He claimed that both Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have raced way ahead of those states which were geographically restructured as two separate states a decade ago.
Despite global recession, both the states maintained excellent growth rate of late. Singh claimed that he carries a long standing association with the Madhya Pradesh and Indore. Every time I start new political inning in Chhattisgarh, I seek blessings from Mahakal in Ujjain.
He is scheduled to seek offers prayers at Ujjain on Monday. On Naxalite menace back home, Singh claimed that thousands of youths have been recruited in CG police and they have been armed with latest weapons.
He, however, called for Integrated Action against naxals from all the states affected by this threat.

The states have limited resources and the CM is expected to act like a CEO for ensuring that additional funds are generated by optimum utilization of resources.
