PM Modi to attend inauguration of birth centenary celebration of Nanaji Deshmukh

Just having best development ideas not enough Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the inauguration of the birth centenary celebration of Nanaji Deshmukh at Indian Agricultural Research Institute at Pusa. Everyone should resolve to work for the village.

He also said that India lacks good governance in some states. Explaining the impact of good governance, he said poorer states had fewer jobs under the government's flagship rural employment scheme - MNREGA - as compared to states that were better off.

The Prime Minister, who formally launched 11 Rural Self-Employment Training Institutes (RSETI) and a mobile app to track development schemes, said democracy was not just about winning elections but ensuring participative development.

The prime minister said schemes should be implemented without diluting the spirit behind it. Modi said, "we are trying for reducing input cost and increasing productivity". Modi said that if that was achieved along with proper water supply and internet connection, teachers, doctors and bureaucrats would not hesitate in living there. "That is why we have been working to overcome this and build toilets in rural areas", he said. "Efforts have to be comprehensive and "outcome driven" not "output driven", he said.

Modi paid floral tributes to Nanaji Deshmukh and Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan and released a commemorative postage stamp on Nanaji Deshmukh.

Hailing the role of Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan in awakening the conscience of the nation, the Prime Minister recalled the inspiring life of JP, who even quit politics and chose to work in the interest of the people.

He added that the "facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages".

Referring to Nanaji Deshmukh and his devotion towards rural development, PM Modi spoke about how the great social activist refused to join the Janata Government as minister, when it was formed in 1977 saying that he would prefer working to make villages self-reliant and free from poverty.

He also launched the DISHA portal, a smart-governance tool developed for MPs and MLAs for monitoring implementation of various programmes and schemes of different ministries in their respective constituencies through a single portal.
