Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel has launched Smart Village program on the occasion of completion of two years of her Government. Addressing the launching function at Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar, the CM said, 300 villages will be selected for Smart Village program.
These villages will get 80 lakh to 2 crore rupees cash assistance from the state government to improve public facilities in the villages. On this occasion, the Sarpanchs of villages having 100 percent completion of toilet targets have been felicitated.
The smart village is another platform that brings the state and church together to make the difference in the lives of poor tribal people in unreached villages. It is building up of a complete village, self-reliant by mobilizing renewable energy and complete participation of people in all development towards a smart village or a model village among Indian villages.
So let’s do:
1. Who is the Chief minister of Gujrat ?
2. Name the state, which has launched Smart Village program ?
