Independence Day - 2019: Independence Day Message of Honorable Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel - Police Parade Ground, Raipur

Congratulations to Jummo Sian, Dai-Didi, Sangi-Jahunaria, Noni-Babu Mana L'Suraji Tihar in the holy Bera of Chhattisgarh.
I salute all the freedom fighters who fought for over a century to liberate Bharatmata from the chains of slavery. Amar Shaheed Gandsingh, Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh, Mangal Pandey, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Ramprasad Bismil, Ashfaq Ulla Khan, Rani Laxmi Bai and thousands of people of every caste and religion were liberated from the country. Thousands of people played an important role from the freedom struggle to the Navnirman of India.
Today, Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Abulakalam Azad to Veer Gundadhur of Chhattisgarh, Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla, Thakur Pyarelal Singh , Dr. Khoobchand Baghel, Pt. Sunderlal Sharma, Barrister Chedilal, Yatiyatan Lal, Dr. Radhabai, Pt. Vamanrao Lakhé, Mahant Laxminarayan Das, Anantharam Barchiha, Maul No Abdul Rauf Khan, Hanuman Singh, Rohini by Prgniha, Kekti by Baghel, is to remember Mrs. Bella by as many famous and numerous anonymous Karmayoddhaon and salute them. We are proud to be the descendants of these freedom fighters. I request that we get the blessings of the people of that generation who are among us today. I would ask the youth, the children, to meet the freedom fighters living in their village, city and connect themselves with that dignified generation.
Brothers and sisters, India can be reached to the summit only by remembering the thinking, thoughts and actions of great leaders. India has got the honor of the ideal democracy and great republic of the world due to the unity between different communities, castes, religions and societies. Only saving this solidarity will save the country. The relationship of heritage and development has to be saved. Standing on the cusp of the 72nd anniversary of independence, we have to see where we will stand the test of the ideals, values ​​of the nation-makers when we celebrate the 75th anniversary.
Mahatma Gandhi had said - "India has attained political independence, but it is yet to achieve socio-economic and moral freedom."
The powers that had removed Bapu from us in the few months of independence, the same powers want to take away Bapu's dreams from India. The hearts and minds of the people are entangled in their basic needs and emotional issues, there is a need to understand such conspiracies deeply, then only we will be able to keep the value of freedom.
Our biggest priority is Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes, Farmers, Villagers, Women, Workers, Small Businessmen, Youth and that new generation, on whose shoulders tomorrow will be the responsibility of the State and the country. Everyone thought that after the formation of a new state, they would get plenty of opportunities, resources and participation in their Chhattisgarh, but they were deprived of all these things in the last one and a half decades. Our government decided to give respectable prices of paddy, Chhattisgarh Mahtari's biggest hope, as soon as it arrived. Concrete steps like Rs. 25 per quintal of paddy, waiver of short term agricultural loans of all farmers, waiver of irrigation tax, one time settlement, facilitating the farmers to avail loans for fresh farming. In the history of any state, the initiative of the government would not have given such a huge amount to the farmers in six months. This time at zero percent interest rate, farmers will also meet the target of giving maximum loans. It has been decided by the state government to increase the amount of compensation on the acquisition of the farmers' land for the development plans, from double to fourfold. In this way, we have taken meaningful steps to provide financial freedom to the farmers.

Our great constitution makers have given India the gift of "Cooperative Federalism", that is, cooperative federalism. In which the relationship between Center and States is defined. This is the blessing of Dr. Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar. Due to this belief, our government will make better use of every scheme received from the Center for the farmers and other sections of its state. It is our responsibility and right to put our demands vigorously before the Central Government for the rights and interests of the people of the state. Even though it has not got its return yet and the support price of paddy is just Rs 65. Increase of supply per quintal has been done, but in every situation we farmers will get 25 hundred rupees. We will provide the price of paddy at the rate of per quintal and will continue to do everything possible to empower the public.
We have adopted a policy of moving forward with our heritage, which exemplifies the initiative to give new life to the economy and environment of villages through 'Narva, Garwa, Ghurwa, Bari'. In short time, we have selected 1 thousand 28 drains for 'Narva' development. Apart from this, through regular process of water resources development, about 1 thousand crore rupees. Tender process has been initiated to speed up 223 schemes of cost.
We are making 3 to 5 acres of undisputed land in every gram panchayat for Gauthan for the prosperity and contribution of 'Garwa'. In order to construct about 19 hundred Gothanas, more than one thousand Gothanas have been released. Work on one thousand 560 pastures has also been approved. Gauthans used to be the center of our rural culture but now villages will also become centers of economic development.
Declaration -1
'The participation of the society will certainly be ensured for the smooth arrangement of the Gothan. 10 thousand rupees per month will be provided to the Gowthan committees on behalf of our government, so that other arrangements will be made including giving honorarium to the shepherds working in Gowthan. '
We will also make 'Ghurwa' the center of such products, which have their own economic importance, by linking them with the cleanliness and environment of the villages. More than one lakh 34 thousand 'Badis' have been surveyed, whose upgrades will also provide nutritional value in every household and means of increasing income. Our plans are indeed a call for freedom from poverty.
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGA) is the representative scheme of our ideology. I appeal that more and more people should be given employment through this scheme and there should be no payment in kind.
In order to provide equal opportunities for development and dignified livelihood to Scheduled Tribes and Scheduled Castes, we have taken major steps out of the box. Neither the land nor the ideal rehabilitation policy was followed, nor the farmers were being heard in the land of farmers taken in the name of setting up industries in Lohandiguda. We decided to return the land as soon as we arrived and the work which was started from 26th January this year has now been completed.
You will be surprised to know that for years, the right to lease forest rights was being beaten, but our residents of Abujhmad were kept away from this process. We have taken a special initiative to get Abuzhmadis their rights. The applications which were rejected under the 'Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers Act' are being reviewed again so that the eligible beneficiaries can get justice. At the same time, the campaign to give community forest rights has been started, under which leases of 8 thousand 220 acres have been issued in 9 villages of Kondagaon district. The number of authorities has been increased from 2 to 3 for quick resolution of the problems of tribal dominated areas. Along with this, the chairperson of the newly formed Bastar, Surguja, Madhya Pradesh Development Authorities has been given to the local MLA in place of the Chief Minister and two local vice presidents have also been appointed.
Indravati, the life-giving river of Bastar, herself is in danger and has been pleading for years to protect her life. Our government finally heard this request and decided to set up the 'Indravati Development Authority'. Mahanadi, Shivnath, Kelo, Hasdev Bango, Kharun will be protected from pollution through local bodies.
Many Scheduled Tribe families of Bastar have been harassed socially, financially and mentally due to criminal cases. To provide relief to them, our government has constituted a committee headed by retired judge of the Supreme Court and initiated the proceedings.
Pre The discipleship of students residing in matric hostels, residential schools and ashrams has been increased to one thousand rupees. Has been done every month. Earlier, making a caste certificate was nothing short of a harassment, now we have made a new arrangement that along with the birth of the child, the caste certificate will also be issued to the child based on the caste certificate of the father.
In order to give preference to local youth in government jobs, 'Junior Staff Selection Board' is being formed in Bastar and Surguja. Like Bastar and Surguja divisions, Bilaspur division has also been extended to 31 December 2021 by arranging district cadre for the recruitment of third and fourth class posts. The youth of extremely backward tribes of the state will be given the benefit of direct recruitment in government service.

'I am very happy to say that the Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and Other Backward Classes of our State have been asserting their rights in a very peaceful manner. It is our duty to protect their constitutional rights. Taking a big step in this direction, I announce today that now 32 percent reservation will be provided to Scheduled Tribes, 13 percent to Scheduled Castes and 27 percent to Other Backward Classes.
Tendupatta collection is a major source of livelihood in forest areas
Medium, so we have tendupatta collection remuneration rate of 25 hundred. Rs 4 thousand per standard bag. Done. Storage remuneration distributed in the year 2019 is almost one and a half times more than in the previous year. We have increased the number of forest produce to be purchased from the minimum support price from 7 to 15 and a bonus has been arranged.
'The movement of elephants in Chhattisgarh sometimes leads to loss of life and property. There is a big reason for this, elephants are not able to get the facility to live in their favorite place. We have also taken a serious thought in this direction and today I announce 'Lemru Elephant Reserve'. This will be the first of its kind in the world, 'Elephant Reserve', where the elephants will become permanent habitat, their movement to other places will be curbed and the damage due to it and the state's contribution towards biodiversity and wildlife registered. Will happen.
Brothers and sisters, we believe that malnutrition today is more threatened than any war in the world. In fact, malnutrition invades the foundation of new generations and if our future citizens are malnourished, weak and sick, it will have a negative impact on overall productivity. The most alarming facts have been revealed in the latest report of NITI Aayog, according to which 37.60 percent children under 5 years of age in Chhattisgarh suffer from malnutrition and 41.50 percent of mothers aged 15 to 49 suffer from anemia.
We have made a new beginning by providing gram, fruits, eggs, etc. for protein-rich nutrition in tribal areas, but in fact, the state needs to take decisive steps to get rid of malnutrition and anemia. At present, a 'pilot project' has been started in select panchayats of Bastar, Dantewada, Korba, Surguja, Korea and some other districts, under which nutritious food is being provided free of cost to every village panchayat as per the identified list.

Now with full preparation this Mahayagya will be started in the entire state on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on 2 October 2019. The funds required for the campaign can be raised from the basic amount of DMF, CSR, Panchayats or from the allocation available with the development authorities. Participation of reputed charitable institutions, public representatives, NGOs, media groups and other able people working in the districts will be ensured in this charitable work.
The contribution of Anganwadi workers and assistants in the care of sisters, daughters and newborns is commendable, so we have decided to increase their honorarium. Action has been initiated to develop ten thousand Anganwadi centers as nursery schools. Construction of two thousand Anganwadi buildings has been approved. For the sake of nutrition, better implementation of schemes like Mukhyamantri Amrit Yojana, Mahtari Jatan Yojana, Suchitan Chaupal etc.
It is also our heritage to empower the people with various democratic and fundamental rights. All the constitutionally agreed rights of the people in India today are due to our great leaders. Our government will strengthen all rights like education, information, employment, food security as well as empowerment of panchayats, urban bodies. In this direction, we have not only fulfilled the promise of giving 35 kg of rice, but by rationalizing it, an additional 7 kg of rice per member from the sixth member, APL families will also get Rs 10. It has been decided to supply rice in kg. It has been decided to give rice, sugar, salt, gram, kerosene to the ration card holder families from PDS as well as two kg jaggery every month to Antyodaya and priority families in Bastar division. In view of the difficulties faced by the people in saving the five year old ration cards, a campaign has been launched to renew 58 lakh 54 thousand ration cards.
Bpl In order to facilitate the families to get their hands yellow, we have increased the scope of assistance under the 'Mukhyamantri Kanya Vivah Yojana' to 15 thousand rupees. 25 thousand in place of Is done. Assistance given under the 'Disabled Marriage Promotion Scheme' is Rs 50 thousand. Increased from Rs one lakh to Rs. Has been done. Under the 'Matru Vandana Yojana', pregnant and lactating mothers get Rs. 5000. Assistance of Rs.
It is our responsibility to provide all the facilities with good education to the new generation so that we can perform the duty of preparing capable and capable future citizens, so we have started the change from school level. After two decades, 15 thousand regular teachers are being recruited. New technologies have been introduced to make education interesting, which we have called the "Black Board to Key Board" campaign.
A large number of educational and non-academic posts are being recruited in colleges, advertisements have also been released. New colleges are being opened in places where there were no colleges. Girls College in Balod, Model Degree Colleges in Dantewada, Kondagaon, Bijapur, Sukma, Narayanpur, Mahasamund and Korba, Agricultural colleges will be opened in Village Marra (District-Durg), Saja (District-Bemetra). From this academic session 14 new pharmacy colleges and one 'Diploma Fine Art and Communication' institution have been started. For the first time in the country, 'Data Science and Artificial Intelligence' course has been started at Triple IT, Nava Raipur.
There is a lot of scope for polishing the sports talent in the state by giving proper training, but due to lack of proper initiative and organization, the brilliance of the talents was reduced to its own zone. Now we have 'Sports Authority', different features of different zones
It has been decided to establish Sports School and Sports Academy on the basis. 55 sports coaches will be recruited in the state. Synthetic hockey ground has been launched in Bilaspur.
We have taken care of the health of all under the 'Universal Health Scheme' in the state, for which various health units are being upgraded. Many new facilities are being introduced. Special neonatal intensive care units have been started in Narayanpur, Sukma and Kondagaon. This year 17 maternal and child hospitals will be started.

Different types of free screening done to expectant mothers
Apart from the facility, many free facilities will be introduced for various patients, such as sicklecell examination, dialysis, pathology examination etc. 'Stemi Model' will be established for the treatment of heart disease at Pt Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Raipur.
Under the 'Mukhyamantri Haat-Bazar Clinic Scheme', the facility of health checkup, treatment and drug distribution is being expanded in tribal dominated areas, which will benefit especially the Scheduled Tribes living in remote areas.
I want to tell that before the coming of our government there was lack of availability of electricity in the state, which was overcome by various efforts. According to the report of 'Central Electricity Authority' working under the Government of India last month, now the reliability of power supply in Chhattisgarh has become the highest in the country.
We have launched a massive campaign to improve power supply, due to which unprecedented work has been done in just 6 months.
It was decided to complete the construction of 316 new sub-stations at a rapid pace, of which 280 sub-stations have been completed. Work has been done to install 210 new transformers in old sub-stations and to increase capacity. The transmission capacity of electricity has increased from 5 percent to 7 thousand 790 MVA in just six months. Has become, which is a record in itself. Such arrangements have been made to provide electricity to Chhattisgarh in Surguja and to solve the connectivity problem in Gariaband, which has been waiting for years. Our government has continued the scheme of providing free electricity to the farmers, whose benefit is being provided to 5 lakh farmers. Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe farmers are exempted from electricity bill on entire consumption.
Chhattisgarh is a power-producing state, but it has not created many employment opportunities. Consumption of electricity is considered as a measure of development, so we want to make the state more productive as well as a state so that the local people get the benefit of power development.
In Chhattisgarh, Bhilai Steel Plant, NTPC, NMDC, SECL, BALCO and all Public Sector Undertakings, State Electricity Board etc. were established with the policies of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. On the initiative of Pt. Nehru, it is the duty of the new generation to keep proper information about all the major centers of education like AIIMS, IITs, big dams, big roads, Indian Railways, aviation facilities, agricultural universities and nuclear and space research institutions. Think from where did the slave country, which did not make needle, started its development journey and how it reached the summit and handed over the command in our hands. Has any model of socio-economic, community, educational development like Bhilai Steel Plant been able to become another and if not, what right do we have to underestimate the contribution of our great forefathers.
Today, with this auspicious occasion and this sacred platform, I want to say with determination that we will carry forward the legacy of Gandhi-Nehru. Working in this direction, development of all types of infrastructure is our priority. Keeping in view the immense employment potential in agriculture and forest products in the state, a target has been set to set up 200 food parks, out of which land has been identified for the establishment of food parks in 67 development blocks.
The foundation stone of food parks in Sukma in Sukma district and Dhuragaon in Lohandiguda development block of Bastar district has also been done. A training and designing center related to textile industry has been established in Sukma itself. Work is in progress towards setting up a granite based industry in village Rajpenta of Konta tehsil. The process of setting up new industrial centers in 7 districts is in progress for establishment of micro and small scale industries. Maize Processing Unit has been set up at Kondagaon. At the same time, the process of setting up ethanol plant has been started in Bhoramdev Cooperative Sugar Factory, Kawardha. Online land allotment is being done to establish a new industrial area in Lakhanpuri district Kanker. We have amended the 'Chhattisgarh Industrial Planning Standing Order Rules 1963' in the much awaited reform in the direction of labor welfare, so that the retirement age of workers and employees working in various undertakings, factories, industries of the state increased from 58 years to 60 years. is.
To increase the production of industries of Chhattisgarh and the goods produced in the state get a big market in the state, we are developing our 'Chhattisgarh e Procurement System Portal' in place of JAM portal.
For establishing road connectivity in the inaccessible villages of the state, an action plan has been made to construct 100 bridges under the 'Jawahar Setu Yojana'. During the last 6 months 1547 km of roads, construction of 41 big bridges have been completed and work on 110 bridges is in progress. 261 km of roads have been built in the Naxalite affected zone. Many works are in the tender process to construct roads, bridges and culverts at a cost of billions of rupees.
I am happy to say that by accelerating the backward work of Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, our government has achieved a major achievement in the last 6 months and has topped the country in making it the base of rural infrastructure.
I believe that it is necessary to give roof to the houseless, so the implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is also our priority. The process of adding the names which were left in the permanent waiting list of this scheme should be completed correctly so that no eligible family is denied the benefit of this scheme.

Instead of making the cities a cement-concrete forest, we have started work towards building an environmentally sustainable residence where the quality of civic amenities is emphasized. 255 such markets will be developed in all urban bodies to survive the extinct cultural heritage 'Pauni-Pasari' market system. Gumashta license is exempted from renewal every year, due to which traders are relieved.
With the removal of the ban on the sale and purchase of land, about 60 thousand registries have been made and many families have returned their happiness. The dreams of many families have started coming true by reducing the collector guide line rate of land by 30 percent. The registry fee for houses and flats has been reduced from 4 percent to 2 percent. Simplification of mutation, diversion, stamping has been done. Single window system is being introduced for permissions of residential colony, township. With the recognition of lease transfer of landless families living in slums, regularization and landowning rights have been provided. 2 lakh 29 thousand rupees for the construction of 1 lakh 60 thousand families under 'peacock land-peacock house'. Arrangements have been made to transfer the amount to their bank accounts. Under the 'Mor Awas-Mor Chinhari' scheme, construction of multi-storeyed flats in the municipal areas has been expedited for the families affected by the pond crossing, drowning area and other schemes, due to which only Rs. 75 thousand will be given to the beneficiary. I will meet you at home 300 crores has been released to urban bodies for public utility development works.
Strengthening the campaign for quality drinking water supply, six new schemes have been launched in the last 6 months. 'Mini Mata Amrit Dhara Nal Yojana' for BPL families deprived of domestic drinking water connection, 'Rajiv Gandhi Sarvajal Yojana' for supply of 'packaged water' through filter plant, 'Mukhyamantri Mobile Plant Drinking Water Scheme' for disaster affected places, State 'Girudpuri Dham Group Drinking Water Scheme' for the great pilgrimage site Girudpuri, 'Supebeda Drinking Water Scheme', Chandkhuri (J) In the fortification of Dila), 'Chandkuri Group Water Supply Scheme' will definitely provide relief to millions of people.
I said that the misuse of the public's hard earned earnings and Chhattisgarh Mahtari's womb resources will not be tolerated at all. The money from DMF comes from the exploitation of our minerals. Ironically, for a long time, this money was being heavily misused in the luxury of a few powerful people. We pledged to release a new guide line, stopping this process, and I am glad that we have done it too. Now in place of District Collector in the Governing Council of 'DMF', the Minister in-charge, Chairman and MLAs will be members. This amount will be used for public utility works in education, health, training, employment, up gradation of life, nutrition, etc. in mining affected areas and social audit of the amount to be done.
Brothers and sisters, It is our heritage as well as future responsibility to ensure development plans to the last person of the last section of the society, empowering citizens, mutual trust, harmony, harmony and security. With the empowerment, modernization of police force, many new dimensions of welfare activities have been added.

'While we have alerted the authorities and employees to pay attention to their basic functions to make the administration sensitive to the public interest, we have ensured strict adherence to the' Public Service Guarantee Act 'to fix accountability. Today I announce the creation of a new district, meeting another much awaited demand. This district will be known as 'Gorella-Pandra-Marwahi'. In this way, Chhattisgarh will become a state of 28 districts. Apart from this, 25 new tehsils will also be built.
We decided that we will solve the Naxalite problem by talking to people of every section who have been watching for decades. We have started it in Bastar and we will continue this process. Our Triveni of 'faith, development and security' has curbed Naxalite activities.
We can reach our goals by honoring our traditions and expanding our culture. The energy that is communicated with euphoria in public life is an essential element of peace and development. For this, we have expanded the beginning by declaring 'Rajim Maghi Punni Mela' as a new public holiday. The new enthusiasm that has awakened in the state by the new public holiday of Hareli, Teja, Mata Karma Jayanti, World Tribal Day and Chhath Puja is unprecedented.
Incidentally, today there is also Raksha Bandhan, which our traditions have made more of a social unity than religious and a festival of brotherhood and protection. Along with this, the importance of 'Bhojali' has been added, which goes beyond the tradition of Scheduled Tribes and is accepted in all societies. I congratulate all the brothers and sisters of Raksha Bandhan and Bhojali festival and promise that our government will play the role of every sister's brother.
We do not approve of the scale of development as in the previous era, where per capita income is also shown to increase and poverty should also continue to increase. Our goal is to increase per capita income with standard of living and a decisive reduction in poverty rate. In this way, we will make the prosperity of the state a medium of prosperity for all.
I believe that with the new thinking and new works for the creation of 'Nava Chhattisgarh', you will all be feeling the importance of fulfilling the dreams of your forefathers and the formation of Chhattisgarh state. We all will fulfill the resolve of 'Garhbo Nava Chhattisgarh'.

Jai Hind-Jai Chhattisgarh
