Bhopal: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that Kolar area will now be known as Shyama Prasad Mukherji Nagar. The area will be developed into an ultra modern township through systematic development. Chouhan was addressing a massive gathering on the occasion of the inauguration of various development works in Kolar worth Rs 157 crore. Chouhan said that tap water supply will begin in Shyama Prasad Mukherji Nagar from December 25, which happens to be the birthday of Atal Behari Vajpayee. Tehsil office will also begin soon in the area.
The Chief Minister dedicated the Shyama Prasad Mukherji Government Post Graduate College building and announced the beginning of BA, Botany and MSc classes here. He said that along with Shyama Prasad Mukherji Nagar, Bairagarh are will also be developed. He presented smart phones to students studying in Government colleges in Bhopal city. He also distributed free copies of khasra to farmers.
Calling upon youths, Chouhan said that they should resolve to build a new Madhya Pradesh. They should become job givers and not job seekers for which they can take the benefits of schemes including Mukhya Mantri Yuva Udyami Yojana, Chief Ministers Economic Assistance Scheme, Chief Ministers Young Entrepreneurs Scheme etc. On the various innovative and unique schemes like Mukhya Mantri Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana for farmers, Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Vidyarthi Yojana for outstanding students and Deendayal Rasoi for poor, he said that every poor person will have a plot or house. At least 15 lakh houses will be built in the next two years in the state.
Calling upon girls to study hard and move ahead, Chouhan said that very soon he would be talking to women and girls through Dil se programme on Akashvani. He asked for suggestions from girls in this regard. Girls will be given 50 per cent reservation in local units and 33 per cent reservation in government jobs. He said that the society cannot be developed unless the future of girls is developed. He praised MLA Rameshwar Sharma for launching the development works to change the look of Shyama Prasad Mukherji Nagar. He administered oath to local residents to take part in cleanliness survey and bring Bhopal to the top position in cleanliness. Chouhan said that people have become aware towards cleanliness and their mentality has also changed through Prime Ministers Swachh Bharat Mission.
Bhopal MP Alok Sanjar said that today Madhya Pradesh has become the fastest developing state due to the Chief Minister Chouhans efforts. People from other states come to study the unique schemes of the state and adopt them. Sanjar said that CM has prepared a favourable environment in the state for development and prosperity and has proved that politics only aims at public service. In his welcome address MLA Rameshwar Sharma said that Kolar area has developed in a very disorganised manner. Houses have been constructed in fields. There is no proper system of water and human waste management. There were no colleges here and there was dearth of several public utility services also. But now the entire scenario has changed. He said the beginning of development works worth Rs 157 crore is a remarkable gift to the people of the area.
