Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said there is no dearth of money for public welfare and development works.
In the new excise policy, a moral ban has been imposed on consuming alcohol, he said.
The consumption of liquor in public places has been banned, he said.
This is a big step in terms of preventing accidents and social reform. He said that I see Uma Bharti as a mother, sister, daughter and a friend, he said.
I shall never disappoint Didi. Didi and I have worked together against the atrocities on mothers, sisters and daughters, he said.
The result of this is Ladli Laxmi and Mukhya Mantri Ladli Bahna Yojana, he said.
Chouhan participated in his felicitation ceremony at Ravindra Bhavan for bringing excise policy in line with the respect, security and interests of the Matri Shakti (mother power) of the state.
In the function, Chouhan was welcomed by former Chief Minister Sushri Uma Bharti by offering Angvastra, showering flowers and presenting a congratulatory letter. The function was conducted by Mata, Beti, Bai Smriti Shikshan Samiti.
Chouhan said that I have been working with Uma Didi for years. Didi works for the welfare of the world. She never tolerates injustice. She is a social reformer.
She is continuously working for de-addiction, protection of cows and promotion of organic farming. Her voice has presence of Saraswati.
Chouhan said that under the Mukhya Mantri Ladli Behna Yojana, Rs. 1,000 per month will be transferred to the accounts of the sisters.
He said that I will always work on Didi’s suggestions. I have always received Didi’s blessings for good works and will continue to do so in the future.
He said it is because of her inspiration that I have been able to do this work. Better work were conducted for the welfare of daughters and sisters.
Former Chief Minister Uma Bharti said that Chief Minister Chouhan has done a historic work by bringing a new excise policy.
For this she thanked the Chief Minister.
She said I am very happy with the new policy. I have self-satisfaction.
The Chief Minister has fulfilled my heart’s desire. Such excise policy is not there in any state of India, she said.
In the new policy, commendable work has been done to close the ahatas. In the new policy, you cannot drive or walk on the road after drinking alcohol, she said.
This policy will create such a situation that people will be forced to give up alcohol. This policy will prove to be a milestone in maintaining the dignity of the society, she said.
Bharti said it is a big responsibility of the people’s representatives along with the administration to follow the policy.
She said that Madhya Pradesh has gone ahead of Punjab and Haryana in terms of agriculture. Organic farming will be effective for the protection of mother cow.
Member of Parliament VD Sharma said that the state government is working to move ahead on the idea of Antyodaya of Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay. The new excise policy will pave the way for social change.
He said this work has become possible under the efficient guidance of CM Chouhan.
He said that no stone is being left unturned to make the state prosperous.
The Ken-Betwa link project will prove important in the development of the state. Prime Minister Modi, Chief Minister Chouhan and former Chief Minister Uma Bharti have contributed significantly in this.
Chouhan inaugurated the ceremony by lighting the lamp.
The sisters of the organising committee welcomed the guests with garlands. Ladli Laxmi sisters, women and citizens were present in large numbers.
