During the programme, Phuniang provided details on various schemes, such as PM SVANidhi, PM Ujjwala Yojana, Ayushman Bharat-Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, PM Awas Yojana (Urban), and Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Urban) as well as administered the VBSY pledge to the gathering.
Beneficiaries of central government schemes shared their personal stories and experiences during the ‘Meri Kahani Meri Zubani’ event, while the VBSY van, mounted with an LED screen, played out the message of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and videos on the welfare schemes. Calendars and brochures were also distributed to the public.
On the same day, a VBSY rural campaign was also conducted at Asangma village under the Tuli block of Mokokchung district.
