Venom of casteism destroying villages: Modi

Thursday, October 12, 2017

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today deplored "destruction" of villages due to "venom of casteism" and said efforts should be made to help them rise above it so that they become inclusive and cohesive entities.

He also said there is a need to create development schemes for rural India that are "outcome oriented".

"Our villages are still poisoned with the venom of casteism...The poison of casteism destroys the village and crushes its dreams.

"We need to make efforts so that the villages rise above casteism and become inclusive and cohesive. Everyone should resolve to work for the village. The government is taking steps to take forward villages," he said.

The prime minister was addressing a gathering here to mark the birth centenary of reformist Nanaji Deshmukh and 115th birth anniversary of socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan.

Batting for an outcome oriented approach to rural development, Modi said the country has sufficient resources to deliver benefits to the last man in queue.
