He was addressing Dhanyawad Indore Samaroh at Rajbagh Palace on Sunday.
“The Indore brand shines in the world. We will use it for the state’s development. Indore is the engine for the development and growth of MP now,” Chouhan said.
He added that Indore’s people have a nature that accepts everyone, values that make everyone their own and love that makes the hearts of even the hardest of people melt.
