Chouhan said that Madhya Pradesh government has implemented Public Service Guarantee Act in the state for timely redressal of public grievances. The government is making efforts to ensure that people do not have to take the trouble to visit government offices for solution to their problems and for their works. They should be able to get their work done from the comfort of their home. The government is providing many services to the citizens on the mobile itself.
Chouhan said that Madhya Pradesh leads in the implementation of many schemes in the country. Madhya Pradesh tops in the schemes including Cleanliness campaign, Swamitva Yojana, Street Vendor Scheme, Pradhan Mantri Awas. The growth rate of Madhya Pradesh at the current market price is the highest in India at 19.7 percent. The share of Madhya Pradesh in GDP has increased to 4.6 percent.

Kothi Palace will be developed as a heritage building.

Active efforts should be made in this regard.
Chouhan said that now I am also the thele wala Mama. I go out with a handcart to collect toys and other materials for Anganwadi children. Let us all take a pledge to not let any child remain malnourished in the coming one year. Everyone will make their full contribution for Anganwadis. On auspicious occasions like birthdays, marriage anniversaries, we should visit Anganwadis and distribute milk, fruits to children.
