Free Coaching Arrangement to be made for Poor Students: CM

Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that Madhya Pradesh will be made a dream state of youths. Free coaching arrangement will be made for the poor students for competitive examinations. Biographies of Great Personalities will be included in the school curriculum. Shri Chouhan was addressing the winners of ‘Mere Deendayal” International General Knowledge competition here today. Six winners from each district were invited in the programme. CM Shri Chouhan had coffee with the students under the ‘Coffee with CM’ programme.

The winners of ‘Mere Deendayal’ Competition also asked questions on many subjects and gave suggestions on various issues. Shri Chouhan mentioned that implementation on good suggestions will be carried out immediately. Addressing the winners, Shri Chouhan said there is a vast difference in the past and present Madhya Pradesh. There was only 2900 m.w. electricity available in the state earlier. Today 18 thousand m.w. electricity is available. Madhya Pradesh has become a power surplus state now. Earlier irrigation facility was available on just 7 lakh 50 thousand hectare through all means; today 40 lakh hectare area is being irrigated. In future, irrigation facility will be provided on 80 lakh hectare area. Many colleges have been opened during the last 10 years as compared to the last 50 years. By eliminating karmi culture in education sector, full attention is being paid on quality education. Remarkable progress has been registered in agriculture sector. Agriculture growth rate is 20 percent. Opportunities to set up self employment will be provided by imparting training to 15 lakh youths annually under the Youth Empowerment Mission.

Moreover, Shri Chouhan stated that Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana has proved blessings for the farmers. This scheme is being studied by other states and it could be implemented in the country. He mentioned that Rs. 2 thousand per quintal for wheat will be given to the farmers to enable them to get fair value of their hard labour
