The Union Minister of State for Education was in the state to review NITI Aayog’s aspirational district programme.

Namsai is one of the 112 districts of the country under the Aspirational District Programme (ADP) of the NITI Aayog, which was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in January 2018.

The aspirational districts have been identified by NITI AAYOG based upon indicators from health and nutrition, education, agriculture and water resources, financial inclusion and skill development which have an impact on human development index (HDI).

The minister lauded the district administration for achieving various targets and took a comprehensive sector-wise review of the ADP, an official statement said.

During his interaction with the officers, the minister sought information on the gaps and observations made in the field that needed to be focused on.

On the Jal Jeevan Mission, the minister urged the officials to create awareness among the masses to instill in them a sense of ownership.

“Team Namsai can change the economy, healthcare, education, and other sectors of the district, for which all the stakeholders should aim to work dedicatedly to make historic changes for the district,” the minister stressed.
