Kolkata, Aug 23 (UNI) President Pratibha Devisingh Patil today said pro-poor schemes must be implemented vigorously and their monitoring done regularly.
Addressing the bicentennial silver jubilee programme of the Asiatic Society here, the President said the task required the collective effort of the government, civil society organisations and the common people.
'' India is committed to inclusive growth where all sections of society, particularly the weaker and disadvantaged can derive benefit from economic growth, '' Mrs Patil observed.
She said contributing to social uplift and rendering service for the benefit of humanity were key to inclusive growth.
'' These concepts are not alien to our culture, rather they are an integral part of our cultural consciousness. Working for the welfare of others finds numerous references in our scriptures and literature, '' the President maintained.
She said the world was being treated as one family and hence it should be the collective endeavour of humanity to bring development and prosperity to the world.
