NITI Aayog to Drive Development in Punjab just Like it Helped UP Develop

After Uttar Pradesh it is time for Punjab to get help from the NITI Aayog for its developmental projects. The Government of Punjab has summoned the team of NITI Aayog to bring a transformation in the big development projects of the state and break them free from the long inertia caused due to various reasons. The Punjab government also wants to uplift the social progress index in the state that is under the rule of Congress and MP Captain Amarinder Singh.

The Chief Minister Narendra Modi will discuss the plan with Punjab’s MP in detail along with NITI’s premier think tank. The MP of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh has previously asked for the Aayog’s help to waive off the impending loans of the farmers in the state of Punjab and to boost the income of the agriculturists.
