Bhopal, Mar 1 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today assured that public grievances would be effectively redressed while ensuring speed development in every sector through accountable administration free from prejudice.
Expressing concern over Naxal activities in Sidhi district, he warned that strict action would be initiated and efforts made to discourage Naxalism through mass awareness, an official release said.
Replying to a debate on budgetary demands in the Assembly, the Chief Minister said attempts of appeasement and conversion would scarcely be tolerated.
