Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday congratulated the Goa government for becoming the first state to be ‘Har Ghar Jal-certified’, which means that every household in the state had a piped water connection. In a virtual address, he said that the Union Territories of Dadra Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu too had achieved the feat.
“Today, 10 crore rural households of the country have been connected to piped clean water facilities. This is a big success of the government’s campaign to deliver water to every household. This is a great example of sabka prayas (everyone’s efforts),” Modi said. He said that the Jal Jeevan Abhiyan was not just a government scheme, but a scheme run by the community, for the community. He said that many states will join Goa in achieving this mission soon.
The Har Ghar Jal Utsav under the Jal Jeevan Mission was held in Panaji and attended by Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant and Union minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. “Goa has been taking the lead in various missions of the country,” the Prime Minister said.
