Masses are MPs real strength: CM

Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh's people are its true power, which will help scotch indigence and unemployment while transforming it into an energetic and developed state, Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred. In his Independence Day message, he extended greetings and observed, "Within a brief span of time, my dispensation has taken some radical decisions and launched schemes.

Over 20 lakh agrarian debts were waived. Numerous tillers had availed multiple loans on the same land resource. Subsequent to scrutiny, their dues shall also be set aside. Peasants will receive Rs 160 per quintal for sale of wheat in rabi 2018-19. The incentive shall be deposited in respective accounts. Cooperative banks' capital liquidity will be enhanced, for which a Rs 3,000-crore scheme is being chalked out. As many as Rs 1,000 cr have already been disbursed." It is for the first time that 1,000 cowsheds are being constructed. Farmers are getting power at half rate while the necessitous are charged only Rs 100 for 100 units. The Indira Kisan Jyoti Yojana is providing a flat rate of Rs 700 per horsepower annually – instead of Rs 1,400 on 10 hp permanent farm pump connections – thereby benefitting 18 lakh growers. Satpura and Amarkantak will add a 550 MW unit each. Reiterating the government's resolve to increase irrigation capacity on 45 lakh hectares, Mr Nath said that no stone would be left unturned to complete related projects despite the fact that his regime inherited empty coffers. Madhya Pradesh shall fully utilise Narmada water allocated to it.
