Chhattisgarh’s development model, based on harmony and equality, has left the Gujarat model far behind, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel declared on Tuesday.
Baghel was addressing a marathon ‘Run for Pride’ organized to mark the occasion of completion of three years of the Congress government led by him.
People of Chhattisgarh enthusiastically participated in the event organized here in the morning.
More than 20,000 runners from various age groups took part in the run. Baghel flagged off the marathon at Gandhi Udyan Chowk.
Addressing the gathering, he said: “Chhattisgarh’s development model is being discussed across the country and abroad. The Chhattisgarh model has left the Gujarat model far behind.
“Even during the Covid crisis, development works in Chhattisgarh continued uninterrupted,” Baghel added.
Baghel especially mentioned the differently abled mountaineer of Chhattisgarh, Chitrasen Sahu, for his indomitable courage.
He announced a financial aid of Rs.12.60 lakhs for his forthcoming expedition.
