O Panneerselvam meets PM Modi denies having political discussion


Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged government departments to follow an outcome-based approach to ensure comprehensive rural development, and appealed to citizens to use rural products as a "fashion statement" to ensure prosperity of rural artisans. Everyone should resolve to work for the village. He said lack of "good governance" was what was holding back the desired results.

Taking his address further, he said that the essence of democracy is Jan Bhagidari and integrating people in the development journey of the cities and villages.

"We are constantly guided by Nanaji Deshmukh's vision of Gram Uday and are working for the development of our villages", Modi said, paying tributes to the Jana Sangh leader.

Panneerselvam also said that the talk of differences between him and chief minister Palanisamy is false. "We also have to adhere to the timeline for its completion", Modi said.

Referring to efforts being made to end the practice of open defecation, he said an increasing number of villages are now naming toilets as "izzat ghar" (house of honour) as women do not have to relieve themselves in the open anymore. Prime Minister also released a commemorative postage stamp on Nanaji Deshmukh.
