Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan participated in the All India Wrestling, Strongman, and Mallakhamb Conference held on Sunday at Bhopal's Dussehra Ground. This conference for the youth was organised jointly by the All India Wrestling Association and the All India Strongman Association. The event also honoured talented youngsters from the society.
"When I was in 7th grade, I led my first protest. It was for the laborers. The protest aimed to ensure they received five times the wages instead of the usual two and a half. I still remember the beating I received during that protest. Society should emphasize education. We should also focus on entrepreneurship along with agriculture. Our children can start their own startups. We won't remain poor, we won't cry," Chouhan said.
People from across the country joined the event
Bringing together members of the Kirar, Dhakad, and Malav communities, the National Spokesperson and Minister of the All India Kirar Kshatriya Mahasabha Brajesh Chauhan, revealed that people from Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and various other parts of the country participated in the program. The event honoured individuals from these communities who have achieved high positions in the current legislative, ministerial, former ministerial, and parliamentary roles, both in government and non-governmental organisations.
