BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh has set a new record in the urban Swachh Survekshan Awards, led by Indore, and now it is setting a new benchmark in rural cleanliness.The city of Bhopal has ranked first in the Cleanliness Survey-Rural in the west zone for 2022, while Indore has ranked third, and the state has set the bar.It was a moment of great joy and pride for Madhya Pradesh, according to Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.Madhya Pradesh has been named the highest state in the west zone in 2022 by the Swachh Survekshan Gramin.

In the west zone, Madhya Pradesh was joined by Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Rajasthan.Avinash Lavania, a Bhopal collector, thanked residents of the area, particularly those in rural areas, for their efforts, and said their hygiene habits earned Bhopal first place in the poll.It was the result of a whole team's hard work, Lavania told Lavania.Through various approaches, we attempted to involve people in rural areas in the cleanliness movement.

Vikas Mishra, the former CEO of Bhopal district panchayat, said the region was on the forefront of a campaign to raise concerns of cleanliness.They are the ones who changed their behavior patterns and reacted to our initiatives.We wanted to prevent villages from returning to their old status.On the awareness campaign, he said, The best thing we did was to involve women in the cleanliness campaign.

Interested tea-stall owners and barbers were involved in the campaign so that the message is delivered quickly to people and they become involved.Cleanliness competitions were held.Panchayat workers were hired, and those who excelled were given incentives and rewards.Political staff from all sides were also involved in the campaign.

The senior Congress representative said that if Congress returns to power in next year's assembly elections, the old pension plan for state government workers will be retained.Nath said that after 12 months, the Congress party government in Madhya Pradesh would be formed and that the old pension scheme for government employees will be revived.In 2004, the Atal Behari Vajpayee NDA government introduced the new National Pension Scheme.However, opposition parties in the region are now promising to return to the old pension scheme, which they claim has better future returns for employees.

In Punjab, chief minister Bhagwant Mann is considering reverting to the old pension scheme.Now a year before the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, state Congress president Kamal Nath has recommended that the government pay 100% of the employee's original pension fund, which gave 50% of the employee's last salary.Nath said that India's culture is meant to unite and connect people.We link hearts, marriages, cultures, and individuals.

According to Nath, Babasaheb Ambedkar gave us the best Constitution of the world, and the same Constitution framed by Babasaheb is also being attacked.During its 18-year tenure, the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government put Madhya Pradesh at number one in bribery, number one in rape, and number one in unemployment, according to the senior Congress leader.The BJP handed over the state to us when we came to power, Kamal Nath argued.Was I guilty of any offense if I waived the loans of 27 lakh farmers?

If I started cow-shelters, what offence did I commit?Nath said that if the time of the Lok Sabha elections code of conduct were removed, his government would only have 11 months to rest.Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the chief minister of India, knows the art of making false announcements.I do not make announcements, but Kamal Nath says I am announcing that the old pension scheme for government workers will be reinstated as soon as the Congress government is formed in Madhya Pradesh.
