In an exclusive interview with Zee Business Managing Editor Anil Singhvi, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister (CM) Shivraj Singh Chouhan has declared that COVID-19 pandemic is fully under control in the entire state including Indore and Bhopal. Chouhan went on to add that this became possible due to the testing mechanism established by the state government after taking over from the previous government.
Speaking with Anil Singhvi on the current status of COVID-19 pandemic in the entire state, CM Chouhan said, "The total number of active cases in the state is around 1800, which is satisfactory because cases in Indore and Bhopal had started to come at a faster rate when we had taken over from the previous government. But, we immediately established a testing mechanism that helped us put the brakes on the spread of COVID-19 pandemic."

On migrant labourers who are stranded outside the state who want to come back to MP, CM Chouhan said, "We have established 200 lines for registration of the state labourers stranded outside the state. On the basis of registration being done through the established lines, the total number of Madhya Pradesh labourers who want to come back to their home is 3.9 lakh and out of that we have already brought back nearly 1.25 lakh labourers caught in other states."
Chouhan said that the state government has been in continuous touch with the Ministry of Railways and let them know that Madhya Pradesh needs 51 special trains to bring back all those 3.9 lakh stranded labourers.
