Gramoday Se Bharat Uday Benefits:
PM Modi introduced the ‘Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday Abhiyan’ (Self-Governance Campaign) on the 125th birthday anniversary. The campaign aimed at generating national social harmony efforts across villages, strengthening Panchayati Raj, supporting rural development and promoting farmers’ progress.
The campaign ran for ten days, i.e. on April 24, 2016. Hon’ble Prime Minister, National Panchayati Raj Day will address all the country’s Gram Sabhas in Jamshedpur was transmitted to all country’s villages where villagers gathered to listen to the Prime Minister’s address.
In these ten days different programmes were held, such as the Social Harmony Programme, village farmers’ assemblies, and Gram sabha meetings, to encourage information on various government schemes, agriculture promotion initiatives, etc.
It’s the honorable Premier’s campaign to move government focus from top to bottom. Campaigns like social harmony are an innovation in that respect, where social connection is sometimes mis-nominated even today in villages. The initiative aims to promote social cohesion in this respect.
India is a village nation. The proper development of the country is indeed farced unless the villages expand. The most significant section of the young people in the villages need adequate encouragement to ascend socioeconomic levels.
It is time for Indians to use it in a righteous and governmental way, with various schemes at the disposal of people, so long as the poorest of the poor in the village becomes empowered.
