Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that if the houses of all the poor of the State are built, then it will become worthwhile for me to stay on the post of Chief Minister. Chouhan said this during his spot interaction at the Mukhya Mantri Jan Seva camp organised at Khairi Silgena in Sehore district on Friday where he resolved applications of villagers of five panchayats. Member of Parliament Ramakant Bhargava and Chairman of Scheduled Tribal Finance Corporation Nirmala Barela were also present.
Congratulating the villagers of Khairi Silgena Panchayat, Chief Minister Chouhan said that the Panchayat has been elected unopposed on their call. The Chief Minister also declared the Panchayat as a Samras Panchayat. He administered the oath to the villagers that instead of going to the police station, they should resolve their petty disputes with mutual consent in the village itself. The Chief Minister also appealed to make the village school a model school. He instructed to construct internal drains to make better arrangements for cleanliness in the village. Chouhan said that the purpose of Jan Seva Abhiyan is that the villagers should not have to make rounds of the office and they should get the benefits in the camp itself. He directed that no eligible farmer should be deprived of the Pradhan Manrti Kisan Kalyan and Mukhya Mantri Samman Nidhi. The Chief Minister also assured many applicants about their work being done from the stage itself. In one such case, Chouhan asked questions to a beneficiary of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Pawan. Pawan told that Rs 1.38 lakh were deposited in his account in two installments. His house is being constructed well. Chief Minister Chouhan also handed over a cheque of Rs 4 lakh under Sambal Yojana after the death of Pawan’s wife due to snake-bite. He directed the Collector to make Kisan Credit Cards of all farmers and livestock owners. Terminate the guilty officers and blacklist the warehouse operators: Taking a strict stand on irregularities in weighing farmers’ produce and non-payment, CM Chouhan directed the Divisional Commissioner Bhopal to terminate the guilty officers and take action against the warehouse operator. The Chief Minister said that his Government has zero tolerance policy regarding corruption, the corrupt will not be spared. Expressing displeasure towards the officers of warehousing and co-operatives, including the Collector, the Chief Minister asked how this happened and why action was not taken till now? He clearly said that the culprits should be investigated and sent to jail. He told to blacklist the warehouse immediately. Chouhan inquired about the activities of self-help groups in all the panchayats and directed that the group should be empowered so that the income of its women should increase to Rs 10,000 per month. He said that in order to provide self-employment to the youth, financial assistance along with farming should be provided to the youth on Employment Day.
