Budget 2022 will strengthen national security with vibrant border villages: Indian PM Modi
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the migration from border villages is not good for national security, and the current Budget has provisions for developing 'vibrant villages' on the border, while addressing a programme on Aatmanirbhar Arthvyavastha.
The Prime Minister said that Budget 2022 focuses on developing villages at the border while adding that the National Cadet Corps (NCC) Centres will be brought in at schools situated at the border.
"We have decided that we will develop the villages on India's borders. For the same, we are moving forward with a holistic approach. Such villages will have all facilities- electricity, water and others and a special provision has been made in the Budget," said PM Modi.
He further said that the Budget has envisioned a 2,500 km long natural farming corridor along the banks of River Ganga, which will also help the Clean Ganga mission.
PM Modi also said, "This Budget focuses on the poor, middle class and youth and aims to provide them with the basic necessities. Our Government is working on the saturation of basic facilities." He further said that this Budget has several steps to take India on the road towards modernization.
He said that in this year's Budget, there's provision for 80 lakh pucca houses for the poor.
"People, globally, want to see an empowered and strong India. It is imperative for us that we take our country forward at a rapid pace and strengthen it across several sectors," he added.
