"In the Sankalp Patra, PM Narendra Modi has aimed for a 'Viksit Bharat' by 2047. We have mentioned all the sectors, keeping in view our long-term agendas, whether agriculture or allied, youth, women empowerment, employment generation, investment, education, health- it has reflected on all sectors", the chief minister said.

In the next tenure of PM Modi, we aim to connect those villages which are not yet connected by roads."
