Jaipur, November 11, 2016: The Rajasthan government has come up with the Smart Village initiative — on the lines of the central government’s Smart Cities Mission.
At the ‘Global Rajasthan Agritech Meet (GRAM) 2016’ in Jaipur, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Thursday said Dhanora village in Dhaulpur was selected to be developed as Smart Gram on pilot basis.
At the same event, she appealed to Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu to look into the subject.
Naidu responded positively, saying: “It will be put before the cabinet for discussion.”
Seventy per cent of our population lives in villages and it cannot be ignored to our journey to become smart, the Rajasthan government said. (IANS)
