Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked the district magistrates of various districts of the country “to reach 100 per cent saturation between service and facilities with a time-bound target and create a roadmap of short visions for their respective districts that can be completed in the next two years."
In an interaction with district magistrates via video conferencing, PM Modi further asked the DMs to plan 10 such tasks that can be completed in the next three months which improve the ease of living of people.
"Similarly, plan five such tasks that you can club with Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav," the PM added.
The Prime Minister took a feedback about the progress and present status of implementation of government schemes and programmes in the districts.
He also asked the district magistrates to find the hidden potential of their respective districts.
The 'One district, one product' is based on the potential of districts, PM Modi pointed out.
"It should be a mission for you to give your district a national and global image," he said.
The Prime Minister also urged district magistrates to implement 'Vocal for Local' in their respective districts. "For this, you will have to identify the skill of your respective district and make the value chain stronger," he said.
"India is undergoing a silent revolution in digital infrastructure advancements which should reach every nook and corner of these aspirational districts," the Prime Minister said.
He also said that the government has identified 142 districts from 22 states that lag behind in one or two parameters of the aspirational district. "We have to work in the same collective approach here also, like we do in aspirational districts," the PM said.
He also pointed out that 'Aspirational Districts' are becoming an accelerator instead of being in stagnation.
The Prime Minister highlighted the need to compete and learn from others in the spirit of competitive and cooperative federalism.
"Every district needs to learn from the success of others and also evaluate their challenges," PM Modi said.
PM Modi also called for a direct, emotional connection between administration and public to ensure 'top to bottom' as well as 'bottom to top' governance flow.
" The emotional connection between administration and the public helps the government to implement the schemes in a better way. Detail guidelines should be made for field visits,” he added.
It is aimed at achieving saturation of various schemes by various departments in the districts in mission mode, in convergence with all stakeholders.
