The campaign, to promote rural development and social harmony, is being run in 5.5 lakh villages of the country, including more than 6,000 villages in Haryana. It was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 125th birth anniversary of Bhim Rao Ambedkar on April 14.

Describing gram sabha as a strong unit of democracy, Khattar asked people to actively participate in its meetings and draft a framework for development works and future schemes.

The Prime Minister would address all gram panchayats through television and radio from 4.30 PM to 5.30 PM on April 24 on the occasion of Panchayati Raj Day. The broadcast would also be shown at Vikas Rally to be organised in Panchkula that day, the Chief Minister said.

He announced construction of a gymnasium in Shyamtoo village, a community centre between Kanauli and Shyamtoo villages and assured resolving power, water and flies problems.

Panchkula MLA Gian Chand Gupta, said villages would be strengthened through the gram sabhas being organised under the ‘Gram Uday se Bharat Uday’ campaign and development works would be identified and executed with people’s assistance.
