Union Minister for Housing & Urban Development and Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas, Shri Hardeep Singh Puri and Shri V K Saxena, Lt Governor, Delhi, were also present on the occasion.

 

In his address, Shri Amit Shah said that today is an important day for the rural areas of Delhi as piped gas has now started reaching 41 villages of Delhi. He said along with this, various development works for 178 villages are also being kicked off. He said that Rs. 900 crore were allocated for the development of infrastructure and improving standard of living in the villages of Delhi, but this money was not being utilized.

 

 

Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation said that in the last 10 years, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has started a new culture in the country. He said that earlier, leaders used to make many promises, but neither did the public ask for their accounts nor did the leaders go to the public. He said that Prime Minister Modi did what he said and worked to fulfill the promises. He said that Prime Minister Modi gave LPG cylinders to 13 crore mothers of the country, provided piped gas to the homes of 1 crore people, tap water to 14 crore homes, built 14 crore toilets, more than 3 crore houses and provided 5 kilogram free food grains per person per month to 60 crore people. Shri Shah said that last 10 years have been the period of welfare of the poor and development of villages. He said that PM Modi took many steps to bridge the gap between life in cities and villages and that has yielded good results. He said that PM Modi has worked to fulfill the dreams of people of the country, from farmers to science, new Education policy to AI and solar energy to PNG.

 

 

Shri Amit Shah said that whether it is the abolition of Triple Talaq or bringing CAA, PM Modi has created an atmosphere of new zeal, optimism and enthusiasm in the country by fulfilling every promise and that is why the entire country is moving forward today with new confidence to become fully developed and self-reliant by 2047. He said that as part of the transformation that has taken place in the country, PM Modi has brought energy security in place of energy poverty. He said that PM Modi has done the work of making the movement of citizens very easy through the services of CNG buses, metro rail and new trains. Along with this, PM Modi has also launched scheme to provide up to 300 units of free electricity to the poor by installing a solar power plant at their home under the PM-Surya Ghar scheme. Shri Shah said that PM Modi has made the country and every poor person self-reliant in terms of energy.

 

 

The Union Home Minister said that today under the 'Dilli Gramodaya Abhiyan', development works worth Rs 383 crore have been inaugurated in 178 villages. He said that works like construction of better roads, ponds, plantation, drainage, sewage treatment plants, sewage pumping stations, drinking water facilities, provision for rain water harvesting, parks, playgrounds, community halls, rural libraries, solar street lights, installation of CCTV cameras and construction of pastures for animals have been accomplished with a vision.

 

Shri Amit Shah said that there are two types of people in politics, those who do what they say, and, those who do quite opposite of what they say. There are both types of people in Delhi itself. He said that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi fulfills what he says in one single term. He said that the scam of Delhi Jal Board worth Rs 78,000 crore, the scams of repairing the bungalow worth Rs 125 crore and Sheeshmahal worth Rs 9 crore, the scam of classrooms which were not built, the scam in the name of Mohalla Clinic, the scam in the panic button installed in public vehicles, scam in purchase of buses and they say that they are staunchly honest.

 

 

The Union Home Minister said that in the last 10 years, Shri Narendra Modi has made the country prosperous, educated and secure. He said that PM Modi has worked to eliminate terrorism and Naxalism from India, due to which a trust has been built and India's respect has grown in the whole World. He said that today the whole World looks up to India and the Prime Minister of India for the solution of every global issue. 

 

The mission of 'Dilli Gramodaya Abhiyan' is to develop and create necessary infrastructure in the urbanized villages and new urban areas of Delhi, for which a fund of Rs 960 crore has been made available to Delhi Development Authority (DDA). This fund was lying unused with the Revenue Department, GNCTD, for many years and recently the fund was transferred to DDA at the instance of LG, Shri V K Saxena. In a record time of just 3 months projects worth Rs 383 crore have already been sanctioned in various villages of Delhi during the current financial year.

 

The objectives of 'Dilli Gramodaya Abhiyan' include enhancing quality of life of the villagers by identifying and addressing gaps in infrastructure and civic amenities, strategic planning tailored to local needs, fostering active community participation in decision making processes and equitable access to community assets and opportunities.

 

For achieving this objective, Lt Governor has constituted Delhi Village Development & Welfare Committee (DVDWC) under the District Magistrates of the concerned district for identifying the works and schemes to be implemented under this programme in consultation with local representatives, representatives of villagers and local agencies.

 

Under the ‘Dilli Gramodaya Abhiyan’ construction and improvement of roads, drains, footpaths, and central verges, along with horticulture work, provisioning of sewage treatment plants (STPs) and decentralized sewage treatment plants (DSTPs), sewage pumping stations (SPSS), rainwater harvesting, development and maintenance of ponds and water bodies, development of parks, playground and sports facilities, village library, community halls and cattle care etc. are being carried out.

 

Piped Natural Gas (PNG) supply in 41 villages has also been started today by spreading 100 km of pipeline network at a cost of Rs 20 crore by Indraprastha Gas Limited (IGL). The Government of India is committed to provide green energy in the national capital as PNG is safe, affordable and eco-friendly. In Delhi, IGL has reached 1.5 million households, for which 11000 km of pipeline network has been laid. PIGL has covered all the urban areas and is now expanding its network in rural areas as well.
