JAMMU: Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh on Sunday said, ‘PM Vishwakarma’ scheme represents perfect blend of India’s civilisational ethos and traditional craftsmanship.
The scheme offers the option of earning livelihood while at the same time sustaining India’s age old Guru-Shishya Parampara, said the Minister.
Dr. Jitendra Singh was speaking here today during the launch of ‘PM Vishwakarma’ scheme by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Dr Jitendra said, PM Modi has introduced a culture of combining India’s traditional knowledge with modern technology and Chandrayaan is the most striking example of this.
Dr. Jitendra said, this is a historic day in the development journey of India when the exclusive asset of India, the traditional artisans and craftsmen are being brought into the mainstream with the launch of ‘PM Vishwakarma’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Dr. Jitendra said, the traditional artisans and craftsmen are as integral as anything in the society who have kept alive the centuries old traditions and crafts of India but were never taken care of since independence. It was only possible under PM Narendra Modi that this integral part of the society is supported and skilled now with the launch of ‘PM Vishwakarma’ scheme today.
