The Chief Minister said people generally talk about negative things while positive side should also be seen.

"Media can play important role in highlighting the works done. Positive works in the state should also be appreciated," she said.

She assured that things are going to change in the state in the next two and half years.

"Our labour sector reforms that aimed at Ease of Doing Business by small units without compromising the interests of labour are the benchmark for the rest of the country.

A large proportion of the proposed projects are in various stages of implementation. The next step is to bring to the farmer the best in technology.
