Chauhan was addressing administrative officers at IAS Service Meet at Academy of Administration here on Friday. The Chief Minister said that officers should work to bring about positive changes in people’s lives and fulfill the dream of bringing Madhya Pradesh among the ranks of the developed states of the country.
