Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Governor Mangubhai Patel on Wednesday issued a clarion call for universal advancement along the path of duty in ‘Kartavya Kaal’ by toiling in the direction of creating a developed state for the purpose of attaining the objective of a developed nation.
Touching upon the state dispensation’s achievements – during the gubernatorial address marking the inaugural day of the Assembly’s Budget Session – he averred, “The consecration ceremony at Ayodhya’s Ram temple immersed the entire world in devotion. In that sequence, the Madhya Pradesh government committed itself to commencing work on the Ram Van Gaman Path in Chitrakoot and Orchha.

The resolve to establish the Veer Bharat Museum is in consonance with recognition vis-à-vis the lives and sacrifices of bravehearts, Patel underlined.

In the context of Indore’s Hukumchand Mill; as many as 4,800 labourers’ families were given Rs 224 cr due to them. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s guidance, the state dispensation will leave no stone unturned for the welfare of other mills’ workers,” he added.
