Narendra Singh Tomar
MINISTER FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT, PANCHAYATI RAJ AND DRINKING WATER & SANITATION
TOMAR HAS BEEN FOCUSED on furthering the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Centre allocating Rs 2 lakh crore to gram panchayats for social infrastructure projects in villages. The National Water Quality Sub Mission has been launched to improve water quality. Rural roads got a big push with 130 km of roads reportedly being built daily in 2016-17. The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and its filtering mechanism to ensure only the needy get the benefits, the weeding out of 5.2 million fake MNREGA cards of bogus workers are other achievements.
