To ensure direct participation of youth in rural development, a scheme will be launched in Haryana on January 12, 2015. The launch will also mark the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.
The state’s agriculture and panchayat Minister Om Parkash Dhankar said, “Under the scheme, special focus would be laid on the infrastructural and economic development of villages, besides personality and skill development of rural youth.”
Two or three youth from every village would be connected with this scheme. It’s expected that more than 60,000 youth in the state would have direct participation in the rural development.
Dhankar stated, “’Gram Gaurav Boards’ would be installed in rural areas on the pattern of a development board on which information regarding achievement of villages and its renowned personalities would be made available. The main aim of Gram Gaurav Board is to motivate the young generation and also to check migration to urban areas.”
