SRINAGAR: The nation is celebrating the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate the Indian Independence. As a part of this momentous occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will interact with the beneficiaries of about sixteen schemes/Progammes spanning nine Ministries/Departments of the Government of India.
According to an official spokesman the schemes with whose beneficiaries Prime Minister will interact are: Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana (both Grameen & Urban), Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi, Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana, POSHAN Abhiyan, Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana, Swachh Bharat Mission (both Grameen & Urban), Jal Jeevan Mission & AMRUT, Pradhan Mantri SVANidhi Scheme,
One Nation One Ration Card, Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, Ayushman Bharat PM Jan Arogya Yojana, Ayushman Bharat Health and Wellness Centre, Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana.
The number of beneficiaries of many of the schemes runs in crores and in several cases in tens of crores.
All these schemes address the poorest segments of population; therefore, the event is aptly named as “Garib Kalyan Sammelan”. The principal objective of the interaction is not only to understand how these schemes have brought about ease of living for the citizens, but also to explore possibility of convergence and saturation. This will also give an opportunity to assess the citizens’ aspiration for India as it completes 100 years of independence in the year 2047.
The Sammelan is one of the largest ever single-event nationwide interaction wherein Hon’ble Prime Minister will interact with beneficiaries about the impact that the wide-ranging schemes/programmes covering housing, availability of potable water, food, health and nutrition, livelihood and financial inclusion etc., have had on their lives.
Jammu Kashmir UT is proud to be a part of this August event and has made all the necessary arrangements for the programme to be held at SKICC, Srinagar from 10 A.M. onwards. The event will be presided over by the Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha and also attended by the Chief Secretary, Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta; Commissioner/Secretary, Rural Development, Mandeep Kaur, PRIs and beneficiaries. The State level event will be linked with the National event at 11.00 A.M. when Hon’ble Prime Minister will be live from Shimla interacting with the beneficiaries with the country.
The national level Sammelan is being held at Shimla on 31.05.2022 wherein Hon’ble Prime Minister will directly interact with the beneficiaries. Hon’ble Prime Minister will also release the 11th installment of the Kisan Samman Nidhi. Hon’ble Prime Minister will also interact with some of the beneficiaries spread across the country through videoconferencing.
The national Sammelan will be telecast live through Doordarshan in its national and regional channels. Provisions have also been made to webcast the national programme through MyGov for which people need to register themselves. It can also be viewed through other social media channels viz., YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
It is expected that this interaction will not only highlight people-centric approach of these schemes leading to ease of living of citizens but will also enlighten the Government on the aspirations of the people and ensure that no one is left behind in the nation’s march to progress.
