PM Modi Unveils New Program to Help Aspiring Blocks

In New Delhi: Sankalp Saptaah, a novel week-long program for the nation’s Aspirational Blocks, was introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday at Bharat Mandapam in the nation’s capital. The successful execution of the Aspirational Blocks Programme (ABP) is related to “Sankalp Saptaah.”

On January 7, 2023, the PM announced the nationwide initiative. It seeks to elevate citizens’ quality of life through enhancing block-level government. In 500 Aspirational Blocks spread throughout 329 districts across the nation, it is being implemented. Chintan Shivirs were held nationwide at the village and block levels to implement the Aspirational Blocks Programme and create a successful block development strategy. These chintan shivirs come together in the “Sankalp Saptaah.”

There will be observances of “Sankalp Saptaah” in all 500 Aspirational Blocks. Beginning on October 3 and running through October 9, 2023, each day of “Sankalp Saptaah” will focus on a different development subject, on which all Aspirational Blocks will focus.

‘Sampoorna Swasthya’, ‘Suposhit Pariwaar’, ‘Swachhta’, ‘Krishi’, ‘Shiksha’, and ‘Samridhi Diwas’ are some of the themes for the first six days.

On Sunday, October 9, 2023, a celebration of the week’s worth of labour known as “Sankalp Saptaah – Samavesh Samaroh” will take place.

Around 3,000 panchayat and block-level people’s delegates and functionaries from all around the country will attend the inaugural program in Bharat Mandapam. Additionally, roughly two lakh people will virtually join the program, including farmers, farmers at the block and panchayat level, and people from various walks of life.
