Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Coal Piyush Goyal on Sunday adopted the Golavali village in the Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana.
Goyal, via a series of tweets, shared the information.”In Golavali, Maharashtra today for interaction with villagers. I have adopted the village for development under Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana”
“Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana plans to realize the vision of our Hon’ble PM Shri @narendramodi ji to develop rural India. Am honoured to adopt Golavali, the ancestral village of 2nd Sarsanghchalak Shri Sadashivrao Golwalakar “Guruji”
“The ‘Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’ was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the goal of opening doors for good politics. He had invited all Members of Parliament to select a village to develop on a demand-driven, rather than a supply-driven model, with people’s participation. The MPs were free to pick up any village in their constituency, except their own village or their in-laws village.
Stating that the ‘Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’ would provide a flexible approach towards development, he had expressed hope that the ‘Adarsh grams’ would become places of pilgrimage for people interested in learning about rural development. On Saturday, Union Rural Development Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh said that over 108 MPs are yet to adopt a village under ‘Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’.
