Jai Jal, Jai Jeevan says PM Modi on ‘Jal Jeevan’ mission


Delhi: Stressing on the need to conserve water, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the centre and the states will have to work together to save water and provide it to every household. He said that under the Jal Jeevan Mission, clean water will be provided to all. Addressing the nation on the occasion of the 73rd Independence Day from the ramparts of the Red Fort in the national capital, Prime Minister Modi said that the government had allocated Rs 3.5 lakh crore for the project and the work on the Jal Jeevan Mission will progress with great vigor in the years to come. “The movement towards water conservation has to take place at the grassroots level. It cannot become a mere Government programme. People from all walks of life have to be integrated in this movement,” Modi said in his first Independence Day speech after getting re-elected.
