New Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Sunday adopted four villages in Vadodara district in Gujarat as part of the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana for MPs.

"Today I adopted four villages-- Karnali, Pipaliya, Valida, Baglipura-- under the Karnali group panchayat of Dabhoi taluka in Vadodara district, as part of the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana," he said in his Facebook post.

The Yojana was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his Independence Day speech this year.

The scheme encourages MPs from both Houses to identify and develop one village from their constituency as a model village by 2016, and two more by 2019, covering over 2,500 villages of the 6 lakh villages country-wide.
