President Ram Nath Kovind lauds progress made by Chhattisgarh

RAIPUR: President Ramnath Kovind on Sunday lauded the progress achieved by Chhattisgarh during a short span since it was carved out of Madhya Pradesh as an independent state 17 years ago.
Stating that the state could become a model for other states, he said, “Chhattisgarh is bestowed with vast natural resources such as forests, rivers and minerals. But, the state’s real asset is its honest and simple people.” He was addressing the valedictory function of the state’s 18th foundation day celebrations held at Naya Raipur—the new state capital.
Greeting the people in state’s local Chhattisgarhi dialect, the President said the state has taken up many development and welfare initiatives. The new state capital Naya Raipur is developing as world’s first modern and eco-friendly city with modern architecture and unique town planning. Lauding state’s development model, the President pointed out that Chhattisgarh is the first state to introduce and implement the food security Act and to provide highly subsidised ration to more than 60 lakh families.
