BHOPAL: As many as 10,918 poor families were allotted plots of land worth a total of Rs 129.37 crore in Madhya Pradesh‘s Tikamgarh district on Wednesday. It was a “social revolution,” Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on the occasion.

The BJP leader, whose government would be facing Assembly elections in a year’s time, had announced the ‘Mukhyamantri Bhu Adhikar Yojna‘ or the scheme for distribution of residential plots free of cost a day earlier.

His government will ensure that no person lives in a ‘kaccha’ (temporary) house in the state and provide residential plots to all eligible persons, Chouhan said on Wednesday.

The scheme would be implemented in other parts of the state too.

The beneficiaries can construct their own houses under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY) and Mukhyamantri Jan Awas Yojna, the CM said.

“Now nobody will evict them from their plots,” he added.

At the function, Chouhan handed over land lease papers to Bhagwan Das, Bhajan Lal, Balchandra, Jasrath, Teejabai, Devendra, Rajkumar, Jagdish, Rakesh, Ram Prasad, Babloo and Rajan, among others, an official release said.

The chief minister also laid foundation stones of various development works worth Rs 255 crore on the occasion.

He conceived the land distribution scheme on September 14, 2021, when he was visiting Mohangarh in Tikamgarh district, he said.

Some residents of Hatheri village, including “Akhilesh, Kallan and Sonu,” told him that they did not have houses of their own, Chouhan recalled.

“That day I decided to provide for permanent houses for the people who do not have their own house and vowed to provide a plot of land to every such person,” he said.

Medical Education Minister Vishvas Sarang and local MLAs among others were present on the occasion.
