From the point of view of tourism, the state has got a new identity in the country and abroad. Transportation arrangements have improved. People’s welfare or social justice people’s trust and faith has increased in the state. Saints and seers who symbolize our faith, religion, public awakening and inspiration are also being taken care of in the same way as other people-communities. Through the Sant Samagam, the Adhyatma Department has given a clear message that by respecting the saints and seers that no class should remain untouched by the public welfare policy of the state’s Kamal Nath government. The Adhyatma Department was formed by merging the Department of Religion, Religious Trust and Happiness in the state so that our secular structure becomes stronger with our faith. Through proper and all-round development of religious places easy and better facilities will be ensured to our religionists. The honorarium of the priests of government-maintained temples has been increased three times in the state.

Satna, Panna, Katni, Umaria, Shahdol and Anuppur districts are coming in the proposed route of Ram Vangaman Path. Major shrines of these places will be renovated, preserved and developed. Rivers, springs and forests will be developed for tourism by keeping them pollution free and providing proper public facilities. Media is considered the fourth pillar of democracy. Our journalists are determined to make a significant contribution in strengthening democracy and the Kamal Nath government is continuously working for the safety and well-being of journalists.

Former Prime Minister Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi had taken up steps effectively 35 years ago so that science and technology could be used for the rapid development of the country and society. Kamal Nath government is working fast in this direction. Many effective steps like development of Science City in Bhopal, establishment of sub-regional science centres in Ujjain and Jabalpur, all services being made online are positive efforts in this direction. The Kamal Nath government has made efforts to fulfill its commitments taking into consideration the need for comprehensive and positive thinking for the development of Madhya Pradesh. Our farmers who provide us food were frightened and distressed by the unjust and violent behavior of the previous government against them. The Kamal Nath government gave widespread relief to the farmers through its Jai Kisan Fasal Rin Mafi yojna. It also introduced comprehensive schemes for agriculture and farmer welfare. The Mukhya Mantri Krishak Jeevan Kalyan Yojana has instilled confidence in farmers to deal with sudden and unexpected situations. Apparently, ever since the Kamal Nath government has come to power, Madhya Pradesh has prospered. We are working with full determination so that Madhya Pradesh becomes better and happier. Public welfare is our objective. (The author is Madhya Pradesh Minister of Public Relations, Legal-Legislative Affairs, Science and Technology, Adhyatma, Aviation.) ……..P. C.
