New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday praised all the people associated with Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) for fulfilling the aspirations of the people of rural India.

He highlighted the importance of panchayats in the rural India and in transforming the country. “On #NationalPanchayatiRajDay, I salute all the hardworking individuals (who are) serving the people through Panchayati Raj institutions across India,” he tweeted.

 

“Panchayats are effective ways to fulfil aspirations of people in rural India. They are playing a vital role in India’s transformation.”

He said his government, through all-round progress and grassroots-level participation, is working towards making ‘Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday’ (development of village will develop India) campaign a reality.

The campaign, launched by the PM in April last year, aims at generating nationwide efforts to strengthen panchayati raj, promote rural development, and foster farmers’ progress.
