PM has announced that as the Lok Sabha Member of Parliament from Varanasi, he had selected Jayapur as the village under Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana.
It is not MPs who are taking guardianship of the village under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, but villagers who were taking MPs under their wing, through this scheme. A good public representative has a lot to learn from villagers, their wealth of experience and their insights on solving problems. Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana does not mean infusing additional funds in a village, but ensuring that schemes are properly implemented, and the entire village participates in solving problems and ensuring development. There is a need to emphasis on generating social consciousness, and making significant achievements through the collective will of the people.
