Tikamgarh, MP, Nov 5 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said the government would not allow migration of villagers to happen due to drought or absence of employment opportunities.
Mr Chouhan, while addressing a 'Jan Darshan' programme at Budhera and Laron, said the government would make arrangements for employment in villages itself.
He said absence of rains in Tikarmgarh since the past four years and mere nine inch rainfall this year had made the situation worse forcing villagers to move out in search of employment. He announced six tahsils in the district as drought-affected.
Mr Chouhan also made announcements for deferring collection of rent and interest from farmers, providing Rs two crore for fodder and sending a special team for resolving drinking water crisis.
Later, BJP leaders informed Mr Chouhan that administrative officials were neglecting party workers. The Chief Minister assured that he would look into the complaints.
