According to Bhupesh Baghel, there is a challenge in selecting recipients for various initiatives because no census was conducted after 2011. According to a press statement from the Chhattisgarh government, Mr. Baghel stated during the discussion that there was an issue with choosing recipients for various initiatives because no census was conducted after 2011. Bhupesh Baghel, the chief minister of Chhattisgarh, met with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Friday. Chief Minister Baghel and the Prime Minister spoke about a variety of topics at the meeting, including the conduct of an early census, GST obligations, and coal royalties.
Bhupesh Baghel stated in his remarks to the media that he has requested the Prime Minister to complete the census as quickly as possible. As a result of the census not being available after 2011, according to Baghel, it is difficult to choose the appropriate beneficiary. “Those who should get the benefits are being deprived of the benefits,” he stated.
Chhattisgarh, according to CM Baghel, has been experiencing a deficit in commercial tax collection. GST obligations totaling Rs 1,375 crore have been unpaid to the central government since June 2022. Bhupesh Baghel added that he also asked the coal blocks for the Rs 4,170 crore in royalties that were owed. According to the Chief Minister, he has asked the Prime Minister for support in order to launch the light metro service from Nava Raipur to Durg.
He said that the fourth meeting of the G20’s Standing Financial Working Group will take place in Chhattisgarh in September. “A discussion was held with the Prime Minister regarding its preparation,” he mentioned. Bhupesh Baghel claimed to have given the Prime Minister his word that the G20’s visitors would be treated to first-rate accommodations.
