Bhopal: The civil services are not a means of making money, said Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on October 13, 2021.
“The civil services are not a means of making money, but means of learning and serving the nation. Even today, many administrators are remembered for their actions. Civil services also become a medium of making history,” Chouhan said in his address at ‘Safalta ke Mantra’ programme at Minto Hall.
The programme was organised to honour the students who have been selected in the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) main examination.
“Students from Madhya Pradesh have proved this with their selection in the UPSC main examination in almost double the number this year. Madhya Pradesh government will provide all possible facilities for competitive examinations to students,” the Chief Minister announced.
On average, 15 to 20 students from Madhya Pradesh are selected in the Union Public Service Commission examination every year. For the first time in the state, 38 students have been selected in the UPSC examination.
“It is a matter of pride to be selected in an examination like UPSC, but selected students must work in such a manner that after joining the service they should always be remembered. They should have affection for the common man and also contribute immensely to the creation of the country and the state,” said Chouhan.
College students, as well as students of class 11th and 12th, were also present, who have to appear in various competitive examinations in the coming years.
Scores of students heard the speech of Chouhan on various social media platforms.
Giving success mantra to students, the Chief Minister said that students can achieve the greatest success through hard work, self-confidence, concentration, strong willpower and constant efforts.
If every student chooses a career according to his ability and interest, the chances of success increase, said Chouhan.
The highlight of the programme was that all the selected successful students were sitting on the dais.
A short film focusing on the success of the students was also screened by the Higher Education Department in the programme. Various videos of selected students from real-life events such as their mode of study, sports activities and spending time in the kitchen have been included in this short film. (Press Release)
