Zee Madhya Pradesh Chhattisgarh (Zee MPCG) highlighted the initiatives taken by the Chhattisgarh government by hosting the 'Emerging Bastar' conclave.
Organised in collaboration with the Government of Chhattisgarh, Zee MPCG’s exclusive 'Emerging Bastar' program was an eye-opener to the larger audience for understanding the latest developments in the district and the importance of preserving the rich art, culture and music of the tribal community.
Bhupesh Baghel, Chief Minister, Chhattisgarh, appreciated the Zee MPCG for the exclusive screening of the 'Emerging Bastar' program and stated, “Bastar was under the influence of Naxal activities, people were in panic. We won the trust of the people of Bastar by working for the development of Bastar and providing assured security to the people.” Baghel also further emphasised on how the culture of Bastar is the identity of this place. To save this culture, the government is also looking into the Devguri construction, Ghotul construction, implementation of Adivasi Parab Samman Nidhi Yojana, Chhattisgarhi Parv Samman Nidhi Yojana etc.
Zee MPCG’s 'Emerging Bastar' also witnessed the participation of dignitaries like Deepak Baij- Member Of Parliament (Loksabha)-Bastar, Chandan Kashyap – MLA, Narayanpur, Shishupala Soori – MLA, Kanker, Vikram Mandavi- MLA, Bijapur, Divyang Patel - SP, Kanker, Ajit Basant- Collector, Narayanpur, Gaurav Rai - SP, Dantewada.
Key speakers engaged in panel discussions on topics like ‘How the benefits of government schemes are reaching the people’, ‘Has the demand of the people of Jagdalpur been fulfilled?’ and several other elements necessary for ‘Inclusive Development’.
Mohit Sinha, Editor of Zee MPCG, said, “We take pride in highlighting the initiatives taken by the Government of Chhattisgarh towards the culturally rich and resource-abundant district of Bastar. Improvisation in road connectivity and provision of modern facilities in the tribal land makes Bastar an aspirational tourist hotspot. Public platforms like Emerging Bastar are a step forward towards educating the larger audience on the govt. initiatives being undertaken for the welfare of the people and present the way forward”
Abhay Ojha, CEO, Zee Media Corporation, added, “Through Emerging Bastar, Zee Media believes in providing an open-ended discussion platform where not only experts, and policymakers but also citizens can understand the collaborative development in the unnoticed interiors of India. It also assures an increased awareness of the initiatives taken up for the larger good of society.”
