New Delhi, Aug 14 (ANI) : President Pratibha Patil said on Friday that empowering people lies at the core of governance and should be inclusive in all sections of society, particularly those that are weaker and vulnerable.
Patil was speaking at the foundation day of the Samaj Suvidha Sangam.
She, however, said that empowerment has to be inclusive in the widest possible sense, embracing all sections of society, to be effective.
"India has the necessary pre-requisites for becoming one of the leading nations in the world. Its people when well nourished and well educated will provide the hands and brains for the progress of the nation through their work and ideas," Patil said.
Patil said the mission convergence is focusing on improving deliverability under the schemes by reorganizing government processes, involving civil societies and community groups through Sangam, which is formed for this purpose.(ANI)
