Delivering his customary address on the second day of the 14th Assembly session, Madhya Pradesh Governor Ram Naresh Yadav on thursday said the state government would adopt a zero tolerance policy towards corruption and focus on the development of the state.

“The government will adopt a zero tolerance policy towards corruption and strive for good governance.

“The government took four major decisions on the very first day of the government’s formation - providing rice and wheat at `1 per kg to poor families, launching the Mukhyamantri Khet Sadak Yojna and constituting the Madhyam Varg Ayog and the Vyapar Samvardhan Mandal.

“This shows the intention of the government,”  Yadav said.

“The government has made its intention clear that it wants to tackle corruption by promulgating the Special Courts Act and the Public Service Guarantee Act. The ambit of Public Service Guarantee Act would be enhanced from 101 services to 122 services,” he added.

In his 42-page address, the Governor spoke on the steps for the development of the state within a timeframe.  “The government has created a ‘vision document’ to carry out development and fixed a timeframe for its implementation. My government has arranged a system for internal vigilance within departments to check corruption,” he said.

Highlighting the employment generation initiative being taken by the state, Yadav said that a target to provide jobs to more than 5 lakh youth of the state has been set.
