Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh: On Tuesday, the Madhya Pradesh Government sanctioned a substantial Rs 24,420 crore subsidy for electricity consumers and approved over 46,000 new job vacancies in the health sector.

The state cabinet, led by CM Yadav, unanimously approved the proposals, which aim to benefit various categories of electricity consumers and enhance the healthcare infrastructure in the state.

Before the meeting commenced, the council of ministers congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his third consecutive term as PM and praised CM Mohan Yadav for the BJP's victory in all 29 Lok Sabha seats in Madhya Pradesh.

Cabinet Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya, briefing the media post-meeting, highlighted the key decisions. "The cabinet expressed its congratulations to CM Yadav for the electoral success and to PM Modi for his third term. Additionally, we acknowledged the inclusion of six members from Madhya Pradesh in the Modi 3.0 cabinet, anticipating their cooperation in the state's development," Vijayvargiya stated.

In the health sector, the cabinet approved crucial measures to improve service quality.

There are 1,214 such positions, with half being filled via promotion and the other half through direct recruitment. Additionally, 46,491 new vacancies will be filled under the Indian Public Health Standards, including Grade 3 and Grade 4 employees and paramedical staff."
