Brijmohan Agrawal

If the best minister can be described as the one who understands the needs of public at large and plans to fulfill those needs by taking all measures to do so; If he can be described as the one who listens to public’s grievances with a compassionate mind and works with a goal to satisfy their grievances; If the best minister can be described as the one who is accessible to people without any hassles and who always lends his ears to listen to them; who leads from the front and with his vision and innovative approach, works towards making people’s life easier and happier; then in Chhattisgarh that minister is Brijmohan Agrawal.

He can undoubtedly be named as the best minister in Chhattisgarh. As Agriculture minister, he created an international platform for the farming community of India and the world so that they can interact with each other, learn from each other and implement innovative and latest agricultural techniques in their fields to yield better crops and better incomes. As minister for fisheries and animal husbandry also, he has performed with the same futuristic approach. Introducing new techniques of fish farming, sourcing latest equipment for fishermen, developing latest breeds of livestock have been his focus during last five years. 

As Irrigation Minister, his vision and focus on creating low cost anicuts to control and regulate water resources for irrigation and water supply for drinking, sanitation and all other purposes throughout the year without any interruption even in the summer seasons. Thousands of such anicuts have been constructed across the state of Chhattisgarh during his regime as Irrigation and Water Resources Minister.

Last but by no means least, his performance as the minister of Religious Trusts and Endowments has also been unprecedentedly outstanding. His decision to magnify a small annual festival Pannu Mela of Rajim as the fifth Kumbh of India has created nothing short of a history. In 2018, the Kumbh entered its thirteenth year and emerged as the Kumbh Kalpa with an ever soaring popularity among the pilgrims from all over India and even abroad. The year 2018 shall also be remembered for long for creating two world records – a) lighting up of over three hundred thousand earthen lamps around the Kumbh area and b) over 2100 people blowing conch shells at the same time to produce a never before sound of so many conch shells all together.

Apart from the current portfolios, stories of his great works are told be common people whenever they refer to the name Brijmohan. As Minister Tourism, his focus was to bring all the places of pilgrimage on the national map to foster tourism in this state of forests and temples. As Sports Minister his contribution in the field of sports by means of thinking, planning and constructing a world class stadium - Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium at Naya Raipur, now Atal Nagar will always be remembered by the state. His efforts made Chhattisgarh to boast of a state-of-the-art stadium with a capacity of sixty five thousand people. This stadium is also a souvenir of his commitment towards his duty as he got its work completed on a war footing in a record 45 days time.
