The Minister for Rural Development, Panchayati Raj and Drinking Water and Sanitation Shri Narendra Singh Tomar said that the real development of India is closely linked to the development of rural India. Talking to the media after taking charge of the new ministries here, Shri Tomar said, he will make all efforts to give concrete shape to Prime Minister’s dream of inclusive development. He said, even the last general budget embodied the philosophy of rural re-generation and the budget allocation for rural schemes were testimony for the same. In reply to a question that he had been assigned a high profile ministry, Shri Tomar said, whatever role the party would assign to him, he will try to do justice to that as a simple party worker. He was the Minister of Steel and Mines before moving to his new assignments.
Praising the outgoing Minister, Shri Birender Singh for the dynamism imparted to implementation of schemes like MGNREGA and PMGSY, Shri Tomar said, the positive spirit was quite visible during the campaign of “Gramoday se Bharat Uday”.
