On 7th November 2014 Narendra Modi had adopted Jayapur village situated in the Varanasi Parliamentary constituency under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana. One year on this village which used to be devoid of basic/fundamental facilities, is ready to greet everyone in the form of a model village.
“In reality, through Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana Parliamentarians are not adopting villages, but it is the villages that have adopted/embraced the parliamentarians. We all have to direct our efforts to create model villages.”- PM Narendra Modi
