Pranav Adani, while speaking at the inaugural session of the Regional Industry Conclave in Ujjain said that the Adani group intends to double its investments in the state.

He further said that a significant portion of this increased investment, totaling Rs 5,000 crore, will be allocated towards the construction of the Mahakal Expressway.

“I am delighted to announce that not only will the Adani Group continue investing in these diverse sectors but we will also more than double our investment in Madhya Pradesh, and contribute in our own humble way to the state’s all-round development. Our faith in your visionary leadership will see us investing close to Rs 75,000 crore in Madhya Pradesh. Of this, Rs 5,000 crore will be utilized to build the Mahakaal Expressway from this great city Ujjain, to Bhopal, through Indore,” he said.

Pranav Adani further lauded the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that the PM is working hard to take this nation to the pinnacle of glory.

“Madhya Pradesh is the heart of the country, and I have no hesitation in saying that the future belongs to Madhya Pradesh. Our successful Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, is working hard to take this nation to the pinnacle of glory. It is clearly visible that under the leadership of Dr. Mohan Yadav, Madhya Pradesh will play a significant role in fulfilling this commitment.”

He also said that the group will also invest another Rs 5,000 crore to set up a 4-million-tons-per-annum clinker unit in Chorgadi and two cement grinding units, in Dewas and Bhopal, with a combined capacity of 8-million-tons-per-annum.

“In the natural resources sector, we will invest over Rs 4,000 crore – and another Rs 600 crore to expand our presence in food processing, logistics and agri-logistics, and defence manufacturing,” he added.

Pranav Adani further said that the investment by the Adani Group in fuel distribution, which includes CGD, LNG, EV and BIO, will exceed Rs 2,100 crore, the bulk of which will be used to strengthen our city gas distribution network in 5 geographical areas: Bhind, Burhanpur, Anuppur, Tikamgarh and Alirajpur.

Adding further, he said that the Adani Group’s biggest investment will be in enhancing the state’s access to plentiful, reliable and affordable power. We will invest close to Rs 30,000 crore to ramp up the power generation capacity, at its Mahan Energen plant in Singrauli, from its current 1,200 megawatts to a massive 4,400 megawatts.

“We will also invest close to Rs 28,000 crore to set up 3410 MW capacity Pumped Storage Projects,” he added.

Pranav further claimed that the investment of nearly Rs 75,000 crore will generate over 15,000 direct and indirect employment opportunities in a wide variety of industrial sectors across Madhya Pradesh.

“Currently, our presence in Madhya Pradesh spans a wide range of sectors – from roads, cement and natural resources to thermal power, renewable energy and power transmission. Our cumulative investment in the state amounts to almost Rs 18,000 crore – and we have created almost 11,000 employment opportunities across the state,” he added.

The two-day Investor Summit, named the Regional Industry Conclave, kicked off today in the city of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh.

This initiative spans across 20 districts of the state, including Bhopal, Ujjain, and Indore. 56 projects are expected to attract investments exceeding Rs 74,000 crore, creating employment opportunities for over 17,000 individuals.

At present, investment proposals totaling Rs 74,711 crore have been agreed upon by 35 companies participating in the Industry Conclave. This figure is expected to rise further during the conclave. Over 800 investors are slated to attend the event, with 30 foreign delegates also joining. Rather than solely targeting major industrialists for MOU signings, the government is emphasising the actualization of as many projects as possible. Accordingly, priority is being given to companies and individual investors prepared to invest immediately. (ANI)

MP: Cong Supporters Booked For Creating Ruckus At Mahakal Temple During Jitu Patwari’s Visit

A group of unidentified supporters of Congress have been booked for allegedly creating a ruckus at Mahakaleshwar temple in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain during the visit of the newly appointed state chief of the party, Jitu Patwari, police said on Wednesday.

According to officials, a case under sections 294, 323, 506, and 34 of the IPC, and also under relevant sections of the MP Shri Mahakaleshwar Mandir Adhiniyam, 1982, has been registered against them at Mahakal Police station.

Notably, Patwari visited Mahakal temple on Tuesday afternoon along with party workers and supporters to offer prayers. During his visit, a group of party supporters argued with employees of the temple management committee, they said.

The unidentified party supporters allegedly tried to enter the temple from ‘Nagada Dwar’ and manhandled duty staff deployed there. They also abused and threatened the staff with dire consequences, as per the FIR.

Ujjain Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Jayant Singh Rathore said, “Congress President Jitu Patwari visited the Mahakal temple on Tuesday to offer prayers here and he was accompanied by his party’s supporters.”

He said that while entering the temple, some of the party supporters misbehaved with the security staff of the temple management committee and also used abusive language.

“After that, on the complaint of the temple management committee, a case has been registered against unknown persons (Congress supporters), and further investigation into the matter is underway,” the ASP added. (ANI)

Madhya Pradesh congress

Cong Accuses BJP Of Removing Nehru’s Pic From MP Assembly

The political temperature in Madhya Pradesh has shot up after the Congress accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of removing former Prime Minister late Jawaharlal Nehru’s picture from the state assembly.

Former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh’s son and Congress leader Jaivardhan Singh said that the BJP or whosoever removed the photo was wrong and he would discuss it with Protem speaker Gopal Bhargava.

“It is regrettable to remove Jawaharlal Nehru’s photo from the House. Two countries got independence together, India and Pakistan. Everyone knows what the condition of Pakistan is. The foundation of Indian democracy is strong because of Jawaharlal Nehru. BJP or whoever has removed Nehru’s photo is wrong. I will discuss it with the Protem Speaker,” Jaivardhan Singh said.

Notably, a picture of Bhimrao Ambedkar has been installed in place of Jawaharlal Nehru’s picture in the house.

Leader of opposition, Umang Singhar said that they (BJP) would remove Bhimrao Ambedkar’s photo from the house and replace it with Nathuram Godse’s photo in coming days.

“It is not important about removing Nehru’s photo. What is important is that their (BJP) effort is to eliminate his (Nehru) thoughts. Ahead they (BJP) will replace Ambedkar’s photo and with Godse’s photo,” Singhar said.

Meanwhile, reacting to the Congress’ claim, Protem Speaker Gopal Bhargava said that all this happened during the last tenure and he had not given any instruction into the matter.

“All this happened during the last tenure. I have not given any instructions in this manner. Nehru and Ambedkar are supreme leaders, there is equal respect for all. There is a special committee regarding this in the secretariat of the Assembly, the issue will be sent to it and then will act whatever decision is taken,” Bhargava said.

Besides, Deputy CM Rajendra Shukla also reacted to the issue saying the secretariat would decide to place Nehru’s photo at an appropriate place.

“Putting up Ambedkar’s photo should be welcomed. Congress should not talk like this about it. Photo of Bhimrao Ambedkar, the creator of the Constitution, should be mandatory in the Assembly. The secretariat will decide to place Nehru’s photo at an appropriate place,” Shukla added.

Another Congress MLA Rajendra Bharti said both Nehru and Ambedkar were supreme leaders, their photos should have been displayed in the assembly. It was wrong to remove Nehru’s photo from the house.

“The way the Bharatiya Janata Party is thinking now, it seems that they (BJP) will remove the photos of both the great men and replace them with Godse’s photo in the future,” Bharti said.

Meanwhile, Bharatiya Adivasi Party MLA Kamleshwar Dodiyar said that both were supreme leaders, their photos should have been there.

“If Nehru’s photo has been removed then I will talk to the Speaker. Removing the photo is wrong, I will definitely raise any wrong issue in the House,” he added. (ANI)

Modi Flags Off Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra In 5 States

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday flagged off the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram, the five states where assembly elections were held recently.

The yatra started in other states earlier, and its launch in the five states were delayed due to the model code of conduct in place due to the elections.

After flagging off the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra in the 5 states, PM Modi said, “For the resolution of developed India, our cities have a huge role. For a long time after independence, development was limited to a few big cities. But today, we are focusing on the development of Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.”

“Under the Amirt Mission or SMART City Mission, basic facilities are being improved in the small cities. We are trying to ensure that facilities like water supply, drainage, sewage systems, traffic systems, CCTV networks, etc. are upgraded constantly,” he said.

“Cleanliness, public toilets, and LED street lights are also being worked upon for the first time on this level. This has a direct impact on ease of living and ease of doing business,” added the PM.

Talking about the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra further, the Prime Minister said, “With the vision of a developed India, Modi’s guaranteed vehicle is reaching every corner of the country. It’s been a month since we started this journey. In just one month, this journey has reached thousands of villages as well as 1,500 cities.”

The yatra has been flagged off in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram, also beginning today. The launch of VBSY got delayed due to the model code of conduct in place due to the elections.

“I request every state government to expand the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra rapidly in their respective states. Even though Modi has flagged off the yatra, the truth is that the countrymen have taken command of that journey all by themselves,” said the PM.

Earlier, during the virtual interaction with the beneficiaries of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, Union Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said, “It was PM Modi’s concern that no one should be left behind. Many people do ‘yatra’. Some for physical benefits and some for personal gains, but this ‘yatra’ is such that it is for the benefit of the 140 crore people of the country.”

Interacting with the beneficiaries of the ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’, PM Modi inquired about their experiences, discussed what schemes benefitted them and also asked if they faced any hurdles while receiving the benefits of the central government’s schemes.

The Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra was launched by the Prime Minister on November 15 in Khunti, Jharkhand.

As a part of on-the-spot services under the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, health camps are being organised at the places of the halt of the IEC Van in the Gram Panchayats.

The Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra is a nationwide initiative to inform and empower citizens about government schemes.

It is being undertaken across the country to attain the saturation of flagship schemes of the government by ensuring that the benefits of these schemes reach all targeted beneficiaries in a time-bound manner.

As of November 26, 5,470 Health camps have been conducted in 995 Gram Panchayats, reporting a total footfall of more than 7,82,000 people, according to a government release. (ANI)

BJP To Declare CM Faces For Three States In Two Days: Murlidhar Rao

Madhya Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in charge, Murlidhar Rao on Friday claimed that the Chief Ministers for the three states- Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh would be revealed within the next two days.

Rao said, “The central observers have been appointed for the three states by the party. They will visit the respective states and the party will declare its Chief Minister faces for those three states within two days”.

Amid suspense over the Chief Minister’s post, Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday announced its Central observers in their recently won states–Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

“The Parliamentary Board of the Bharatiya Janata Party has approved Central observers of the party in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh,” a release from the party said.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Rajya Sabha MP Suresh Pandey and Vinod Tavde, National Secretary General have been appointed as observers in Rajasthan.

In Madhya Pradesh, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar, K Laxman, National President, OBC Morcha and Aasha Lakda, National Secretary have been given the responsibility.

Union Tribal Minister, Arjun Munda, Union Minister Sarbanana Sonowal and BJP leader Dushyant Kumar Gautam have been appointed as observers in Chhattisgarh.

Once the observers head to the states they are expected to meet the newly elected MLAs in the assembly before announcing the decision on who will become the next Chief Minister in the state.

The BJP, which had been battling close to 20 years of incumbency in Madhya Pradesh, won a resounding mandate bagging 163 seats while the Congress finished a distant second at 66 seats.

In Rajasthan, the vote count painted a starkly different picture to what some of the pollsters had predicted, as the BJP won 115 seats, emerging as the party crossing the halfway mark, and the Congress got 69 seats. Of the 90 assembly constituencies in Chhattisgarh, the BJP bagged 54 while the Congress won 35.

Meanwhile, the opposition MPs have been questioning the BJP over the delay in declaring the CM faces.

Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Thursday said that BJP is playing musical chairs right now with only two people Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah taking the call.

Priyanka Chaturvedi called the delay in naming Chief Ministers ‘Unfortunate’.

“Because they (BJP) are busy in musical chairs. They have the majority, and people have expressed their trust in him. Elected MLAs have to make a decision that who will be the leader. But that process has been done away in the BJP. Only two people make decisions on the CM – PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Results were out on December 3 and today is 7th December,” Priyanka Chaturvedi told ANI. (ANI)

Gaumutra States

BJP Only Wins Elections In ‘Gaumutra States’: DMK MP Senthilkumar

Taking a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party after its resounding victories in the Assembly polls in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh, DMK MP DNV Senthilkumar on Tuesday said that people in the country should realise that BJP can only register wins in the Hindi heartland states and referred to them as ‘Gomutra states’.

The Lok Sabha was debating on the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023 and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2023.

Speaking at the debate, Lok Sabha MP DNV Senthilkumar said, “Union Territories always look toward becoming States. But this is the first case where a state has become a Union Territory. BJP has just won many of the state elections. When they are not able to win a state they make it a Union Territory where they can have control over the governor and can run governance through them. If they were confident of a win there they would have not made it.”

“So people of this country should think that the power of the BJP is winning elections mainly in the heartland states of Hindi and what we generally call as the ‘Gomutra states’,” he added.

He further said that the BJP has no chance of winning elections in the Southern part of India.

“You (BJP) cannot come to South India. See all the results that happened in Kerala, Tamil Nadu Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, we are very strong there,” he said.

Reacting to the remarks made by DMK MP, Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai said that the level of discourse of the ruling party in Tamil Nadu has touched the floor.

“Chennai is sinking due to the misgovernance of DMK and so is their level of discourse on the floor of the Parliament. After calling our North Indian friends Pani Puri sellers, toilet constructors, etc., I.N.D.I. Alliance DMK MP, makes Gaumutra Jibes,” K Annamalai posted on X.

Condemning the remarks made by Senthilkumar, Annamalai further said, “He has possibly forgotten that the NDA Alliance is in power in Puducherry and was in power in Karnataka until recently. The arrogance of DMK will be the prime reason for their downfall!”

Buoyed by his party’s recent wins in the state assembly elections in the Hindi heartland states, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a swipe at the opposition asking them to be at peace with their “arrogance, lies, pessimism and ignorance” while asking people to be aware of their “divisive agenda”.

“May they be happy with their arrogance, lies, pessimism and ignorance. But.. Beware of their divisive agenda. An old habit of 70 years can’t go away so easily,” Modi said in a post on ‘X’ on Tuesday while commenting on a video snippet from a television news analysis.

The Prime Minister also snapped at the opposition saying that they need to be prepared for several such “meltdowns” in the future as well.” Also, such is the wisdom of the people that they have to be prepared for many more meltdowns ahead,” he said.

Union Minister of State (MoS) for Education Annapurna Devi said that the remarks made by DMK reflect his shallow mindset.

“The people of the state have voted for BJP and they have trust in PM Modi. The people who give such statements have a shallow mindset and are jealous of PM Modi’s popularity across the world,” she said.

The election results in the four states led to the Congress losing its governments in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh to the BJP and also failed to dislodge the BJP government from Madhya Pradesh. However, it was able to register victory in Telangana. (ANI)

BJP Election Commission

BJP Poised To Sweep MP, Majority In Rajasthan, C’garh; Cong Ahead In Telangana

The BJP is poised for a dominant performance in the Hindi heartland states and is slated for a two-thirds majority in Madhya Pradesh and is heading towards comfortable victories in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, according to the latest trends from Election Commission.

The counting of votes in the four states, which went to the polls last month, started at 8 am on Sunday.

The Congress is poised to win Telangana for the first time in a shock for the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi which was in power in India’s youngest state for the past 10 years.

The BJP is leading on 163 of 230 seats in Madhya Pradesh, 53 of 90 seats in Chhattisgarh and 114 of 199 seats in Rajasthan.

Congress, which was seen to have an edge in Chhattisgarh, is leading on 36 seats in the state. In Madhya Pradesh, it is leading on 65 seats and in Rajasthan on 70 seats.

Rajasthan seems to have followed the over three-decade old trend of rotating governments and the Congress government led by Ashok Gehlot appears to be on its way out.

BJP is on its way to creating a record in Madhya Pradesh and its expected coming to power again after having ruled the state for 18 of the past 20 years is an apparent indication of the party’s organizational hold in the state as well as popularity of its schemes and leadership.

BJP has bounced back strongly in Chhattisgarh where the ruling Congress was supposed to have done well. A strong, sustained and aggressive campaign and its matching Congress in poll promises seem to worked for the BJP.

In Telangana, Congress gained from the anti-incumbency against the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi with its leader A Revanth Reddy seen to be a fierce critic of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. Victory in Karnataka in assembly polls earlier this year enthused Congress workers in Telangana and the party ran a strong campaign bolstered by its leaders from different parts of the country.

As per the latest trends from the Election Commission, Congress is leading in 63 of 119 assembly seats, BRS on 41, BJP on nine, AIMIM on 4 and CPI on one.

The BJP has improved its vote share in the southern state and is poised to improve its tally as well.

While the Congress will be happy over its expected victory in Telangana, the loss in Hindi heartland states is a cause of worry for the party months before the Lok Sabha polls. Of the large swathe of the Hindi heartland, Congress is in power only in Himachal Pradesh and is part of the government in Bihar.

Counting in Mizoram, which went to the polls last month, will take place on Monday. (ANI)
