Shivraj Singh woos tribal populace with house, power promise

Bhopal: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday, while addressing a tribal farmer rally in Alirajpur district, announced that his government would provide affordable houses to all homeless tribal people in Madhya Pradesh by 2020.

Referring to the Union Government scheme “housing for all” launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January last, Chouhan assured of 24-hour power supply to all tribal shelters and hutments.

Earlier, the chief minister laid foundation stone for Rs 582 crore Narmada link irrigation project in village Jhandana. Chouhan’s meeting was crucial in view of ensuing Lok Sabha by-poll in Jhabua-Ratlam constituency, of which Alirajpur district is an important tribal belt.

The Lok Sabha seat got vacated after the demise of senior BJP leader Dilip Singh Bhuria, who defeated Congress stalwart Kantilal Bhuria. BJP got hold of this seat after a long time and now party leaders want to retain this by any means.

Chouhan further assured that the state government would spend Rs 100-crore on development of Alirajpur district. He reiterated his commitment for 10 per cent subsidy on loan to farmers.
