CM asks village surpanchs to give their best for the development of villages

CM criticizes Opposition for causing uproar on the implementation of the concept of samras villages

In a function held at Morbi today the Chief Minister Narendra Modi gave away incentive prizes of Rs. 14.70 crore to 558 village panchayats of the seven districts of Saurashtra and Kutch region. In all, the Chief Minister will distributed incentive prizes of Rs.55.62 crore to 2123 village panchayats in four different zones which were elected samras in the panchayat election of December-2011.

Congratulating the sarpanchs and the villagers the Chief Minister asked them to give their best for the development of the village. “This government has approved grants worth lakhs of rupees for the development of villages. Now, you must do your best work and change the face of villages”, he said. People in the villages have started working for the good of the village, forgetting the mutual enmity. This is the best demonstration of democratic values, he said.

Chief Minister recalled that the Opposition caused uproar when he introduced the tradition of ‘samras village’ in October-2001. “The opposition described the tradition as the murder of democracy. But how can you call it a murder of democracy when, at the same time, you term the unanimous election of the President as the victory of democracy”, he questioned. But when the villages gave huge response to the concept of samras village, the Opposition also accepted the tradition, he said.

Chief Minister said the administration of as many as 290 village panchayats are in the hands of women who were selected unanimously, which is not a matter of small measure. He called upon political analysts and the well-wishers of the women empowerment to come in Gujarat to study the democratic system in the samras villages which are administered by the female sarpanchs.

Criticizing the ban on cotton export imposed by the central government the Chief Minister said that it is a crooked policy of the Centre. The Centre is only concerned with the benefits of vested interests, even though its shameless decisions ruin the farmers of this nation.

This decision of the Centre has badly affected the output of cotton seed oil producing mills. The price of groundnut oil has gone high. But the Centre is not at all ready to shed a single tear for the people who have became victims of the price rise, he said.

Speaking on the occasion Panchayat Minister Narottam Patel said the state government is committed to solve the problems of the villages. The government gives grant to the villages under samras scheme with a view to lead them to prosperity. He also gave details of the schemes such as Tirthgram, Mission Mangalam and Sakhi Mandal, among other.

Education Minister Ramanlal Vora said the State government is determined in providing quality education to the children. He also appealed the gathering to take benefits of various educational schemes which have been implemented by the state government.

Minister of State Vasanbhai Ahir said the State government has actualized the Gandhiji’s notion about villages and panchayats.

Minister of State Kanubhai Bhalala said that due to the efforts put in by the state government through Krishi Mahotsav, the farmers have now become able to get almost double output compare to the past.

Minister of State Parbat Patel gave details of the health related schemes such as 108 ambulance service, Janani Suraksha scheme and Bal Sakhi scheme, among other.

MP Punamben Jat, Parliamentary Secretary L.T.Rajani, Former MP Vijay Rupani, Village Panchayat President Hansaben Paredhi, MLAs Kantibhai Amrutiya, Vandanaben Makwana, Jasuben Korat, Pravin Mankadiya, Dr. Bharat Bodhara, Govind Patel, Bhanuben Babariya, Rajasibhai Jotava, Former MLA Gokaldasbhai Parmar and top government officials were present on the occasion.

“Music is a medium that makes us aware of our worldly duties and it also helps us transcend worldly attachments”
“Experience of Yoga Day has indicated that the world has benefited from Indian heritage and Indian music also has the capacity to stir the depth of the human mind”
“Every person in the world is entitled to know about, learn and get benefits of Indian music. It is our responsibility to take care of that”
“In today's era when technology’s influence is all pervasive, there should be technology and IT revolution in the field of music also”
“Today we are regenerating our centers of art and culture like Kashi”

The Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi paid rich tribute to Pandit Jasraj on the occasion of the Jayanti of the doyen of Indian Classical Music. The Prime Minister talked of the personification of immortal energy of music by Pandit Jasraj and lauded Durga Jasraj and Pandit Shaarang Dev for keeping alive the glorious legacy of the maestro. The Prime Minister was speaking at the launch of the Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation via video conferencing.

The Prime Minister touched upon the vast knowledge imparted by the sages of Indian music tradition. Shri Modi said that the strength to feel the cosmic energy and ability to see music in the flow of universe is what makes Indian Classical music tradition so exceptional. “Music is a medium that makes us aware of our worldly duties and it also helps us transcend worldly attachments” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister praised Pandit Jasraj Cultural Foundation for their goal of preserving India’s rich heritage of art and culture. He asked the Foundation to focus on two key aspects of this age of technology. Firstly, he said that Indian Music should create its identity in this age of globalisation. He said that the experience of Yoga Day has indicated that the world has benefited from Indian heritage and Indian music also has the capacity to stir the depth of the human mind. “Every person in the world is entitled to know about, learn and get benefits of Indian music. It is our responsibility to take care of that”, he said.

Secondly, the Prime Minister said that in today's era when technology’s influence is all pervasive, there should be technology and IT revolution in the field of music also. He called for startups dedicated solely to music, based on Indian instruments and traditions.

He also dwelled on recent efforts to regenerate the centres of culture and art like Kashi. The Prime Minister said that India has shown the way to a secured future to the world through its faith in environment preservation and love for nature. “In this Indian journey of development along with heritage, ‘Sabka Prayas’ should be included”, he concluded.
