New Delhi: NITI Aayog’s 7th Governing Council meet was organised at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi on August 07. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot strongly presented the issues related to Rajasthan in the meeting chaired by PM Modi. During the meeting, CM Gehlot demanded that the Central Government should declare Eastern Rajasthan Canal Project (ERCP) as a national project along with hiking financial assistance of the Centre in various centrally sponsored schemes. He said that ERCP is an ambitious project of Rs 37,000 crore which will help augment irrigation facilities in an area of around 2 lakh hectares in 13 districts of Rajasthan. He said that Eastern Rajasthan is a leading area in the production of oilseeds. Besides this, by declaring it a national project, the problem of drinking water in these districts will also be resolved. CM Ashok Gehlot also expressed that there is an additional financial burden on the states due to the changes made in financial participation patterns in various centrally sponsored schemes.
