  • PM Narendra Modi Speaks on Nanaji Deshmukh Birth Anniversary, Says Essence of Democracy is 'Jan Bhagidari'

The team was deputed on the directions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi after Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam met him and told him about the problem, the sources said.

He will offer floral tributes to Nanaji Deshmukh and Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan. Initiatives have to be completed on time and the fruits of development must reach the intended beneficiaries.

The country, assured the prime minister, has sufficient resources to deliver benefits to the last man in the queue, he added. There should be no dilution or diversion from the spirit it was conceived.

"Our villages are still poisoned with the venom of casteism.... We have to adhere to a timeline for completion", he said.

Modi added that if the villages have 24-hour power and water supply and were connected with optical cable for Internet, teachers, doctors and bureaucrats will come forward on their own to work there. This is the first meeting of any top AIADMK leader with the Prime Minister since the merger of the two factions of the party - one led by Panneerselvam and another by Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami. "Efforts have to be comprehensive and "outcome driven" not "output driven", he said.

Referring to Nanaji Deshmukh and his devotion towards rural development, PM Modi spoke about how the great social activist refused to join the Janata Government as minister, when it was formed in 1977 saying that he would prefer working to make villages self-reliant and free from poverty.

Modi launched the DISHA Portal - a smart governance tool developed for MPs and MLAs for monitoring the implementation of various programmes and schemes of different ministries in their constituencies through a single portal. He will inaugurate a Plant Phenomics Facility of IARI.
