“Let there be no apprehensions in this regard,” he said.

His statement comes amid speculation that some ‘disgruntled’ MLAs were being wooed by BJP and there was factionalism in Congress and Janata Dal(S) on several issues that affect the functioning of the government.

“There may be several problems… some sections of people may feel that the government will fall in 24 hours.

Amid all this, the government with stability, is working for the development of the state, its people, and providing employment to youth,” he added.

The chief minister said the government was moving in the right direction to implement people-friendly programmes and taking steps towards industrialisation.
