"Panchayats are effective ways to fulfil aspirations of people in rural India. They are playing a vital role in India's transformation," he added.

He said his government, through all-round progress and grassroots-level participation, is working towards making 'Gram Uday Se Bharat Uday' (development of village will develop India) campaign a reality.

The campaign, launched by the Prime Minister in April last year, aims at generating nation-wide efforts to strengthen Panchayati Raj, promote rural development, and foster farmers' progress.
