AIR Debate - Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday
PM Modi on 125th birth anniversary launched ‘Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday Abhiyan’ (Village Self Governance Campaign). The campaign aims to generate nation-wide efforts to increase social harmony across villages, strengthen Panchayati Raj, promote rural development, and foster farmers’ progress. The campaign will continue go on for 10 days and on 24th April 2016 i.e. National Panchayati Raj Day, Hon’ble Prime Minister will address all the Gram Sabhas of the country from Jamshedpur, which will be beamed to all the villages in the country, where villagers will gather together to listen to the Prime Minister’s address.
In these ten days various programmes like Social harmony programme, Village farmer assemblies, and Gram sabha meetings will be held to foster Information regarding the various schemes of the government, measures to promote agriculture etc will be held.
It is a campaign by the honourable prime minister to shift the focus of governance from top down to bottom up. Campaigns like social harmony are an innovative step in this regard where even today the social harmony in villages is sometimes a misnomer. In this regard the campaign aims to resolve to strengthen social harmony.
On the front of organising village farmer assemblies it is a paradox that most of the recently launched schemes are unknown to farmers. It is necessary to adopt measures so as to create awareness among them and help them to reap the benefits.
On organising village assemblies during the campaign the central topic would be to again create awareness and address all the outstanding issues associated in the village. The news schemes like Skill India, Stand Up India, MUDRA Yojana, MANAS, Nai Manzil etc are some of the newly launched schemes that require awareness. This campaign helps to do the same.
India is a land of villages. It is true that unless villages develop the real progress of the country is farce. The major chunk of the youth which lies in villages need proper guidance to climb up the socio economic ladders. With numerous schemes at the disposal of the people it is high time that people of India use them in a righteous manner and government should leave no stone unturned until the poorest of the poor person in the village gets empowered.
