Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has lauded the role of 'gram parivartaks' in shaping the rural economy of the state.

Addressing the convocation ceremony of CM Rural Development Fellows in Mumbai, Mr Fadnavis said, financially empowering the 6 lakh villages will transform the nation.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister also released 'Katha Parivartanachi', a book containing stories that chronicle transformation of villages.

As many as 1,000 villages in Maharashtra were selected under the Village Social  Transformation Program, undertaken jointly by the state government and corporate houses for integrated development.

Mr Fadnavis said, the programme, which was started two years back, has been successful due to the efforts of gram parivartaks and people's participation.

He added that gram parivartaks have done the work of taking the government's schemes to the people on ground level.
