# Be it Vindhyachal or Bundelkhand -despite having a lot of resources, these regions became regions of deficiencies. In spite of having several rivers, these regions came to be known as the most thirsty & drought-affected regions. So many people were forced to migrate from here: PM Modi

# If there is any region that was neglected for decades after independence, then it is this region that was neglected the most: PM Modi

In 70 yrs drinking water supply projects could be regulated only in 398 villages in Vindhya region. Today we’re here to take forward such projects in over 3000 villages of the region, says UP CM at foundation stone laying event for drinking water supply projects in Mirzapur, Sonbhadra
