Coordination must

The teamwork of Centre, states and local administrations is yielding good results…Aspirational districts are becoming accelerators of growth instead of impediments.

Addressing an interactive virtual session with the DMs, the PM said, “Aspirational districts are now eliminating barriers to the progress of the country and becoming accelerators of growth instead of impediments.”

He said for the development in aspirational districts, there was a need for direct connect between the administration and the public and it should be at the “emotional level”.

PM Modi said the teamwork of Centre, states and the district administrations had been yielding good results in aspirational districts.

Drawing the attention of the officers towards the changed mindset of the nation, the PM reiterated the country’s goal to achieve 100 per cent saturation of services and facilities.

He told the DMs that every district “needs to learn from the success of others and also evaluate their challenges”. Launched by the PM in January 2018, the aspirational districts programme aims at quickly and effectively transforming 112 most under-developed districts across the country.

The CMs of Gujarat, Karnataka and Chhattisgarh also participated in the programme. Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, gave an overview of the progress and implementation of the programme.
