These initiatives have been launched to explore the economic and social conditions of the people in the hill/remote areas with the objectives to improve their lives and bring equitable development.

Underlining the objective behind 'Go to Village' mission which is scheduled to be launched on May 1, Hangkhanlian said that there are many people who have not received any benefits from various Govt schemes in the interior areas.

These loopholes should be filled through district administration by going to villages and assessing their conditions.

Not only the DLO/BLOs, but the administrative secretaries and HoDs and even the MLAs and Minister will go to find firsthand account of the people if the need arises, he added.

The Minister also stressed the need for better and efficient coordination among all stake holders including politicians, officers, social/village leaders and Church leaders for efficient implementation of various grassroots developmental schemes.

Hangkhanlian also encouraged the people to get themselves acquainted with State language so that there is oneness and there is no linguistic/communication barrier among the people which will in turn brings development.

DC Shyam Lai Poonia appealed all concerned to live upto the noble teachings and ideas of BR Ambedkar and work together to make the district free from all kinds of discrimination.

He further said that the Gram Swaraj campaign aims to saturate seven schemes namely PMUJ, Saubhagya, Ujala Scheme, PMJDY, PMJJBY, PMSBY and Mission Indradhanush.

To highlight various Government schemes, the Gram Swaraj exercise will continue till May 5, he informed.

The Minister also saluted Dr Ambedkar for being the first Law Minister of the Republic of India and the principal architect of the Constitution.

Kayisii pointed out that Dr Ambedkar had deeply committed and worked for the cause of social justice and fought against inequality in the country.

Dr Ambedkar introduced reservation policy as a necessary special measure for people whose rightful claim to freedom is neglected, he said.

Recalling Ambedkar's birthday observed as "Social Justice Day", Kayisii reflected that Dr Ambedkar had confided that political freedom will be of limited value without social freedom; and that in the absence of economic democracy i.e.freedom of opportunity, political democracy would be under threat.
