The Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, a nationwide initiative to inform and empower citizens about the Centre’s flagship schemes, is being run successfully in four districts of Meghalaya as part of the first phase of the campaign. Launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on November 15, 2023, at Khunti, Jharkhand, multiple vans were flagged off simultaneously from various locations with significant tribal population across the country, reaching over 1 lakh people in 259 Gram Panchayats on its first day itself. The aim of the Yatra is to create awareness about government welfare schemes and achieve 100% saturation of these schemes. The initiative encourages citizens to actively participate in the country’s development.
