Chief minister Bhupesh Baghel on Saturday reached Kudargarh village of Bhatgaon
assembly constituency as a part of his meet and greet campaign. During the ‘Jan
Chaupal’, Harilal, a resident of Gadaipara, told the chief minister that a total of
25 families in his area had to travel a long distance of nearly 16 km, passing
via hilly terrain, to reach Kudargarh to get their share of ration from the
ration shop. This takes about two and a half hours. Sometimes, they even have
to take another long and difficult route of about 35 km, walking along rocky
roads, and crossing rivers and streams.
urged the Chief Minister that his village should be connected with the nearby
Gram Panchayat Ghudai so that they can get ration easily and the villagers do
not face any difficulties. To redress his problem, the chief minister immediately
instructed officials concerned to add the names of all beneficiaries in the
ration shop near their village. Urban administration and development minister Dr.
Shiv Kumar Dahariya, parliamentary secretary Paras Nath Rajwade and additional
chief secretary Subrat Sahoo were also present on the occasion.
