Another Jumla Exposed: Village Adopted By PM Modi Has No Drainage System Or Piped Water Supply, More Than 50% Households Remain Un-Electrified

Nagepur village also does not even have a primary health care centre or a sub health centre.

Under the Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2016, adopted a second village, Varanasi’s Nagepur to ensure its holistic development. As more than two years have passed, the development of the village can only be seen on papers.

According to The Wire report, the village adopted by PM Modi doesn’t have a drainage system. The streets remain waterlogged at all times, which result in breeding of insects and infections.

The households here do not even have access to a piped water supply and so, hand-pumps remain the primary source of fetching drinking water.

A resident of the village said, “Our village being adopted by the prime minister made national and international news, but nothing has happened here, officials come and leave without doing anything.”

Additionally, more than 50 per cent of the households are yet to be electrified.

However, the Modi government did set up a solar plant in Nagepur. But, is it of any good to the villagers? They complain that they have not been fully compensated for the land acquired by the government to build this solar panel or are not paid fairly for taking care of the plant.

One of the villagers said, “I have received Rs. 65,000 so far, although I have incurred expenses worth Rs. 1,95,000.”

Similarly, the state of education here is also nowhere near ideal. The only high school in Nagepur offers classes up to Class 10.

Nagepur village also does not even have a primary health care centre or a sub health centre.

Furthermore, the panchayat here does not have even have a building to carry out their functions.

Interestingly, under the PM’s scheme, Nagepur village has got one very essential commodity for its holistic development- a statue of Ambedkar.
