During the interaction with the beneficiaries, Prime Minister said that more than 1.25 crore people have connected with 'Modi ki guarantee' vans in a short time. Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra focuses on saturating Government schemes, making sure they reach citizens across India, PM added.

Dr. Jitendra Singh said, VBSY is one of the pillars of making India a developed country by 2047 when India will be celebrating centenary of its freedom.
