Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that in view of Covid-19, all departments will play an important role in reviving economic prosperity and bringing back the economy on track. For this, it is necessary that every minister should discuss and form a draft of the role of his department in Atmanirbhar Madhya Pradesh. According to this roadmap, the monthly, quarterly and half yearly targets should be worked out. Ministers should also conduct departmental review. This review is to be conducted in the month of July itself. Even after this, a review will be conducted every month.
Presiding over the meeting of the Cabinet, Chief Minister Chouhan said that in order to give shape to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s mantra and his call for Atmanirbhar Bharat, the ministers should make efforts to implement them at the departmental level. For this, discussions can be held with scholars, experts and leading organizations. The role of the department should be deemed important after receiving their suggestions. Chief Minister Chouhan said that on July 22 and 23, he himself will hold one-to-one discussion with the ministers.
