Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that it is necessary for the people of the state to be aware and active for saving electricity.
The state government is giving Rs 22,500 crore for electricity subsidy. If people are aware and cooperate in saving electricity, then about 5,000 crore rupees can be saved. This will also help in improving the environment. It is necessary to conduct energy literacy campaign intensively in the state. We have to sensitize people to save electricity at our home, office and work place.
Chouhan said that water and migration are the main problems in Tikamgarh. For this, the state government is committed to make permanent solutions to the problems by making immediate and long-term plans. A permanent solution to the problem of water can be found by raising the ground water level with the implementation of activities of Amrit Sarovar, Jalabhishek Abhiyan. By activating women self-help groups in the Aajeevika Mission (livelihood mission), connecting them with self-employment will prove to be effective in controlling migration.
