Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called for a meeting to bring rural infrastructure programmes on right track.
PM Narendra Modi has directed Planning Secretary Sindhushree Khullar to review the progress of central schemes aimed at building basic rural infrastructure and prepare a road map for convergence of ministries.
The directive comes days after the Prime Minister has reviewed the performance of core infrastructure sectors. A senior government official said that Khullar will soon make a presentation to the PM on her assessment, which will include the state of rural houses, toilets, drinking water, power, renewable energy, health and education.
"As directed by the PMO, the secretary last week convened a meeting of secretaries of the concerned ministries to review the progress of central rural development schemes involved in creation of basic infrastructure," the official said.
