Importance of Panchayati Raj in Indian Democracy:
Panchayati Raj is an important institution of Indian democracy, which was introduced to provide grassroots-level democracy and empower local communities. It was envisaged as a means to involve the people in the decision-making process and ensure that they have a say in the development of their villages and towns. The Panchayati Raj system has played a significant role in the socio-economic development of rural areas and has helped to bridge the gap between the government and the people.
Strengthening the Vision of Gram Swaraj and Rajiv Gandhi’s Initiative:
Rahul Gandhi emphasized the need to strengthen the vision of Gram Swaraj and Rajiv Gandhi’s initiative, which aimed to empower local communities and promote self-sufficiency at the grassroots level. He stressed that the Panchayati Raj system has the potential to bring about a real change in the lives of the people, and urged everyone to work together to achieve this goal.
