PM attends inauguration of birth centenary celebration of Nanaji Deshmukh

New Delhi, Oct 11 :-- Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Wednesday, attended the inauguration of the birth centenary celebration of Nanaji Deshmukh at IARI at Pusa in New Delhi.

 

Earlier in the day, the PM remembered Nanaji Deshmukh and said, "Remembering Nanaji Deshmukh on his birth anniversary. We are constantly motivated by his noble service and emphasis on rural development."

 

 The Prime Minister visited an exhibition on the theme "technology and rural life."

 

The exhibition showcases good practices and applications, as well as schemes and initiatives of the Ministry of Rural Development.

 

He interacted with some innovators and beneficiaries.

 

The Prime Minister offered floral tributes to Nanaji Deshmukh and Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan.

 

He released a commemorative postage stamp on Nanaji Deshmukh.

 

The Prime Minister launched the DISHA Portal - a smart governance tool developed for MPs and MLAs for monitoring of implementation of various Programmes and Schemes of different Ministries in their constituency through a single portal.

 

As on date, integration of dataset of 41 programmes and schemes of 20 ministries has been achieved on this portal.

 

He also launched Gram Samvaad - a citizen centric mobile app to serve and empower the rural citizens of India, by facilitating single window access for citizens to information at Gram Panchayat level, on various Rural Development programs. The App presently covers seven programs of the Ministry of Rural Development.

 

The Prime Minister digitally inaugurated 11 Rural Self Employment Training Institutes (RSETI) Buildings and a Plant Phenomics Facility at IARI.

 

 

 

 The Prime Minister addressed an audience of over 10,000 people, drawn from Self Help Groups, Panchayats, water conservation innovators, and beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

 

He said that Oct 11 marks the birth anniversary of two great leaders - Nanaji Deshmukh and Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan, who devoted their life to the betterment of the nation.

 

The Prime Minister said that Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan was deeply popular among youth. The likes of Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan and Dr. Lohia were active during the 'Quit India' movement, inspired by the clarion call of Mahatma Gandhi, he added.

 

The Prime Minister said that Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan was never interested in power politics, and fought corruption. He said Nanaji Deshmukh also preferred to devote himself towards rural development and making our villages self-reliant, and free from poverty.

 

Just having the best ideas for development are not enough, the Prime Minister said.

 

He added that initiatives have to be completed on time and the fruits of development must reach the intended beneficiaries.

 

'Efforts have to be comprehensive and 'outcome driven', not 'output driven', the Prime Minister said.

 

The Prime Minister said that facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages. He said that the real essence of a democracy is Jan Bhagidari and integrating people in the development journey of cities, and villages. Regular interaction with governments is required, he added.

 

Noting that lack of sanitation facilities is adversely impacting the development journey of villages, the Prime Minister said that is why the Government has been working to build toilets in rural areas.
