Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday adopted Keorak village in Kaithal district to develop it as 'adarsh gram' or model village.
An official spokesperson said Keorak was the 25th village in the state to have been adopted by MLAs for development as model villages under Vidhayak Adarsh Gram Yojana (MLAs model village scheme).
He said the main objective of the scheme was to trigger processes leading to holistic development of the identified village panchayats.
The spokesperson said the scheme aimed at improving the standard of living and quality of life of all sections of the population by improving basic amenities, better livelihood opportunities, reduced disparities and access to rights and entitlements.
He said the scheme would also help in generating models of local level development and effective local governance which could motivate and inspire neighbouring village panchayats to learn and adopt.
