to the camp and get all the formalities done. E-KYC is being done so that the money goes into the accounts of the sisters only. Rest assured sisters, all their worries are ours.


aa Chief Minister Shri Chouhan felicitated Prime Minister Shri Modi for PM Mitra Park in Madhya Pradesh
Bhopal:MMNN: 17 March 2023

Bhopal.Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has felicitated Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for setting up "PM Mitra" Mega Integrated Textile Park in Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that this decision of the Prime Minister is to promote investment in the textile sector and generate employment. Will prove helpful in creating many opportunities.

Many states have shown interest in setting up PM Mitra Park and have given their proposals to the Ministry of Textiles. The list of selected states has been announced on 17 March 2023 after a year long evaluation, discussion and information sharing. Madhya Pradesh is also included in the 7 states selected for setting up PM Mitra Park. The PM Mitra sites were selected by the Central Government through a challenge method.

PM Mitra Park Scheme



The Union Ministry of Textiles had launched the PM Mitra Park Scheme worth Rs 4,445 crore to set up 7 Mega Integrated Textile Region and Apparel (PM Mitra) Parks. The objective of the scheme is to develop integrated large scale and modern industrial infrastructure facilities for the entire value chain of the textile industry. The scheme is inspired by the Prime Minister's 5-F vision - from Farm to Fiber, from Fiber to Factory, from Factory to Fashion and from Fashion to Foreign. It aspires to fulfill the vision of building a 'Self-reliant India' and firmly establish India on the global textile map.

The Madhya Pradesh government is keen to set up an integrated large-scale textile and apparel park over 1,000 acres of land parcel with world-class industrial infrastructure, which will attract state-of-the-art technology. Along with this, FDI and local investment will be promoted in the textile sector.
The park is planned to be developed with all basic infrastructure facilities like internal roads, power distribution infrastructure, water and waste water treatment plants, plug and play infrastructure development, factory sites, incubation centres, etc. The park will also include ancillary facilities, including a common pretreatment unit, common effluent treatment plant (CETP), workers' hostels and housing (especially for women workers), health facilities, training and skill development, storage, logistics etc.
The proposed park with integrated textile value chain at one place will reduce the logistics cost of the industry and improve the competitiveness of the entire value chain of textile and apparel industry in the state. Employment generation will get a boost from this park, which will provide employment to one lakh direct and 2 lakh indirect people. The Central Government will support the establishment of the proposed park in the form of 'Development Capital Support' (DCS) of Rs 500 crore (Rs 300 crore + Rs 200 crore) in 2 phases.
In order to encourage the manufacturing units to be set up soon in the proposed PM Mitra Park, a provision has been made to give Rs 300 crore per park in 'Competitive Incentive Assistance' (CIS). The unit set up in the park will be provided incentive up to 3 per cent of the total sales turnover. The benefit will be available on “First Come-First Serve” basis subject to the prescribed conditions.
The eco-system for the textile and apparel sector is well developed in Madhya Pradesh. The state has good availability of raw materials (such as cotton, silk and man-made fibers) and a progressive textile policy framework. The state has attracted investors in this sector from across the country. Madhya Pradesh produces cotton, it also has ginning and spinning units to convert cotton into yarn, which is converted into cloth. Presently the state also has apparel units. The units in the state export cotton, yarn and garments. In this way, Madhya Pradesh fulfills the 5-F vision of Prime Minister Shri Modi. PM Mitra Park will further strengthen the development of textile and apparel industry in Madhya Pradesh, which will provide employment and prosperity to the people here.
Madhya Pradesh has received the maximum investment of Rs 3,513 crore in the central government's Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme for the textile sector. PM Mitra Park Yojana will provide an excellent opportunity to fulfill the vision of 'Make in India' and 'Make for the World'.

Addressing the workshop, the Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath said that the global economic scenario is changing rapidly. Therefore, the financial institutions and the governments also need to change their thought-process. He said that in a vast country like India has largest society of aspirational youth and increased budget resources are required to fulfill their ambitions. He said that it is becoming challenging to mobilize financial resources for the changed and constantly changing India and its States. Therefore, banks, state governments and private sector institutions need to adopt the change. He laid stress on deviating from the process of conventional budget making process and working on alternative processes and innovative ideas. He said that it has become necessary to focus attention on the economic activities that generate jobs.
The Chief Minister said that in a State like Madhya Pradesh, there are abundant natural resources but in expanding economic activities, they are far behind. He said that efforts are being made to make Madhya Pradesh's agriculture fully modernized so that the economic activities associated with agriculture can also be expanded. He said that Madhya Pradesh is far ahead in agricultural production but there are many obstacles in exploiting the market potential.
The Chief Minister said that the budget resources mobilization of many countries is excellent even without laws like fiscal responsibility and budget management. He said that there is a reduction of Rs. 14 thousand crores in Madhya Pradesh's share in the Union Budget. He emphasized on having a new vision and fresh approach to managing budget resources and improving governance.
Shri Ahluwalia said that designing projects, making budget provisions for them and completing them within available resources is a common practice across the world. The fact is that governments have limited financial resources for ambitious projects. The Governments have many tasks, responsibilities, priorities and social obligations apart from economic infrastructure projects. There are many challenges in completing them simultaneously. As a result, the speed of projects slows down and they start lagging behind. He said that there is a need to think beyond the conventional approach of depending on budgetary resources. In such a situation, States look towards the private sector for assistance. The private sector is fearful of risks and threats while the governments are bound by the welfare principles beyond the loss and profit. Both have their limitations. Therefore, there is a need for a law to work in cooperation between the two.
Shri Ahluwalia said that instead of managing finances for large economic infrastructural projects, the system of providing guarantee by the state should also be considered. The governments should assume the role of a friend in managing the financial risks for the projects. For example, in order to deal with the ill effects of climate change, infrastructure projects of economic importance should be given a guarantee. These may include irrigation and water conservation projects. He said that considering the density of forest resources, Madhya Pradesh can ​​raise budget resources on its basis. This process can also be adopted for sector-specific dedicated infrastructure projects.
Finance Minister Mr. Tarun Bhanot gave welcome address. The Chief Secretary Shri S.R. Mohanty said that Madhya Pradesh is not new to innovative practice of mobilizing budget resources. The B.O.T. road projects and Rogi Kalyan Samitis for hospital management are the best examples.
The workshop was attended by top officers of banks, budget experts from the corporate sector, scholars with special abilities in budget formulation and senior officials of departments. Earlier, Chief Minister Mr. Kamal Nath presented a memento to Shri Ahluwalia.

The Chief Minister said that water crisis is increasing due to our negligence and lack of understanding, which will become more serious in future. He stated that at the international platform during the Earth Summit in 1982, he had raised the issue that the environment and forests are safe as long as we have water. Hence, we will have to work first to save water and to conserve and protect water bodies. Shri Kamal Nath said that today our 65 dams and 165 reservoirs are drying up. Local bodies are able to provide water to citizens in 2 to 4 days. This crisis will further deepen in future. We have to be concerned about it from today. He said that our environmentalists and volunteers, working in the field of water conservation with dedication will have to play an important role in this. He said that if we do not take care about it from today, the future generation will not forgive us.
Shri Kamal Nath mentioned that our aim in bringing the Right to Water Act, is to create awareness among the people to save water and to act as a companion with the Government in water conservation. He said that he expects from the people working in the field of water conservation to give their important suggestions to make this law practical and effective. They should also suggest measures how to ensure water for people in future. Shri Kamal Nath said that many new technologies for water conservation and increasing ground water level are available today.

The Minister for Public Health Engineering, Shri Sukhdev Panse said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath, this government is going to give legal rights to the people for adequate water, water in access and drinking water. Madhya Pradesh will be the first state in the country to give such a right.
Shri Panse said that every aspect from saving every drop of rain and supplying it to the house will be included in the Water Rights Act. Water recycling, water recharging, distribution and use will also come under the purview of this law. He said that at present, 72% of the population of the state lives in 0.1 lakh 28 thousand habitations in 55000 villages. Ninety eight percentage of the drinking water system of villages is based on ground water. That is why the declining ground water level is increasing the water crisis every year. He said that in the coming five years as per the intention of the Chief Minister, we will provide 55 litres per person pure and clean water through taps in every household in the state. Shri Panse said that he is sure that the detailed discussions on the right to water today would definitely lead to better conclusions.

All the State Governments should follow this initiative of Madhya Pradesh.

aa Change mindset, change profile of Madhya Pradesh, go from e-governance to We-governance
Bhopal:MMNN: 3 January 2020

Bhopal.Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath, while extending New Year wishes to everyone during the first meeting of the New Year with senior administrative officials at the Mantralaya here today, discussed the priorities of the government. The Chief Minister said in his address that the government is now a year old. The government’s approach to the administrative machinery has become clear. He said that everyone has put the government on test. He said that every government and Chief Minister has his own vision and style of functioning and the administration machinery also has its own methods.
The Chief Minister, while counting the priorities of the government in the new year, said that bringing about a change in thinking is utmost necessary. A new identity of Madhya Pradesh will be created only by a change in mindset. He said that there should be no difference in the way the government thinks and the administrative system works.
The Chief Minister said that there has been a change in the administration methods that the Britishers taught in the country. The Britishers only taught how to protect the interests of the state. Today, protecting the interests of common citizens, consumers and beneficiaries is being prioritized. He said that the government now needs to be friendly and cooperative with full accountability. He urged to consider necessary changes in the rules, laws, procedures and to give suggestions with self inspiration. He said that many schemes remain incomplete due to lack of budget and many other reasons. There is need to focus on the schemes pending with the central government on priority. Take full advantage of the central schemes and remove the obstacles. The Chief Minister said that we cannot change time but time will definitely change us, so work with time to move forward and take the state ahead.
The Chief Minister said that there is a need to work together on how to change the profile of Madhya Pradesh. An atmosphere of trust and confidence should be created in the state so that a new identity of Madhya Pradesh is created in the country. The Chief Minister said that the biggest challenge is to improve governance and administration. It starts from the senior level to the lower level. Every department must make contribution and play role in this process.
Shri Nath said that every department will also have to see what new changes are happening in other states related to its field. We must learn from the success and failures of others. For this, he told to create a review cell in every department and make a vision document. He told not to depend on the formality of correspondence to resolve the pending schemes in the central government, but constantly contact the concerned authorities and find out solutions so that the state will get the full benefits of the budget provisions and schemes.
E-governance to We-governance
The Chief Minister told the officers that more attention needs to be given on enabling service delivery systems so that common citizens can get full benefits of it. The more effective the service delivery system, the more effective administration will be. He said that now there is a need to move from e-governance to We-governance. Old systems must be reviewed and changes must be made in ineffective systems to make them effective. He said that there is some drawback of every change, but it is not right to ignore big gains for small losses.
The Chief Minister said that tribal welfare and forest wealth protection are among the significant priorities of the government. He told to study the good works happening in other states as well. The attitude of not changing with the changes and times is not right. A committee must be formed in every department to study the good work being done in other states.
The Chief Minister said that the system of giving quick approval in the field of industry should be implemented so that investors do not have to wander to complete formalities. Talking about clean cities, the Chief Minister said that Indore and Bhopal are lauded. Beyond this, it will be necessary to think about what new dimensions can be added in the field of cleanliness. The Chief Minister said that while considering the provision of compulsory painting for large government and non-government buildings built on the side of the roads, enacting a law is also being considered with a view to enhance the beauty of the cities. He said that a small effort will be made to bring about a change in attitude.
Land Management Authority to be constituted
The Chief Minister also briefed about the formation of Land Management Authority with the objective of using unused lands owned by various departments in public interest. He said that every department should review how much land is useful for them and how much is lying unused. He said on such land, schemes like construction of houses for poor can be made.
The Chief Minister said that departments need not be too sensitive for land ownership as such lands will ultimately be used in the public interest. Mentioning about the government's land near BHEL, he said that it is neither being used by the government nor it is being used by the BHEL. The departments should either use the land or allow the land available with them to be used.
Staff Selection Commission within a week
The Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath said that the Staff Selection Commission should start functioning in the next one week. Complete all its formalities. As regard to the Skill Development, he said that it is important to assess the success achieved in skill development work and priority should be decided which skills are useful for employment. Pay attention on the skills that are necessary for the state. Cooperate fully to encourage economic activities, he added.
Referring to the launch of the second phase of loan waiver of farmers, the Chief Minister said that there is a scope for Madhya Pradesh to become a horticulture capital not only of India but also of the world. Fully capitalize this scope. There is a lot of potential for floriculture. The food processing is an integrally connected field with this sector. He said that we have to strive together how to connect Madhya Pradesh with the changes taking place in the world. He said the change will continue at its own pace. If the steps are not taken with the change, we will be left behind.
Regarding the Education sector, the Chief Minister said that there is a need to do lot more in the field of education. He mentioned that at present there is a lack of quality in education from college to primary level. There is a need to improve the standard. Strategic efforts have to be enhanced. We will have to start from the primary schools. He said that a huge budget is spent in the field of education but without improving the education quality, we are unable to gain in future.
Campaign against drug companies manufacturing spurious medicines
Referring to the priority of the health sector, the Chief Minister said that there is a need to appoint Ayurvedic doctors in every primary health centre and to ensure optimum use of schemes like Ayushman.
The Chief Minister stated that it has become a trend to use departmental budget in the month of January, February and March. It is important to avoid this trend. Referring to the ‘Shuddh ke liye Yuddh’ campaign, the Chief Minister said that the situation to fight for purity is unpleasant in itself. He further mentioned that now campaign will be launched against the companies involved in manufacturing of spurious medicines. He further added that in the public interest, he is committed to make Madhya Pradesh a state of purity. Similarly, he is also committed to abolish mafias. Shri Kamal Nath mentioned that the common men should not be considered as mafia for violation of law. He said that the government will not tolerate blackmailing mafias, which pressurize as individual or group. The Chief Minister said that the government will have to take steps to empower the tribal community, dwelling in the forest areas by adopting a collaborative stand. Even with evidence, it is not appropriate to ask for the record from such poor people and to follow the old trend.
The Chief Minister said that eradication of malnutrition is one of the priorities. Apart from this we will have to work further keeping in view the high potential in tourism in the state. He said that Madhya Pradesh has more potential in comparison to other states and the state can overtake many states in heritage tourism.
The Chief Secretary Shri S.R. Mohanty shed light on the achievements of the previous year.
