Raipur: We won’t let Nagarnar Steel Plant get into private hands. We won’t let it sell under any circumstances whether it is run by the State or the Central Government. The Chief Minister said so in his address during the Bhent Mulaqat Program held in Nangur.
He said that he has always stayed connected with the interests and well-being of the residents of Nagarnar. He has also protested and participated in Padyatras. The Chief Minister also added that the Nagarnar Plant Management has to employ our daughters. During the program, the residents of Nagarnar requested the Chief Minister to open a college there. The Chief Minister said that Plant Management will be given the responsibility to open the college. As they have taken the land from our people, they must build the college. The Chief Minister supervised the implementation of Government schemes in Nangur. The villagers said that they are reaping all the benefits of the schemes of the State Government.
“Had never seen Rs. One Lakh in life, made a deal of Rs. 12 Lakh in this season this year” – Suman Baghel, a beneficiary of Van Dhan Yojana, told the Chief Minister. She added that the scheme has helped in providing reasonably good rates for forest produce, which is immensely benefitting the collectors. We go to Haat Bazaars and make purchases from collectors at Government rates. They are delighted at getting such good prices. We had never seen even Rs. 1 Lakh in our lives but are now making a deal of Rs. 12 Lakh in one season. We are buying Harad, Behera, Tamarind, and Giloy in large quantities. Earlier, tamarind was sold at Rs. 25 in Bazaars, which has now increased to Rs. 35.
