Bhopal, Feb 26

Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that we should seek poor’s blessings by providing tasty and nutritious food to the poor. Urban bodies and voluntary organizations engaged in this work certainly deserve to be lauded. One can find Narayana by feeding food to the hungry and water to the thirsty.

Chief Minister Chouhan was virtually dedicating 100-new and well equipped kitchen centers in the state under Deendayal Antyodaya Rasoi Yojana at Minto Hall today.

Chief Minister Chouhan said that food, clothing, shelter, education and medicine are basic needs. It is also said that Bhookhe bhajan na hoi Gopala. Anna hi Brahma hai. Kitchen centers are useful for the labourers and others who come to cities leaving behind their villages to fend for themselves and their children.

The Chief Minister said that the scheme that started from the year 2017 should be extended. He said that apart from the district headquarters of the state, major religious tours have been added to the town plan. Apart from this, kitchen centers started in other towns and cities should also be expanded. This will be an important step for humanity.

Chief Minister Chouhan said that the Madhya Pradesh government had made food arrangements for migrant labourers passing through Madhya Pradesh from one place to another even during the Corona period. The government has launched Sambal and many other schemes, which provide food grain, treatment and financial support in the condition of an accident to the poor. Two crore Ayushman cards have been distributed for the treatment of the poor in the state. In this, treatment facility of up to Rs 5 lakh is available to the person in identified hospitals. All the poor will get a Pakka Makan in the next three years. About 3 lakh street vendors of the state have been provided interest-free loan at the rate of Rs. 10 thousand per beneficiary to develop their small business.

Chief Minister Chouhan said that one gets blessings by providing food and assistance to the poor. This work should be done in all ways at the government, social institution and individual level.

Chief Minister Chouhan congratulated Chhatarpur district administration for assistance by social organization in the modernization of kitchen center. Similarly, the Morena Municipal Corporation was also congratulated for the regular operation of the kitchen during the Corona period.
