Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Monday as many as 1.25 lakh youths would get government jobs and 25 lakh people self-employment with assistance from the state government.

Chouhan said this while addressing public gatherings in Sagar, Panna and Chhatarpur during his road show organised to canvass for BJP candidates contesting civic bodies polls.

The CM said the youths were entitled to get a loan ranging from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 50 lakh under Chief Minister Udyam Kranti Yojana and the government will also give guarantee against the loan.

Chouhan said, “When Kamal Nath was the chief minister he always used to cry for money and used to say that the treasury was empty. I have no money for development. But I say that the Bharatiya Janata Party government leaves no stone unturned in development. There is no dearth of money in Mama's treasury.”

The BJP government has made all-round development. The government of Delhi and Bhopal is a double engine government, which will ensure the overall development of the cities, he said.

Addressing a public meeting in Chhatarpur, the CM said the BJP government had given a medical college to Chhatarpur before the 2018 elections. “I had laid the foundation stone of the medical college but as soon as the BJP was out of power, the 15-month Congress government snatched the medical college from Chhatarpur. Now the BJP government has again given the gift of medical college. The tender for which has already been floated. Kamal Nath should answer why did he stop the work of the medical college of Chhatarpur?”

He said, “Congress government committed a sin by wrapping up the Sambal scheme. But the moment BJP came to power again it resumed the scheme for welfare of the poor. Each and every name of the poor which was dropped from the list by the then Congress government would be added back to the list of beneficiaries under the scheme.”
