ACCEDING TO villagers’ demands, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced that Hatod would be made a sub-tehsil soon. Hatod, situated 20 km from Indore, falls under Depalpur tehsil.
On becoming a sub-tehsil, all revenue-related matters of the villages falling under it would be disposed of at Hatod. This would save villagers having to visit Indore to get their work done.
“I will not relax till I make farming a profitable venture,” Chouhan declared while speaking as chief guest after unveiling the bust of late BJP leader Nirbhay Singh Patel at Hatod this afternoon.
He assured farmers they would be provided quality seed, fertiliser and subsidy of Rs 50,000 if a cultivator constructed pond on his farm. Citing reformatory steps, he said his government has made Patwari circle a unit for assessing crop damage and granting insurance instead of tehsil or district.
Chouhan also acceded to another demand of repairing the Hatod’s Higher Secondary building. He also conceded to their requirement of laying Gandhi Bhavan Road at Hatod in concrete. To their demand of regularising power supply, he said the government would take up these issues during October, which would be observed as the month of power solutions. The BJP Government has increased power production by 1,700 mw, Chouhan informed.
Chouhan elaborated on steps taken to promote girls’ education and marriages of young women from poor families. He told villagers to avoid discriminating against girls. “They are a blessing and their birth should be welcomed,” he remarked.
Indore Mayor Uma Shashi Sharma, who also spoke on the occasion, assured that Indore City buses would be plied till Hatod after an assessment.
