Rich Cultural Heritage of Chhattisgarh should be glorified at national-international-level: CM Bhupesh Baghel

Raipur: Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel today chaired the first introductory meeting of Chhattisgarh Culture Council at his residence office today, and welcomed the newly-appointed members.

On the occasion, Chief Minister said that the rich cultural heritage of Chhattisgarh should be promoted at the national and international level. Chief Minister congratulated the members of the council and requested them to work together and uphold the pride of Chhattisgarh's cultural heritage.

Chief Minister further said that the experts of art-culture and related disciplines have been appointed as the members of Chhattisgarh Sanskriti Parishad (Chhattisgarh Culture Council). This council would establish a new cultural identity of Chhattisgarh at the national level and would also provide an opportunity to bring forth the talents of the state.

Baghel said that earlier Chhattisgarh was identified as a Naxalite state, but after the formation of the new government, a lot of work has been done in the last three years in the field of farmers welfare, agriculture, development of tribals, and cultural preservation-promotion, which has significantly transformed the identity of the state.

In his address to the meeting, Vice-President of Chhattisgarh Culture Council and Culture Minister Amarjeet Bhagat said that this newly-formed Culture Council would take forward the culture of Chhattisgarh in a holistic manner. Adviser to the Chief Minister Vinod Verma also addressed the programme, saying that Chhattisgarh has had a big contribution to the cultural development of Madhya Pradesh. And now Chhattisgarh Cultural Council has been constituted to take the Culture of Chhattisgarh to new heights of recognition at the national level. This will give an opportunity for the cultural talents of the state to flourish.

The meeting was attended by Khairagah University vice-chancellor Padma Shri Mamta Chandrakar, culture secretary Anbalgan P., Director Vivek Acharya along art and theatre experts.
