Taking the conference of Collectors and Officers-in- charge of aspirational districts organised by Niti Aayog as a platform, a group of six officers made presentations on the themes of Nutrition, Education, Basic infrastructure, Agriculture and Water resources, Eradication of Left wing extremism and Financial inclusion and Skill development.

Mukesh Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Dumka district, Jharkhand, gave a presentation on basic infrastructure in the presence of Prime Minister and a host of Central Ministers and secretaries. During his presentation, he stressed on the need to develop basic infrastructure in these regions. Along with emphasis on devising area specific strategy to develop these areas as their requirements differ from other regions.

Further, Kumar focused his presentation on solar farming. He said that there is a need to promote solar farming as it is not only eco-friendly but also sustainable. It also has the potential to meet the requirements of electricity and has high prospects in the tropical regions of the country. He also dwelt upon the government schemes especially, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana as an instrument of change, providing all weather road connectivity to unconnected villages which is certainly having an impact changing the lifestyle of many villagers.

On the occasion he also emphasised on the concept of Panch Mart — an initiative for young village entrepreneurs, launched in all the blocks of Dumka district. It is aimed at providing the beneficiaries of various government schemes good quality building materials at a fair price and to ensure its regular supply.

He also talked about the need for water quality mapping to understand the priority areas for water treatment and drinking water quality monitoring and can also be used for identifying contaminated locations.
