The pass rate in most programs is over 90%. In the future, we will also have to be at the top in the implementation of the programs. Regular meetings will be held at the level of the Chief Minister regarding the progress made in achieving the objectives of the programs.
It is up to the departmental ministers to ensure the proper execution of the measures implemented in their department. Ministers should also be active on social media regarding ministerial schemes.

No less than 75 Amrit Sarovars are to be built in each district, in which the amount of CSR donations and resources are to be used.

More and more students should be associated with CNC in order to develop in them the spirit of patriotism and discipline. In addition, relevant departments should develop an action plan in coordination with each other to link physiotherapy and yoga.
