CHIEF MINISTER Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday said the Bharatiya Janata Party is expected to take a decision in a day or two on the Assembly constituency from where he would seek election.
“The constituency from where I will contest is likely to be decided by the party in a day or two,” Chouhan, who took over as chief minister over two months ago and is required to become an MLA by the end of May, told reporters here. The decision of the party in selecting the assembly seat would be acceptable to him, he said.
“However, it is Vidisha where I get a sound sleep,” he said, adding that the district still remained backward as no development had taken place here in last 56 years and the next budget would have provisions for its progress.
Stating that steps have been taken for decentralisation of the administrative process, the Chief Minister said he would hear public grievances and try to solve them through the newly launched 'Samadhan Online' programme on the first Tuesday of every month.
Ministers have been empowered to effect transfers in their respective department as part of efforts to tone up administration, Chouhan added. Approving Rs 4 crore each for an under-bridge and for low-lying slums in Vidisha, he said there is provision of construction of a stadium also in the budget.
He also stressed clearance of Bina oil refinery to ensure employment to the unemployed and invited industrialists to set up new units in Vidisha adding that the problems of SM Dyechem employees would also be solved soon. He said the single window system would be implemented in the entire state very soon.
In reply to a question relating to Betwa water purification, Chouhan said after a discussion with the PHE and municipal officials within 15 days the treatment plant under the campaign would be started.
On the construction of wide and good quality roads in the State, he said the State Government was on the lookout of good and efficient contractors for the assignment who will be trained first.
To solve the power crisis in the State, small power projects and hydropower projects were being set up, he added. Chouhan said that in the next three years, several schemes to irrigate nearly eight lakh hectare land would be launched and a series of stop-dams would be constructed under the Jalabhishek Abhiyan.
The Baha-Sagadh Yojana would be given the final shape, he added.
