One Lakh Water Connections Are Being Given Every Day In The Country: PM Narendra Modi

Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that one lakh water connections are being given every day in the country and said that this has become possible because the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ is moving forward as a mass movement.

His remarks came today after laying the foundation stone of the Manipur Water Supply Project through video conferencing.

The Prime Minister said, “Today, about one lakh water connections are being given in the country every day. Every day, we are removing such a huge concern of water from the lives of one lakh mothers and sisters.”

“This boom is also possible because the ‘Jal Jeevan Mission’ is moving forward as a mass movement. The people of the village, especially the sisters and the public representatives are deciding where the pipes will be laid, where the water will be sourced, where the tank will be built, and how much budget will be made,” he said.
