Bhopal, Jan 12: After putting the party and government on election mode ahead of year-end Assembly election, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has told the bureacucracy to understand the pains and sufferings of weaker sections and adopt a sensitive approach to solve their problems.
Addressing the District Collectors and Superintendents of Police of all districts through video conferencing from here yesterday, Mr Chouhan said ''common man should not be compelled to wander even for small problems''.
