Raipur: Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday said that plentiful development of Chhattisgarh has been the priority and motto of this government and this is the reason why development has been given a new definition in the state in the last two and a half years. Here work is being done to fulfill the dream and ambition of Chhattisgarhia and justify the slogan ‘Yeh Baat Hai Abhiman Ki, Chhattisgarhia Swabhiman Ki’ which also resolves for a ‘Nava Chhattisgarh’ (New Chhattisgarh). The Chief Minister states this in the 19th episode of the Lokvani programme on Sunday while interacting with the people of the state on the topic “Vikas Ka Naya Daur’ (New Era of Development).
Baghel said that the passion for the development of Chhattisgarh has always been there among the people of this state since the era of our ancestors. It is a privilege that this government has got the opportunity to fulfill the dream of the ancestors. The Chief Minister said that he wants to start his talks by taking the names of ancestors Dr. Khubchand Baghel, Pt Sunder Lal Sharma, Barrister Chhedilal, Mini Mata, Chandulal Chandrakar, Pawan Diwan, Dr. Tuman Lal, Bisahu Das Mahant, Dr. Radha Bai, B R Yadav, Thakur Pyare Lal Singh, etc. These great personalities had come from different backgrounds and contributed to the state for the development of the state.
Actually, it was not the demand for an independent state only, rather centuries-old pain was there in the struggle behind it. It was the demand to fulfill the dream and ambition of Chhattisgarhia, said the Chief Minister, adding this government is working in this direction.
