BHOPAL : Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, speaking after inaugurating the building of ‘Dainik Lokmat’ here on Wednesday said any person can do good work only when he gets the support of his family. Chauhan said wife was the source of ‘Shakti’ in the family and people have problem with my ‘Shakti’.

Chauhan, in a live interview, said he is happy to become ‘Mama’ of children of the state. He said he got several girls married when he was an MP and this led to the girls calling him ‘Mama’. When he started doing things for the welfare of boys, then they also started calling him ‘Mama’.

Speaking about the role of the media, Chauhan said media should make efforts to get news but it should not do anything to make news.

Former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh on this occasion said Chief Minister should not have any portfolio. He said there were many attempts to drag him into controversies but all in vain as he did not have any portfolio. Singh suggested that Chauhan too should start ‘Chief Minister’s Hour’ in state Assembly. Singh advised the media to show the full truth. He said when he speaks about Hindu fundamentalists, it is shown on media but when he speaks about Muslim fundamentalists, it is not shown.

‘Lokmat’ chief editor and MP Vijay Darda and Sudhir Agarwal were also present in the function.
