Aspirational Block Programme launched by PM during chief secretaries conference

New Delhi: The "Aspirational Block Programme" was introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who also urged states to adopt the Aspirational District Programme at the block level.

On Saturday, Modi stressed the importance of the four pillars of infrastructure, investment, innovation, and inclusion in his address to the closing session of the three-day conference of chief secretaries of states.

He urged the chief secretaries to take action to elevate MSMEs to the status of "global champions" and integrate them into the global value chain.

"The entire world is looking up to India to bring stability to the global supply chain," the Prime Minister said.

He also highlighted the development of both physical and social infrastructure along with a focus on the enhancement of cyber security.

Launching the 'Aspirational Block Programme', the Prime Minister underscored the success achieved in various aspirational districts in the country under the Aspirational District Programme.

He added that the Aspirational District model should now be taken up to the block level in the form of the Aspirational Block Programme.

Modi asked chief secretaries to implement the 'Aspirational Block Programme' in their respective states.

For the preparations related to G20 meetings in the states, the Prime Minister stressed the importance of involving common citizens.

He said that creative solutions should be envisaged for achieving such 'Citizen Connect'. He also suggested setting up a dedicated team for preparations related to the G20 summit.

Modi also cautioned the states on the challenges posed by drugs, international crimes, terrorism and disinformation originating from foreign soil.

The second edition of the chief secretaries' conference had begun on January 5 in the national capital, while the Prime Minister was present during the deliberations held on January 6 and 7.
