CM to tour Assembly segments from May 4

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel will be on a statewide tour of all 90 Assembly segments of the state from May 4.

During the tour, he will seek direct feedback from people about the implementation of his government’s welfare schemes.

Earlier, the tour was scheduled to start on May 2. But keeping in view the state level ‘Mati Pujan’ celebration on Akshay Tritiya, the tour has been extended to May 4.

The Chief Minister’s campaign is crucial for the ruling Congress in the wake of Assembly polls due next year.

Baghel’s first destination will be the tribal-dominated Balrampur district in Surguja division, a government official said.

“Baghel will make surprise visits to any three villages in each constituency and take stock of civic facilities available there. He will also review the status of implementation of government schemes and the ongoing development works,” the official said.

Baghel will carry out inspection of tehsil offices, police stations, district offices, schools, Anganwadis and health care centres.

He will interact with villagers, eminent people and public representatives.
