CHIEF MINISTER Shivraj Singh Chauhan today laid the foundation stone of the Reliable Honey Centre at village Bori Dongri in Sehore district, 62 kilometres from Bhopal.

Addressing a crowd of 7,000 people drawn from 30 villages of the region the Chief Minister said that he would change the ‘taqdeer’ and ‘tasvir’ of the area in the next three years.

The Chief Minister lauded the efforts of the Reliable Group in setting up the Honey centre and said the centre would generate employment for people of the area.

He also said efforts such as this would help Madhya Pradesh shake off the ‘BIMARU’ tag in the next three years and bring it at par with developed states. The function was presided over by Minister Panchayat, Rural Development and Public Relations Narendra Singh Tomar.

Earlier, Reliable Group of Industries Chairman Sikandar Hafiz Khan, giving details of the project, said the centre would have a capacity to produce 500 kilograms of honey per day, which could be upgraded to 1,500 kilograms per day.

He recalled the long association he has had with the region and said that he was keen to contribute for development of the area.

Continuing further Sikander Hafiz Khan said the centre would generate jobs for 4,000 people. Khan said his endeavour would be to ensure that Madhya Pradesh emerged as the top honey-producing State in the country.

Sikander Hafiz Khan was all praise for sacrifice of MLA from Budhni Assembly segment Rajendra Singh. Khan felt that Rajendra Singh’s sacrifice would usher the entire region into a new era of development. The vote of thanks was proposed by Director of the Reliable Multimedia and Enterprises Private Ltd Agha Abdul Qayyum.
