Mhow (Madhya Pradesh): Inaugurating the newly-constructed temple of Lord Parshuram at his birth place Janapav in Mhow tehsil on Tuesday, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that Rs 1,090.70 lakh was sanctioned for Maheshwar-Janapav Udgahan Micro Irrigation Scheme to provide water to 108 villages of Mhow, Barwani, Pithampur and Maheshwar.
