The CM said that a cabinet sub committee headed by Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand is currently visiting various districts to check the recommendations by S S Bloeria and Ganai commissions to set up the units.

Claiming that Congress was trying to weaken NC in Vijaypur, he said the people had given a fitting reply with their presence at the rally.

“Everybody is eyeing Vijaypur. The day he (Surjeet Singh Slathia) won the elections, he has been a target of political parties. (They think) Salathia should be dislodged because he has developed close rapport with the people. But your presence in larger number here is a befitting reply to all who are trying to weaken Slathia,” he said.
