Itanagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday, during an outreach program, spoke to Lakar Paleng from Namsai in Arunachal Pradesh who had availed benefits from central government schemes.

Paleng, during the interaction, spoke about the house that he had built with government assistance, according to an official release. The Arunachal man also informed the Prime Minister about the transformation brought about by the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ in Namsai. Through this scheme, the federal government plans to provide adequate drinking water facilities through tap connections to all households in rural India by 2024.

When Lakar greeted the Prime Minister with a ‘Jai Hind’ (victory to India), Modi remarked that it is a very popular greeting in the frontier state. “It is always a pleasure to interact with the people of Arunachal”, noted the Prime Minister.

Lakar was informed about the ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’ by the local panchayat and the inherent message of making India a developed nation by 2047 “was very clear to him”, added the official release. The Prime Minister has asked villagers to form 5 teams and go to five villages to inform them about the new undertaking.

The Prime Minister interacted with several beneficiaries of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, launched by him weeks ago in Jharkhand, via video conferencing today.

“Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra aims to achieve saturation of government schemes and ensure benefits reach citizens across the country”, the Prime Minister posted on X (formerly Twitter), outlaying the mission of the ongoing drive.
