Prime Minister Narendra Modi On his birthday, September 17, has a jam-packed itinerary, with talks on wildlife and the environment, women empowerment, skills and youth development, and next-generation infrastructure.
PM Modi will travel to Madhya Pradesh on Saturday morning, to release cheetahs in Kuno National Park. Then, at Karahal, Sheopur, he will take part in a self-help group sammelan with women SHG members and community resource people.
On the occasion of Vishwakarma Jayanti, the Prime Minister will also speak to students at the first-ever convocation of ITIs students. This initiative will enrol almost 40 lakh kids.
He will talk at the event and introduce the National Logistics Policy in the evening.
As part of his efforts to revive and diversify India’s wildlife and its habitat, the Prime Minister released wild cheetahs in Kuno National Park.
In India, the cheetah was deemed extinct in 1952. The cheetahs that would be released were imported under an MoU that was inked earlier this year and are from Namibia.
The first intercontinental large wild carnivore translocation operation in the world, Project Cheetah, is being used to introduce cheetahs to India.
Cheetahs will aid in the re-establishment of India’s open forest and grassland ecosystems.
This will benefit society as a whole by preserving biodiversity and improving ecosystem services including water security, carbon sequestration, and soil moisture conservation.
Through eco-development and ecotourism initiatives, this effort, in keeping with the prime minister’s dedication to environmental protection and wildlife conservation, will also improve the livelihood options for the local people.
The SHG Sammelan being held at Karahal, Sheopur, would include participation from the prime minister.
Numerous women Self Help Group (SHG) members and community resource people who are supported by the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihoods Mission will attend the event (DAY-NRLM).
The Prime Minister will also open four PM Kaushal Vikas Yojana skilling centres for Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTG) during the programme.
The goal of DAY-NRLM is to gradually organise rural low-income households into SHGs and offer them long-term support so they can diversify their sources of income, enhance their quality of life, and diversify their livelihoods.
Through awareness-raising and behavior-changing communication on problems including domestic abuse, women’s education and other gender-related challenges, nutrition, sanitation, and health, the Mission is also aiming to empower the women SHG members.
