Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that maximum efforts should be made to ensure that all government services and benefits reach the most marginalised people in the country, be it the tribespeople living in the remotest corners or the Pasmanda Muslims who have remained backward.

Mr. Modi was speaking on the importance of “reaching the last-mile” and “good governance” while addressing the inaugural session of a post-Budget webinar. He talked about the launch of the Aspirational Block Programme, which will keep with the government’s philosophy of focusing on last-mile delivery. The programme will focus on building best practices in delivery of government services at the block level.

The webinar laid a special focus on key policies announced for tribal communities in the Budget.

“If you remember, there was a time when it took decades for vaccines to reach far-flung areas,” he said, adding it was his government that brought Mission Indradhanush which improved delivery of vaccines.
