PM Modi announced “Sānsad Adarsh Grām Yojana”
While delivering his maiden Independence Day speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a scheme on behalf of the Member of Parliament- ‘Sansad Aadarsh Gram Yojana’.
He called upon the Members of Parliament (MPs) to select any one of the villages having population of 3 to 5 thousand in their constituency. They must fix parameters according to the time, space and situation of that locality. It will include the conditions of health, cleanliness, atmosphere, greenery, cordiality etc. On the basis of those parameters, each of the MPs should make one village of his or her constituency a Model Village by 2016. After 2016, select two more villages for this purpose, before the General Elections in 2019. And after 2019, each Member of Parliament, during his/her tenure of 5 years must establish at-least five model villages in his/her area.
He also urged the Members of Parliament from urban areas to adopt one village of their choice. He also called upon the MPs from Rajya Sabha to adopt one of the villages. He hopes that if one model village is established in each district of India then the surrounding villages shall be automatically inspired to follow that model. He promised to present a complete blueprint of “Sānsad Adharsh Grām Yojana” (Members of Parliament Model Village Scheme) before all Members of Parliament and State Governments on the birth anniversary of Jai Prakash Narayan Ji on coming October 11, 2014.
