Narendra Modi launches Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Abhiyan

Mandla : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a scheme that seeks to strengthen the country’s Panchayati Raj system and address critical gaps that hinder its success.
He launched the Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Abhiyan at Ramnagar in this tribal-dominated district of Madhya Pradesh on National Panchayati Raj Day.
The Central government scheme aims at making rural local bodies self-sustainable, financially stable and more efficient.
The programme seeks to address critical gaps that hinder the success of panchayats by enhancing their capacities and effectiveness, and promote devolution of powers and responsibilities.
On the occasion, Modi unveiled a roadmap for development of tribal areas of Madhya Pradesh over the next five years.
