The 7th edition of ‘Invest Madhya Pradesh’ brought together stakeholders from India and abroad to discuss investment opportunities.
Chouhan said that there is no shortage of land, electricity and water in the state. “We have enough land for industries. Businesses can mark a location on the map, and we’ll allocate land within 24 hours… We built dams to capture water power. Even the Delhi Metro runs on electricity generated from the Rewa Solar Power Plant.
In Madhya Pradesh only one of the two can remain dacoit or Shivraj
“MP is a peaceful land. When we formed the government, we had made it clear that only dacoits or Shivraj Singh would be allowed to stay here. Claiming that the period of terror in the ravines of Chambal is over, the Chief Minister said dacoits were wiped out within a year of formation of the government.
Chouhan said, “The state government is committed to the progress of the state and is always ready to extend all possible support to industrialists and investors.”
“A prosperous, proud, powerful and self-reliant India is being built under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. We are making self-reliant Madhya Pradesh for self-reliant India.
