Government should not run from Bhopal but from Chaupal
Regarding the PESA Act, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that we have to create a new history. For the first time a serious effort has been made to give the rights of water, forest and land to the tribal class. Now the government should not run from Bhopal but from Chaupal, for this work should be done from the point of view of decentralization. He said that necessary publicity should also be done about PESA rules through street plays, wall writing and other mediums.
