New Delhi [India]: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan met Prime Minister Narendra Modi here today and invited him to the concluding ceremony of Ekatm Yatra.

The Ekatm Yatra has been launched by the Madhya Pradesh government to collect metal pieces in order to install a 108-feet tall statue of Adi Shankaracharya at Omkareshwar in Khandwa.

The yatra, which was flagged off by Chouhan on Tuesday, will conclude at Omkareshwar on January 22.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister also discussed the Bhavantar Bhugtan Yojana being run for the welfare of farmers.

“Bhavantar yojana is for the farmers’ welfare so that they can sell at minimum support price. I also discussed this yojana with Prime Minister Modi,” Chouhan said.

He further said that the Madhya Pradesh government is also working hard on solar energy. (ANI)
