Many individuals lack awareness of how development projects are conceived and executed. This festival aims to bridge that gap, providing insights into the intricacies of good governance”, said the ICCR President.

“Through grand exhibitions, representatives from different states, civil society members and politicians will showcase their achievements and success stories. The event will feature Chief Ministers sharing their perspectives on good governance, fostering a dialogue on effective leadership,” Girgaonkar stated.

Providing further details he shared, “BJP President J.P. Nadda will inaugurate the event on February 9. We have invited the Minister of Health and family welfare, Mansukh Mandviya to share insights, the struggles while fighting with the COVID-19 pandemic and the success story. Maharashtra Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis will discuss farmers and farming,  while Hemanta Biswa Sarma will lead a conversation on development in Assam. Yogi Adityanath will conclude the event on February 10.”
