Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that Patrakar Bhawan will be built in Malviya Nagar, Bhopal. Will give it a new look. It will be equipped with modern facilities. The Chief Minister made several announcements in the press conference held on Thursday at CM House.
He said that this time the insurance company has increased the premium amount by 27%. Paying the increased premium amount will create difficulty for many journalists, so we have decided that the premium amount will be taken as last year. The state government will bear the increased burden. The last date to apply for insurance is being extended from September 16 to September 25.
The Chief Minister claimed, ‘We are going to remain even after this election, but I will complete all these things already. Later also we will do the work of taking it forward.
State Media Center will be the new Patrakar Bhavan
CM said, ‘Patrakar Bhavan was demolished in Malviya Nagar. The land is lying the same. A resolution has come to my mind to give a new look to this building. This building will take the form of State Media Centre. There will be modern facilities for press conferences and other activities. Will make arrangements for library, canteen and whatever else may be needed.
CM also made these announcements
Will find a way to create colonies of journalists in the districts also
Recently we built two journalist colonies in Bhopal. Land allotted. When journalists meet in the district and other places also, they demand a colony. Some difficulties have come in between due to the decision of the Supreme Court, but we will find a way out and make arrangements to give land to the journalists where our society is located. We will find whatever legal option is available.
