Chouhan thanks PM for free ration, vaccination

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has expressed gratitude towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the decisions by the Government of India to conduct Covid vaccination and free ration distribution to the poor till Diwali.

Chouhan said that this is a historic decision. This will bring uniformity and speed in the vaccination campaign in the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi. Chouhan was addressing the members of the Council of Ministers before the Cabinet meeting in Mantralaya. The meeting started with the recitation of Vande Mataram.

Chouhan said that according to the decision of Prime Minister Modi, the people in the age group of 18 to 44 years will be vaccinated free of cost by the Central Government.

Also, the entire vaccination campaign will be conducted by the Government of India. The States will continue to get the vaccine on the basis of availability in proportion to their population and requirement.

With this, the vaccination campaign will run systematically and the work will also get its pace. Chouhan said that Prime Minister Shri Modi also deserves praise and greetings for the fact, that earlier, vaccine for any new disease was manufactured far from the country and it was not even available in the country, but India got the swadeshi vaccine due to the continuous efforts of our scientists under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi.

Chouhan said that Prime Minister Modi has taken care of the poor. Under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Yojana by the Government of India, now free ration will be given till November. Chouhan on behalf of the Council of Ministers and the people of the State thanked Prime Minister Shri Modi for these decisions.

The Chief Minister said that in view of the continuous decline in the prices of summer moong, it has been decided to procure moong at the support price. The registration work is also starting from today June 8. This is an important decision for the farmers. Agriculture Minister Kamal Patel thanked Chief Minister Chouhan on behalf of the farmers of the State.
