INDORE: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh today termed as "unfortunate" the alleged anti-India slogans raised in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and sought stringent action against those who committed the act.

"It is unfortunate that in order to glorify the terrorists, slogans were raised on JNU campus in their support some days ago. Breeding of anti-India thoughts in this university is not right," Singh told reporters on sidelines of a function here.

"Severe action should be taken against the elements that are talking about dividing the nation on JNU campus," he added.

Replying to a query, he expressed hope that Raipur and other cities in Chhattisgarh would figure in Centre's next list of Smart City project.

Singh said that municipal corporations are transforming the major cities in Chhattisgarh on the lines of the Smart Cities project.

Earlier, speaking at a programme on 'small states' organised by Indore Press Club, he said that Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh in 2000 in the midst of several challenges. "But both the states have been benefited by the move as they are marching ahead and are on the development path," he said.

He claimed that the Naxalism was on a decline in Chhattisgarh as people of the state have deep faith in democracy.

"Notwithstanding the life threats issued by Naxals to boycott elections, 70 per cent electorate exercised their franchise during the Lok Sabha and Assembly election in Chhattisgarh's Bastar region," he said.
