PM inaugurates two-day National Legislators Conference on 'We For Development'

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said legislators needed to work on "aspirational districts" to improve India's standing in HDI.

Inaugurating the National Legislators Conference in the Central Hall of Parliament here, Modi also pitched for posting young and motivated IAS officers in these 115 districts for quicker results.

The Prime Minister said 115 "aspirational districts" had been identified by the Niti Aayog across the country on the basis of 48 parameters of development.

Union Ministers, MPs and MLAs from across the country attended the conference organised by the Lok Sabha Speaker.

If all children go to school and all households get electricity, then it would be a step towards social justice, he said.

Modi said a shortage of resources was not the reason for a lack of development and that it took good governance, effective implementation of schemes and focused efforts to ensure development. "Our aim is social justice". Wherever officials have worked with people and involved them with the development process, the results are transformative.

That parliamentarians and legislators from different parties are sitting together on the issue of development is a living example of federalism, the Prime Minister said and asked them to work like a "helping hand" to state machinery.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, Mr Modi said, "There are a number of places and districts in the country that lag behind the others in terms of the facilities and infrastructure. The principle of social justice inspires us for this", Modi said.

Mr. Modi also called for posting young officers with a sense of objective as district magistrates in these places. Modi felt India had manpower, skills and resources and the need of the hour was to work in a mission mode to bring about positive change.
