Jal Jeevan mission driven by villages, women: PM

NEW DELHI: With the country adding over five crore rural households with tap water connections in the past two years under the Centre’s flagship Jal Jeevan Mission (JJM), PM Modi on Saturday said JJM’s vison was not just to provide water but it was also a “big movement of decentralisation”.
“This is a village-driven women-driven movement,” said the PM, while virtually addressing the village water and sanitation committees (VWSCs) on Gandhi Jayanti. The VWSCs are a key component of implementing the JJM, which aims to provide tap water connections to all rural households by 2024
He underlined how the JJM was in sync with Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of ‘Gram Swaraj’ (village self-governance). The PM launched a dedication fund to tap private donors to give a boost to the Mission through public participation, and released a mobile App for improving awareness among stakeholders and for greater transparency and accountability of schemes under the JJM.
