National Panchayati Raj day is a national designated day that is celebrated on April 24 each year, by the Ministry of the Panchayati Raj. It was inaugurated by Ex Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, in 2010 he’d stated that it was necessary that the Panchayat’s worked in perfect harmony and properly, so that there could be developments across the nation and the maoist threat could be avoided. Next, when Narendra Modi came into power he removed the notion of Sarpanch Pati from the panchayat’s which meant that the husbands of women who were elected in power, had until then, exerted a great amount of power over what decisions were taken, thus nullifying the agency that has been given to them.
Ministry of Panchayati Raj has been working for the welfare of the Panchayat’s and overseeing the matters relating to it, for example, holding elections at appropriate times, setting up State Finance Commissions and to make sure that they’re implemented.
Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to launch the Rashtriya Gramin Swaraj Abhiyan in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh. He is also going to show a map, that has been made for the villages, and a plan that is going to illustrate the upcoming developments that are going to be made in the area, along with a LPG bottling plant of Indian Oil Corporation at Maneri, which is situated at the Mandla district. He is also going to unveil a government directory for the occasion.
