Bhopal, Feb 9
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that it is the duty of the state government to ensure that rice millers are not harmed, farmers get their rights and the right quality rice is available to common people. Every effort will be made by the state government to protect the interests of the rice millers of the state. The Central Government will also be made aware of their problems.
