During Congress rule, there used to be only 60,000 kilometers of broken and damaged roads in the state, today wehave built five lakh kilometers of magnificent roads in the state,” CM Chouhan mentioned.

The ‘BIMARU’ acronym has been used to consult with Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, to suggest they’ve lagged by way of financial development, healthcare and training.

When we were back in power we worked to provide water to 67 lakh houses under the tap water scheme.””Congress did not send the list of beneficiaries of Prime Minister’s Samman Nidhi and farmers were deprived of money. When the BJP government returned, they sent a list of 80 lakh people to get the benefits of Kisan Samman Nidhi. Congress took measures to destroy and ruin the state but today they are satisfied to say that Madhya Pradesh is now moving forward rapidly,” he added.
