Now Madhya Pradesh will not lag behind. Chief Minister Chouhan congratulated all the selected students. While encouraging the enthusiasm of the students, Chief Minister Chouhan said that success is independent. If the goal is set and the resolution is strong, then the students make a roadmap and soar to heights with hard work.

They have succeeded by the grace of the Gurus, compassion of God and hard work.
