PM to inaugurate birth centenary celebrations of Nanaji Deshmukh

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurates the Nanaji Deshmukh Plant Phenomics Centre in New Delhi during the Jana Sangh and RSS leader's birth centenary celebrations on Wednesday. Everyone should resolve to work for the villages. He said lack of "good governance" was what was holding back the desired results. Explaining the impact of good governance, he said poorer states had fewer jobs under the government's flagship rural employment scheme - MNREGA - as compared to states that were better off.

He said that while that is "important, but the real essence of a democracy is jan bhagidari or public participation".

Taking a dig at the recent controversy around BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay Shah, Singh said would the prime minister follow his model of wealth enhancement to boost the sagging economy. Modi said, "we are trying for reducing input cost and increasing productivity". "That is why we have been working to overcome this and build toilets in rural areas", he said. Address an audience of about 10,000 people, drawn from Self Help Groups, Panchayats, water conservation innovators, and beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana at Pusa, PM Modi stressed on the need for comprehensive and "outcome driven" efforts and not "output driven" ones.

He added that the "facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages".

"Loknayak JP fought against corruption". He also informed how his leadership rattled those in power that time.
