Playing damaru helps waive-off power bills: CM

Chouhan making announcements like a ‘madari’: Kamal Nath

BHOPAL : As the assembly polls draws near, a war of words has begun between politicians. PCC president Kamal Nath, while interacting with media persons on Saturday, said Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is making announcements like a ‘Madari’. Nath was commenting in the context of employment conventions in the state.

Countering Nath’s statement during an employment convention in Budhni, Chouhan said he was such a ‘Madari’ whose ‘Damaru’ works wonder and reduces steep electricity bills to nought. Chouhan said he was such a ‘Madari’, who paid children’s school fee and ensured justice for poor and formed laws for protection of women.

Chouhan said he was a ‘Madari’, who got salary of teachers, who used to get Rs 500, touch Rs 60,000 pm.

Chouhan alleged that the Congress had turned the state into ‘BIMARU’ and said: “Madhya Pradesh is now a developed state and I will not leave any stone unturned to make it a prosperous state.”

Earlier too, the duo had entered into a verbal war when Nath had called Chouhan ‘Nalayak’.

7.50 lakh youths to be given employment: The dream of more than 2.84 lakh youths getting employment fulfilled in the employment conventions held across the state on Saturday. As many as 2,150 youths, during the state-level employment, self-employment beneficiaries convention organized in Budhni, received letters for sanctioning of loans and letters of intent for job from Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. He said 7.50 lakh youths would be given employment and 2.60 lakh youths have been provided employment. There would be no poverty in the state. Poor will not live in shanties and they would live in pucca houses in coming days. New schemes of employment have been made over 2.52 lakh people have got job opportunities in private sector in the state in merely two months. More than 80 persons have got job opportunities in foreign countries also. He said that the campaign to provide jobs to youths would continue.

Union minister of state for skills development and entrepreneurship, Anant Kumar Hegde, appreciating the efforts of the state government for job creation, said the mission to provide jobs to the youths, under the guidance of Chouhan, was being fulfilled. The dreams of youths are being realised.

Hegde said earlier Madhya Pradesh was called a BIMARU state but now lakhs of youths are getting job opportunities in the state.
