Prime Minister Narendra Modi today exhorted Panchayat representatives to use their tenure to work towards serving the people by aiming to bring about transformative change in the villages.
 
Addessing all Panchayats across the country from Jamshedpur, Jharkhand on the occasion of National Panchayati Raj Day, he said that, in particular, women members could play a leadership role in areas such as toilet construction.
 
The event also marked the culmination of the Gramoday Se Bharat Uday Abhiyan, which began on the 125th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar, at Mhow, on April 14.
 
Mr. Modi emphasized that facilities and services in rural areas, should be at par with the cities. 
 
He urged the Panchayats to pay special attention to children’s education, and said if children stopped attending schools, it should worry the Panchayat members. He encouraged Panchayats to think beyond budgets, and focus on Jan Suvidha. 
 
After the event, the Prime Minister came down from the stage and met some of the Panchayat representatives from across the country who had gathered in Jamshedpur. 
 
He also met the wife and daughter of one of the victims of the Patna bomb blasts, which had occurred during his rally there in 2013.
