Har Ghar Nal Yojna, an initiative by the Modi government, was introduced today to help people where scarcity of water has occurred.
The tap water supply launch for Sonbhadra and Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh was introduced today, while the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath was present in Sonbhadra, through a video conference.
What was the need for such a scheme?
₹5555.38 crore scheme has been targeted for providing water supply to around 41 lakh villagers belonging to the two districts.
While PM Modi was addressing the scarcity of water problem in the districts and launching Har Ghar Nal Yojana, he also mentioned that the region is full of natural resources but was ignored since independence.
It is still a drought area despite the fact that the region has so many rivers.
PM Modi also mentioned that one of their motives was to empower the farmers which is clearly visible because farmers have also now supported the government.
Empowering the farmers by prioritizing their village, the villagers, the tribal, and the poor self-contained, the government has brought forward schemes for their betterment.
How will the scheme be taken forward?
Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, mentioned that since the Independence only 398 villages had the access to the water supplied through the pipeline but according to their new scheme, the government will ensure that the water will be supplied through the pipelines to 2,995 villages in the two districts.
The scheme is aimed towards benefiting 21,87,980 villagers in Mirzapur and 19,53,458 in Sonbhadra.
The government will also make sure that the water provided to the families will be purified from lakes and rivers before the supply.
The amount used for the development:
A total of ₹5555.38 crores will be used for benefiting the villagers. From this, ₹3212.18 will be spent in Sonbhadra and ₹2343.20 will be spent in Mirzapur.
