Bhopal, March 29: Every possible opportunity would be made available to girls and women to move ahead in society said Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday at a Jan-Samvad in Nandner village. He said that by giving reservation in jobs and local elections to women, they are being helped to become self-reliant.

Chief Minister said that the Narmada Seva Yatra was initiated to make people aware of the ill-effects of addiction, importance of cleanliness and to maintain respect of girls. The basic aim of Narmada Seva Yatra is to make people aware towards water and environment conservation.

Saplings would be planted on both banks of the Narmada river on a large scale. All liquor shops on the banks within 5 km radius would be closed down from April 1. Sewage treatment plants would be set up in the cities on the banks of the Narmada and arrangements would be made to stop the flow of dirty water into the river, said Chouhan.

Earlier on the arrival of the Narmada Seva Yatra at Jait village, Chouhan praised the different departments’ officers and employees for arrangements to make the programme a success. He said that officers-employees would have to make constant efforts to fulfil the objectives of the Narmada Yatra in future also. He expressed gratitude towards people’s representatives and sants for the success of the Yatra at all other villages including Jait.
