PM bows to Jayprakash Narayan, remembers Nanaji Deshmukh on birth anniversaries”

Efforts have to be comprehensive and "outcome driven", not "output driven", the Prime Minister said. "Just having the best ideas for development are not enough. We are constantly motivated by his noble service and emphasis on rural development", Modi tweeted and shared a video on his life as well. "If people in big households use earthen lamps made by our potters for Deepavali, then you ensure that they too can celebrate the festival", he said.

"In the states where the government machinery is efficient and implements schemes in a time-bound manner, the change is visible", Modi told a gathering here to commemorate the birth centenary of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-Jan Sangh leader Nanaji Deshmukh.

He said, "Strength of a democracy can not be restricted to how many people vote".

He said that desired results can be guaranteed, if the vision of the Central Government, state governemant, Ministers of Parlaiment (MPs), and district units are on the same line, and claimed that DISHA was a step towards the same.

The prime minister said if villages have 24 hour power and water supply and are connected with optical cable for internet, teachers, doctors and bureaucrats would not hesitate in living there.

He also launched Gram Samvaad - a citizen centric mobile app to serve and empower the rural citizens of India, by facilitating single window access for citizens to information at Gram Panchayat level, on various Rural Development programs.

The Prime Minister said that in states with more poverty, work allocation under the MNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act) was less but it was more in states with good governance and lesser poverty.

Speaking on contributions of Loknayak JP, PM Modi said that JP was deeply popular among youngsters. He was actively involved in the Quit India Movement while fighting corruption in the nation.

"Strength of a democracy can not be restricted to how many people vote", the Prime Minister said adding that its essence Jan Bhagidari (public involvement) and integrating people in the development journey of the cities and villages. "At that time, standing shoulder to shoulder with him was Nanaji Deshmukh, who took the blow to protect him", Modi said. When Janata Government was formed in 1977, Nanaji Deshmukh was requested to join the Government as a Minister but he did not do so. The exhibition showcases good practices and applications, as well as schemes and initiatives of the Ministry of Rural Development. The prime minister also digitally inaugurated 11 Rural Self Employment Training Institutes (RSETI) and a Plant Phenomics Facility at Indian Agricultural Research Institute. Together, let us work towards furthering cleanliness in rural areas and making our villages ODF.
