Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan launched his statewide ‘Jan Aashirwad Yatra’ from Ujjain on Saturday to get the blessings of the people of the state and ensure the return of the BJP to power in the state in the year-end assembly polls.

BJP national president Amit Shah flagged off the CM’s yatra in the afternoon. Earlier in the morning, Chouhan and his wife Sadhna Singh offered prayers at the Mahakal Temple in Ujjain and also planted a sapling on the banks of the Shipra River.

Addressing the large crowd at the Nanakheda stadium in Ujjain, Shah asserted that the yatra would play a crucial role in more effectively spreading the message about all the good work that the BJP government has done so far for the benefit of the people of the state.

Shah exhorted all party workers and supporters to commit themselves and put in all their effort to ensure the BJP’s victory for a fourth consecutive time in MP.
