Tamil Nadu Dy CM O Panneerselvam to meet PM Modi today

India has no dearth of resources required for development but it is wanting in good governance, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday.

He also said that India lacks good governance in some states. "People have no savings to spend, just because of PM's personal ambitions", said Singh while noting that the controversial demonetisation and GST decisions had hit the economy. This is the first meeting of any top AIADMK leader with the Prime Minister since the merger of the two factions of the party - one led by Panneerselvam and another by Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami. "We also have to adhere to the timeline for its completion", Modi said. Modi said that if that was achieved along with proper water supply and internet connection, teachers, doctors and bureaucrats would not hesitate in living there.

Referring to efforts being made to end the practice of open defecation, he said an increasing number of villages are now naming toilets as "izzat ghar" (house of honour) as women do not have to relieve themselves in the open anymore.

Though heavy blows landed on Jayaprakash Narayan's collar bones, elbows and legs and made him senseless, Nanajee, then a Jan Sangh leader sprang to his leader's protection, covered him taking down most of the blows aimed at JP.

"The likes of Loknayak JP and (Ram Manohar) Lohia were active during the "Quit India" movement inspired by the clarion call of Mahatma Gandhi". At an event in Delhi, the Prime Minister also released a commemorative postage stamp on Nanaji Deshmukh.

The Prime Minister also launched Gram Samvaad - a citizen-centric mobile app meant for facilitating single-window access for citizens to information at the gram panchayat level on various rural development programmes. His leadership rattled those in power that time and during a march he was even attacked. He did pioneering work towards poverty alleviation, rural health, rural education and took forward the legacy of Pt. Deendayal Upadhyaya for nation building.

PM launched the DISHA portal that aims at coordination and monitoring of development works at the district level. He will inaugurate a Plant Phenomics Facility of IARI.
