Stressing on inclusive growth, newly-appointed Rural Development Minister Narendra Tomar on July 6 said the overall development of the country depends on progress of its rural areas.
“I will take all steps to give concrete shape to the Prime Minister’s dream of inclusive development. The overall growth of the country depends on development of villages, and that this ministry has been working (on) for more than last two years and will continue to do so,” he said.
Replying to a question that he had been assigned a high profile ministry, Tomar said whatever role the party would assign to him, he will try to do justice to it as a simple party worker.
