‘Ration Aapke Gram’ scheme in Madhya Pradesh
Under this scheme, the ration will be distributed in the village itself through ration distribution vehicles. Tribal beneficiaries will no longer have to go to the Panchayat Headquarters to get the fair price ration. This will facilitate them in getting ration, as well as save time.
Madhya Pradesh Sickle Cell Mission
The scheme is aimed at spreading awareness among people about genetic disorders including ‘Sickle Cell Anaemia’
50 Eklavya Model Residential Schools
The Prime Minister laid the foundation of 50 Eklavya Model Residential Schools across the country.
Tribute to Babasaheb Purandare
The Prime Minister also paid tributes to Babasaheb Purandare for his contribution in connecting coming generations to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
Babasaheb Purandare was a celebrated historian, author, and theatre personality. He was famous for his work on Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
The author started writing tales related to the period of Shivaji’s reign at a very young age, which was later compiled into the book titled, ‘Thinagya’. His other renowned books include Raja Shiva Chatrapati and Kesari.
He also directed ‘Jaanta Raja’, which is a popular play on Chhatrapati’s life.
