MP CM has Q and A session with kids

Bhopal, Nov 14 (UNI) The future generation ought to comprehend tomorrow’s challenges and provide such shape to the country that people can lead a better and respectable existence, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath averred on Thursday.
“The environment, urbanisation and education constitute a three-pronged challenge and not tackling it in time will amount to meting out injustice to our public,” he was officially quoted as saying at his residence while interacting with schoolchildren selected from various districts through a quiz contest.
Responding to a traffic woes-related query posed by a girl from Gwalior, the veteran politician said that the increasing burden of population on cities is a major dare.

“When the cities were constructed and developed, all arrangements were made keeping in mind the existing numbers. Whether it is sewage, potable water or transport facilities, rising urbanisation has made not only congestion but also numerous other problems crop up. Our roads were designed to suit two-wheelers. Today, there is a veritable deluge of four-wheelers. The only solution is that we expand urban areas with complete infrastructure development. If Gurugram, Noida and Navi Mumbai were not constructed, the situation in Delhi and Mumbai would have been worse. Master plans of cities are being prepared,” he explained.
Replying to a question by an Indore-resident student on ‘qualification’ required in politics, Mr Nath said, “My ideal has been late Mrs Indira Gandhi. I studied with her son Sanjay. Rajiv was three years senior to me at the same school. My political career commenced with the Youth Congress. I have learnt that one who utilises his or her power in the interests of the country and the state besides making welfare schemes is eligible to be a true politician.”
