"On Wednesday, the Prime Minister will hold interaction with the local people in a village on the outskirts of the capital and spend a night there," said a statement issued by his office.
"The Prime Minister decided to visit at least one village in a month to have firsthand experience about people`s problems at the grassroots and collect their feedback," PM`s aide, Bishwodeep Pandey, said.
During his stay, the PM will hold interaction with people from different occupations and listen to their grievances and complaints, and seek their feedback.
