BHOPAL: The feedback on the government-run schemes is not encouraging for the state government. This is what the feedback submitted by MLAs of six divisions to the top BJP leaders indicate. They were submitted at a meeting here on Wednesday.
The MLAs of Rewa, Gwalior, Chambal, Sagar, Jabalpur and Shahdol submitted the feedback of schemes run by the state and Central government in the state for the welfare of poor and other sections of society.
