“The willingness of the state leadership provided the trust and confidence about the success of the digital project,” he emphasised.
Fadnavis said, “It is a dream come true. But partly. I want every village in Maharashtra to be digitally connected so that the world reaches the doorstep of each and every household in rural Maharashtra.”
The project, he said, held special significance as its objective was to accommodate growing aspirations of masses at the grassroots.
