Mriganka Mahato asks a Supplementary Question on Bharat Net Project

FULL TRANSCRIPT

My constituency Purulia is one of the most remote districts in South Bengal and most of the people living there belong to Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe and OBC.

In district meetings most of the BDOs and Panchayat Pradhans complain that they cannot maintain the data of the centrally sponsored programmes like MGNREGS, PMGSY and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana because of the poor connectivity and poor signal strength.

My request to the Minister is that he should take up this matter in mission mode, particularly at the gram panchayat level, to have proper connection so that proper functioning of the centrally sponsored programmes can be maintained by the BDOs and panchayats.
