On National Panchayati Raj Day on Friday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah extended his greetings to the people associated with the development and welfare of rural India. Highlighting the importance of the Panchayati Raj system in the country, Home Minister said that rural India is the foundation of our culture and prosperity and the Panchayati Raj system has done the work of giving it strength.

'Indian Constitution strengthened the gram panchayats'

He added that the development of India lies in the development of rural India and that is why the Indian constitution strengthened the gram panchayats more and established them as 'institutions of self-government'.

Taking to Twitter, Amit Shah said that PM Modi's government has worked to strengthen the Panchayati Raj by placing rural India and farmers at the centre of every policy and decision. "By providing electricity and roads in every village, home to the homeless and toilets and cooking gas to every house, Modiji made every panchayat participate in the journey of new India," he said.

'Unprecedented pace and direction to the development...'

"With many welfare schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana - Grameen, Kisan Samman Nidhi, Crop Insurance Scheme, the Modi government gave an unprecedented pace and direction to the development of farmers and rural India. On National Panchayati Raj Day, I congratulate all those associated with the development and welfare of rural India," Shah said in another tweet.
