A cell catering to non-resident Indians (NRIs) will be opened in the state, said chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on the concluding day of Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Gujarat on Friday.

Chouhan urged all the NRIs and citizens to visit Madhya Pradesh even if they are not planning to invest in the state.

The chief minister said the state welcomes everyone with “open arms and made everyone feel at home”. Later, he also tweeted about his priorities for the NRIs.

Chouhan pointed out that MP’s industrial policy is investor-friendly. The chief minister said he himself meets investors on Mondays with other officers.

Taking a leaf from Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi’s Make in India, Chouhan said to ensure its success, the slogan Make in Madhya Pradesh has been coined, inviting all the investors to the state.

Chouhan also made a special mention of tourist attractions in the state in his address. He said that state boasts of three World Heritage monuments. The entire address of the CM is part of the concluding session that was presided over by home minister Rajnath Singh. Nine CMs participated in the same session.

Once notorious for dacoits, now the state has managed to eliminate all of them. There is no labour unrest and a single-door policy instead of a single-window for investors has been put into place, the chief minister said.

The CM highlighted the improvement in the power supply and jump in growth rate.

Simhastha is going to be held next year after 12 years. Apart from ‘shahi snan’ with traditional rituals during this Mahakumbh at Ujjain, this Simhastha will also give messages of humanity, environmental improvement, saving girls, basic unity and morality in all religions to the world.
