Himachal, Kerala to work together on rural development projects

Anil sharma

Himachal Pradesh and Kerala have decided to strengthen implementation of their rural development projects by sharing information about feasible models and best practices. Ministers and senior government officials from the two Congress-ruled states met at Kozhikode, Kerala to discuss ongoing projects and ways to enhance cooperation.

Kerala’s Panchayats and Social Welfare Minister M.K Muneer gave details about local self governance in the state, community farming and the Kudumbashree programme to visiting Himachal Pradesh Rural Development and Panchayati Raj Minister Anil Sharma and his team of officials.

A larger ministerial team from Himachal will soon be in Kerala to study the progress made in the state in the area of social security. Likewise, a delegation from Kerala will visit the northern Indian state to assess development projects for tribal communities there and to see if the models can be replicated here.
