Bhopal, Feb 19 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is likely to make several key announcements at the Kisan Mahapanchayat getting underway tomorrow at the local Jamboori Maidan.
It is believed that farmers' power bills might be waived and interest rate on loans reduced. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Rajnath Singh will be among those present. Panchayats for dalits, tribals, sportspersons, teachers and women were organised earlier at the chief minister's residence.
The predecessor Congress regime announced waiver of peasants' power bills but did not provide any funds as compensation to the Madhya Pradesh State Electricity Board (MPSEB). After the BJP came to power, Rs 1,783 crore were provided to the MPSEB.
