Apart from it, the target had been fixed to construct 7,385 houses for rural poor, out of which 4,522 houses had been constructed and work was in progress on the remaining houses which would be completed soon.”

The Chief Minister said that the 681 bighas of land had been transferred for construction of AIIMS at Kothipura in Bilaspur district.
