PM Modi pitches for development of weaker districts of the country

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday stressed on the need to work towards the development of weaker districts of the country.

Mr Modi said this after inaugurating the two-day National Legislators Conference at the Central Hall of Parliament.

He said, the government has identified 115 districts which are weaker on various parameters of development.

He said, it is now essential to identify the areas where these districts need improvement and then address the shortcomings so that they can come at par with best performing districts.

Mr Modi said, working on these aspirational districts will improve India's standing in the Human Development Index. He said, a spirit of competitive and cooperative federalism is very good for the country.

AIR correspondent reports that the theme of the two day Conference is We For Development.

The Conference aims at providing a platform to Members of Parliament, Legislative Assemblies and Legislative Councils across the country to share their experiences and to develop a perspective on developmental issues in the light of sustainable development Goals.

The Conference also offers special opportunity to the delegates whose constituencies have greater possibilities and aspirations of development.
