Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with the chief ministers and deputy CMs of BJP-ruled states and shared good governance initiatives from their respective states.

The campaign will be inaugurated by Union minister of state for personnel Jitendra Singh on Monday.

“The good governance week will start from Monday. A series of programmes are planned to highlight various good governance initiatives taken by the Centre during the week. The main theme of the campaign is to take good governance to the rural areas,” the minister said.

Notably, December 25 is celebrated as ‘Good Governance Day’ to mark the birth anniversary of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

This year’s ‘Good Governance week’ would symbolize the strides made by India in promoting citizen centric governance and improving service delivery in consonance with Azadi ka Amrut Mahotsav celebrations to commemorate 75 years of progressive India.
