New Delhi, [India], Sept 22 (ANI): In a bid to woo investors, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Thursday exuded confidence and said that his state is a heaven when it comes to investment.

Rubbishing the reports of hindrances created by naxals, Singh said leaving few areas the state is purely safe.

"Come to Chhattisgarh and you will not look any further away for a place to invest in," said Singh while addressing an investors meet here.

"People think there's Naxal problem it is not true. Chhattisgarh is 101 percent safe, cities stay lively," he added.

Singh earlier this month also inaugurated 'Startup Chhattisgarh ' which aimed to give impetus to startup projects in the state.
