He further informed that this government has also ensured that vaccination would get priority and from the rank of 27 in the country, the state is today ranks 2nd when it comes to Vaccination.

Speaking on E- Governance, he said, “After competing with countries like China, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, we were able to come out as one of the best projects for E-Governance in the entire globe which was recognized by the United Nations”.

Speaking on the Sonapur- Borghat road, which is one of the most important connectivity for the people of the area, the Chief Minister said the Government has sanctioned over Rs. 120 Crores for the construction of the 29.5 kilometers, and the foundation stone has also been laid. “As a Government, our commitment is to ensure every nook and corner of our state moves forward together, we will work so that no areas are left behind and we will work together for a purpose to take our state forward,” he stressed.
