Lucknow: Union Home Minister and Lucknow MP Rajnath Singh has adopted Beti village in the district under the Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Gram Yojna.
"The Union Home Minister has adopted Beti village in Sarojini Nagar (Assembly segment) under the model village scheme," Secretary of BJP's Uttar Pradesh unit Virendra Tiwari said today.
Though in Lucknow district, Beti village is not part of the Lucknow parliamentary constituency. It falls in the Mohanlalganj parliamentary constituency.
Under the scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, MPs of urban areas can adopt villages in other places as well.
Tiwari said there is an atmosphere of jubilation in the village following the news of its adoption by Singh.
Recently, during a visit to his parliamentary constituency Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, Narendra Modi had adopted Jayapur village.
