Preparations are in full swing to make the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s twin programme sucessful in Jamshedpur.
The PM Modi is slated to conclude the Union Government programme-Gramuday Se Bharat Uday and launch online the NTPC’s 800 MW Thermal Power Plant in Patratu inside JRD Tata Sports Complex,Jamshedpur on April 24.
Inside,the state Rural Dervelopment Department,inaddition to Panchahat Raj insitutions-are learnt to be busy mobilising Panchayat representatives to attend the PM’s meeting.Even the district administration is leaving no stone unturned to make the event historic.
Outside,even Jharkhand Tourism Department is set to register its presence by setting up up a stall exhibiting publicity documents and CDs related to Jharkhand Tourism.
Not the least,though there was no sign of improvement in infrastructure-quality of roads and hotels-and increase in number of tourists,the Tourism Department plans to hand over file folders,each containing printed literature describing the tourism sector in Jharkhand-to Jharkhand rural participants in the concluding function of Gramuday Se Bharat Uday.
This has raised eye brows of many critics.”Panchahayat representatives will attend the PM’s function from different rural villages.They are not tourists.Yet,they will be handed over tourism literature”,said a school teacher questioning the Jharkhand Tourism Department’s move.
More,to gain publicity,the state government is going to run a media Center at at the venue with toilet,food and computer linked with Internet and photos as well.
