Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India  will launch Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana today for rural development, Saturday, October 11, 2014  on Loknayak Jaiprakash Narayan's anniversary. This is the first step to fulfill dream of Mahatma Gandhi Gram Swaraj and Su-raj.

It is said that soul of India lives in the villages. However, the villages are kept neglected for many years that caused migration to cities. Indian cities and towns become overloaded with population that leads to development of slums. Indian villages are deprived of basic amenities and infrastructure. This project will help developing infrastructure in Indian villages tat in turn develop rural India.

There are 543 members in Loksabha (Lower house of the Indian parliament) and 250 MPs in Rjyasabha (Upper house) totaling to 793 MPs. If each MP takes initiative to develop only a village per year 4000 out of 265000 Gram Panchayats in India will be developed as ideal villages by 2019.

The government will set up two national-level committees for monitoring the implementation of the scheme. Ryral development minister will head a committee and the secretary will head the second having participation of at least a dozen ministries.  

MPs can use their own funds along with central and state government funds for various schemes to develop Adarsh Gram. The program will continue till 2024. Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana will focus on overall village development including  personal development, human development, social development economic development and environmental development, 

Program for developing ideal villages will certainly change overall scenario of India. At least 15 million rural citizens of India will be benefited with in five years if the program implemented in four thousand villages.

Cow and Nature based Rural Economy

Cow progeny can be proved a vital tool on developing rural economy. Some villages may be developed keeping cattle in the center. Agriculture and cattle were interdependent in the past. Cow dung- gas plant will help in solving energy problem in rural area where as the residue (Slurry)  can be used as fertilizers. It will be better if we can make wormy compost from the slurry. 

This will help developing organic farming and reduce dependence on chemical fertilizers such as urea. This will save huge foreign currency and reduce burden of subsidy. Organic farming will not only produce healthy food but also keep the agricultural land healthy. This will reduce water consumption in irrigation too.  

We can also develop several cottage industries  using Gobar and Gomutra. Gomutra (Cattle urine) is a medicine for several diseases and can also be used in preparing pesticides. Gobar (Cow dung) is useful in making several cosmetic products, incense sticks etc. However, we can not forget about milk, the main product till date. 

This path will lead to an Eco-friendly development and will have positive effect on environment. We can develop rural tourism where a Goshala can be a resort or a naturopathy center.  I urge Members of Parliament to think on the matter and implement it when and where possible.
