No citizen of Chhattisgarh should go to sleep on a empty stomach; lack of money should never be the reason for anyone to be deprived of food. Me and my government wants development to reach the last man standing in the queue. Even the youth of the core tribal areas should have access to the latest technology so that they contribute to the state’s development. I want women to become independent and self-reliant, so that they contribute to the state’s development with their full potential. I want every section of Chhattisgarh to grow and develop; I pledge to create a new Chhattisgarh. Me and my government are dedicated towards achieving our goals and have launched a number of public welfare schemes to fulfill our objectives.
