    “The scheme was a promise at the central level. Congress could not win the elections.

We will wait and see if other Congress governments introduce, then we could consider it in future,” Baghel said.

    Chhattisgarh government is on collision course with BJP government at the Centre over procurement of paddy after a bumper crop in the state.

    The National Commission for Scheduled Tribe had earlier directed the Naxal-affected states to submit their reports on displaced tribals. However, the states failed to meet the deadline of submission which could otherwise trace the rehabilitation of about 5,000 tribal families.

    Chhattisgarh government has offered the Centre a solution to the problem of stubble burning in fields—set up ethanol or biofuel units using paddy husk and rice straw. On its part, the Chhattisgarh govt has decided to set up at least 6 biofuel plants to produce ethanol in the state. It will be the first state in India to use rice and paddy husk to produce the biofuel.

    The state government has hoped to generate more employment for the youth, who usually move out to Gujarat and Maharashtra as agricultural labourers or brick kiln workers.

    The charitable trust has been working tirelessly towards creating a more inclusive society.

It has urged chief minister Naveen Patnaik to intervene, claiming that it is no longer able to run these units, which were set up at an averaged investment of about Rs 7 crore.
