C’garh following Gandhi’s path of Gram Suraj: Baghel

Monday, 07 October 2019 | Staff Reporter | DHAMTARI

nChief Minister on Sunday claimed that the Chhattisgarh government is following the path shown by Mahatma Gandhi by adopting Gram Suraj under Narva Garva Ghurva Badi (NGGB) scheme.

The CM was addressing a public meeting at Ramleela Maidan in Bhakhara town of the Dhamtari district while participating in the third day function of week-long foot-march being organised to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

Speaking on the occasion, Baghel reiterated his commitment to boost rural economy and encouraged the villagers to increase production of paddy.

The excess paddy could be used to produce ethanol bio fuel and soon the state is going to establish a plant for the same, he said.

Terming stray cattle a big problem, Baghel said the ‘Gauthans’ (cowsheds) would certainly solve the problem generated by them as they would be restricted in the sheds which would prevent them grazing the crop and stop them from becoming g a cause of accidents on the streets while roaming freely, he said.

Citing the figures that around 35 lakh stray cattle are freely roaming on the streets across the state, Baghel said the cowsheds would also help generate employment for rural youth as apart from dairy products cow-dung could be used in preparing vermicompost. 

He also unveiled a statue of Father of the Nation on this occasion and dedicated to the public welfare and development works worth Rs 28.22 crore.
