Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaking about the government’s vision for rural development, said Rs 25 lakh crore will be spent for infrastructural development in the villages across the country.
“The rural economy of the country is now being given as much attention as never before. Already the work is going on, on the roads of the village. Now in the coming years, Rs 25 lakh crore will be spent to develop infrastructure in the villages. The money will also be used to construct modern storage centres for crops,” he said.
“We have tried to change the situation and have taken steps to solve the problems of farmers permanently,” the Prime Minister added.
“We started the Jal Jeevan Mission as soon as we formed the government for the second time. In the coming years, Rs 3.5 lakh crore will be used for water conservation and building facilities for water conservation,” he said.
“When pure water is made available to everyone, you and your cattle will be healthier. The industry will develop swiftly in drought-hit regions with the proper supply of water. This will provide new sources of employment.”
Moreover, he said that projects undertaken for the development of tribal areas and their self-employment are in full swing. “A comprehensive network of Eklavya Model School is being prepared by the government to enhance the education and skills of tribal children,” he added.
