In an interesting turn of even, Union Rural Development Minister Chaudhary Birender Singh has revealed that over 108 Members of Parliament have not yet adopted a village under the ‘Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’.

According to Singh, out of the 108 members, 55 are from the state of West Bengal. As far as Delhi MPs are concerned, none of them have identified a single village under the initiative.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had initiated the scheme of ‘Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana’. The PM had invited all MPs to adopt at least on village in order to develop a demand-driven model instead of a supply-driven model. The prime aim was to encourage the participation of the masses. PM also gave a free chance to the MPs to pick any village in their constituency, except the ones that they are originally a native of or their in-laws’ village.
