Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh): Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said only ‘Smart Cities’ won’t help, thus we have embarked on to make our villages ‘smart’ as well.
“We understand that only Smart Cities won’t help, thus we have embarked on to make our villages smart as well,” said Singh, adding that not just the Government, but the participation of Non-Governmental Organisations are also important in this regard.
Speaking at the inaugural function NGO Swarna Bharath Trust here, Singh said: “It won’t be wrong to say that connectivity revolution in independent India was brought by former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji.”
The function was also attended by Union Minister of Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation and Parliamentary Affairs Muppavarapu Venkaiah Naidu.
