Raipur: General public interest should be at the center of politics – Shri Bhupesh Baghel: Chief Minister addresses seminar organized in Govardhan Math Puri on the topic of Rajdharma
Chief Minister Mr. Bhupesh Baghel addressed an online seminar organized on the subject of Rajdharma at Govardhan Math Puri today. In his address, he said that every person sitting on the post should follow Rajdharma. A well-educated, cultured, service-oriented, prosperous and healthy person and the creation of society should be the aim of politics. Today was the first day of a three-day seminar organized on the occasion of the 113th Prakatya Mahotsav of Swami Shrikarpatri Ji Mahabhag. In this, Jagadguru Shankaracharya Swami Shri Nischalananda Saraswati, including individuals and experts active in the field of religious, social and politics, will express their views for three days.
Addressing the saints and experts participating in the online seminar, Chief Minister Mr. Baghel said that the difference between monarchy and democracy is important in both systems. In politics, the system should be such that every citizen is free from fear and there is enough space for them to accept good things. He said that there has been freedom of thought in India since ancient times. Disagreements are also viewed with respect here. The diverse views of India have been respected by the whole world. There is openness in thoughts here. This openness must remain and disagreements should also find place.
Mr. Baghel said that public interest should be at the center of politics. People should get employment and fear free environment. Taking forward the glorious tradition of the country, we are starting the Godhan Nyaya Yojana in Chhattisgarh on the auspicious occasion of Hareli festival on 20 July. This is the first plan of the country and the world in which cow dung will be purchased from cattle ranchers. This will strengthen the rural economy as well as promote environmental protection and organic farming. This will help in food poisoning. The purchase of cow dung will motivate people for animal husbandry and its maintenance. This will also prevent crop grazing in the fields. He informed that cow dung would be purchased from cattle ranchers at the rate of Rs. 2 per kg. With the help of self-help groups, it will be converted into vermicompost and sold to farmers and various departments at the rate of Rs 8 per kg.
Chief Minister Mr. Baghel said that Chhattisgarh’s economy did not slow down even during the global epidemic Kovid-19. Several steps were taken to maintain the purchasing power of all sections including laborers, farmers and tribals in the state. 1900 crore wages were paid under MNREGA. Under the Rajiv Gandhi Kisan Nyay Yojana, funds were transferred to the accounts of farmers producing paddy and sugarcane. The forest produce procurement continued in the forest areas.
