chouhan: the government launches a transport program for rural areas | Bhopal News

Bhopal: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday launched the “rural transport project” in Kagpur village in Vidisha district. Speaking on the occasion, Chouhan said that although a road network has been laid out in every village in the state, good transport services are still not available for commuters in rural areas. The state government is launching a rural transport service which will gradually be extended to the whole of Madhya Pradesh. From now on, the buses will run from village to village and the commuters will travel comfortably on the buses.
Chouhan said carriers refrain from using buses on short routes because they have to incur losses. The government has decided to provide them with assistance and facilities to run buses on these routes, so that they make a profit. It is a unique rural transport system. It will be extended to remote villages, he said.
He also gave the operating certificates of the rural transport service to the drivers. He also executed “bhoomi pujan” development works worth several crores. He distributed the moong to students in primary and secondary classes. Chouhan also honored Madhya Pradesh ball shooting players who were selected for international competition during the ceremony. Chouhan said the government has decided that water from the Sanjay Sagar dam will be supplied by pipeline to some villages in this region at a cost of Rs 208 crore 94 lakh. Water will also be supplied to downstream villages also through stop dams etc. Efforts will be made to provide water to each village. Also, tap water will be supplied to each house under the “Na Jal Yojana”. He said everyone will have a pucca house. In Vidisha district, 83,000 people will be sanctioned “Pradhan Mantri Awas under the Awas Plus program. He also talked about doubling farmers’ incomes and increasing women’s self-help group incomes.
Chouhan said elections for the panchayat and local bodies would soon be held in the state. In places where the election will take place without opposition, special facilities will be granted by the government. These local panchayats and organizations will benefit from all the programs. Chouhan said everyone should cooperate in running the anganwadi. Farmers should provide free food grains. Revenue and Transport Minister Govind Singh Rajput gave details of the scheme.
