New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that Aspirational Block Programme will be 100 percent successful just like the aspirational district programme that has changed the lives of over 25 crore people in 112 Indian districts.
PM Modi today launched a unique week-long programme for Aspirational Blocks in the country called ‘Sankalp Saptaah’ at the Bharat Mandapam in the national capital.
“The Aspirational District Programme has changed the lives of more than 25 crore people in 112 districts of the country. There has been a change in the quality of life. I am confident that just as the Aspirational Districts Programme has shown success, similarly the Aspirational Block Programme is going to be 100 percent successful” PM Modi said.
He further said that in contrast to previous administrations that followed a uniform housing model, his government has prioritized the use of locally sourced materials and implemented an owner-driven approach in constitution.
‘Sankalp Saptaah’ is linked to the effective implementation of the Aspirational Block Programme (ABP).
The Prime Minister launched the nationwide programme on January 7, this year. The programme aimed to improve governance at the block level in order to enhance the quality of life of citizens. It is being implemented in 500 Aspirational Blocks across 329 districts in the country.
Chintan shivirs were organized at village and block levels across the country to implement the Aspirational Block Programme and to prepare an effective block development strategy. The ‘Sankalp Saptaah’ is a culmination of these chintan shivirs.
