Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra reaches Punjab, Himachal; empowers citizens about central schemes
As part of the programme's outreach, officials and PRI members spread awareness across Punjab and Himachal Pradesh about government schemes and guided them on how to access the benefits.
The Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, aimed at informing and empowering citizens about the Centre's welfare measures, was observed in different village panchayats of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh on Saturday. As part of the programme's outreach, officials and PRI members spread awareness across Punjab and Himachal Pradesh about government schemes and guided them on how to access the benefits.
Panchayati Raj Institution (PRI) is a system of rural local self-government in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the 'Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra' on the occasion of Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas earlier this month.
The PM also flagged off IEC (Information, Education and Communication) vans in Khunti, Jharkhand, marking the launch of the 'Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra'. Each day, the vans will make two halts in prominent places, facilitating health camps, Aadhar enrollment, and other essential services.
The yatra is meant for the districts with significant tribal populations initially and by January 25, next year, it will cover all districts across the country. Designed as a multifaceted approach towards development, Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra aims to extend the advantages of government schemes to all segments of society, showcasing a concerted effort towards inclusive development.
Ground activities will include various Jan Bhagidari events, such as interactions with beneficiaries, celebrations of Gram Panchayat achievements, on-the-spot quiz competitions, and health camps. The overarching goal of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra is to raise awareness and facilitate the delivery of welfare scheme benefits, spanning sanitation, financial services, electricity, housing, and more.
Highlighted schemes include Ayushman Bharat, PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana, and PM Awas Yojana, among others. (ANI)
