He also highlighted the objectives of the programme and urged all the line departments to continue with their efforts to converge and interface with the people till the target to cover all deserving beneficiaries is met.
Later, he administered the “Hamara Viksit Sankalp Bharat Yatra” pledge to the gathering.
