BHOPAL: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the Jal Jeevan Mission in Satna district and all other construction works going on in the district should be given top priority in terms of quality and completion within the time-limit.

Action must be ensured against the negligent and those engaged in irregularities. It should be ensured that ration is available uninterruptedly in the right quantity to all the eligible persons.
