Will make M.P. cities better than those in U.S.: Chouhan

Drawing a parallel between the U.S. and Madhya Pradesh once again, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that his government would make cities in the State better than those in the U.S.

Addressing a function in Sagar on Saturday, the Chief Minister also said that cities in the central State would emerge as the ‘cleanest, prettiest and developed cities,’ in the country in the next five years.

Madhya Pradesh is going to polls later this year.

“We are going to make Madhya Pradesh cities better than the U.S. Our government has been continuously trying to make the cities modern and we will continue to do so,” Mr. Chouhan said while inaugurating urban development projects worth more than Rs. 14,000 crore.

To be cleanest

He said: “Cities in Madhya Pradesh would become the cleanest, prettiest and developed in the country in the next five years”.

This is not the first time that Mr. Chouhan had compared the infrastructure in Madhya Pradesh with that in the U.S.

Addressing a business round-table organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the U.S.-India Strategic Partnership Forum in Washington on October 24 last year, Mr. Chouhan had said that condition of roads in Madhya Pradesh was better than those in the U.S.

“When I got down at the Washington airport and travelled on the road, I felt the roads in Madhya Pradesh are better than in United States….I am saying this not just for the sake of saying,” Mr. Chouhan had said.

Subsequently, Mr. Chouhan had cited a report to claim that 92% of the roads in Washington are in “poor” shape.
