PM Modi to release Balasaheb Vikhe Patil's autobiography today
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday will release the autobiography of former Union Minister Dr Balasaheb Vikhe Patil at 11 am via video conferencing. PM Modi will also rename the Pravara Rural Education Society as 'Loknete Dr Balasaheb Vikhe Patil Pravara Rural Education Society'.
Dr Patil served as Member of Lok Sabha for multiple terms. He died in 2016 at the age of 84. His autobiography, titled 'Deh Vechwa Karani,' means 'dedicating one's life for a noble cause.'
The autobiography is aptly named as he dedicated his entire life to the benefit of society through his path-breaking work in various fields, including agriculture and cooperatives.
Pravara Rural Education Society was established in 1964 at Loni in Ahmednagar district, with the aim to provide a world-class education to the rural masses and empower the girl child.
Society is currently serving with the core mission of educational, social, economical, cultural, physical and psychological development of students.
Earlier on Sunday, PM Modi had launched the physical distribution of property cards under the 'Survey of Villages and Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas' (SVAMITVA) scheme through video conferencing.
"The scheme is going to bring "historical change" in the villages of the country. Today, one lakh people have got ownership letters for their houses. Many congratulations to those who have downloaded their ownership card," the Prime Minister had said during the event.
The launch will enable around one lakh property holders to download their property cards through the SMS link delivered on their mobile phones, according to a statement by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO).
