This yatra is a nationwide endeavor to achieve the full implementation of government flagship schemes, ensuring timely benefits for all targeted recipients. The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) issued a statement outlining the purpose of this nationwide journey.
In the course of the event, PM Modi introduced a program to escalate the count of Jan Aushadhi Kendras across the country. Furthermore, he inaugurated the 10,000th Jan Aushadi Kendra at AIIMS, Deoghar, dedicating it to the nation. Another launch during the event was the ‘Drone Didi Yojana,’ aiming to supply drones to 15,000 selected women Self Help Groups from 2024-25 to 2025-2026. These drones will be utilized to offer rental services to farmers for agricultural purposes.
