The Chief Minister said that some years ago, Madhya Pradesh was called a "Bimaru Rajya" (Sick state). Now, the growth rate of the state has risen to ten percent against the target of seven per cent in the ongoing XI Five Year Plan. It will be increased to 12 per cent in the next Plan. Contribution of officers and employees is also vital in the state's development. They can ensure state's progress by working with dedication, honesty and credibility.

Mr. Chouhan said that officers and employees are the heart of body of administration. Blood circulates properly in the body when the heart beats properly. He said that the purpose of Beti Bachao Abhiyan is to enhance women's dignity. This campaign is gaining momentum with people's cooperation.

He reiterated the resolve to root out corruption. He said that zero tolerance policy should be adopted against corruption. He appealed that everyone should put in his best efforts for Madhya Pradesh's development. He said that in his capacity as Chief Minister, he promises to work 18 hours daily.
