Through video conference, Chouhan sought information on innovations launched in districts, progress of One District One Product, works conducted to encourage women self-help groups and arrangements made for Ladli Laxmi Yojana’s guidance and career counselling.

Districts should decide that in some panchayats, representatives should be elected unanimously. All the eligible residents of such Panchayats will be given benefits of poor welfare schemes, said Chouhan. He said that special sops would be given to such panchayats.

Involve people to eradicate malnutrition

Chief Minister Chouhan has said that the state has been facing problem of malnutrition since years. “But I believe that without the cooperation of society, malnutrition cannot be eradicated. I went out on streets of Bhopal on May 24 to collect material for Anganwadis. Ten trucks of material and cheques worth Rs 2 crore were collected during 800-metre journey. Many people came forward to take responsibility of Anganwadis. This has been a wonderful experiment of public participation,” said Chouhan citing example during his review meeting.
