New Delhi, October 11: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that India lacks good governance in some states. He said that development is visible in states where there is good governance. 

Speaking at the birth centenary celebrations of Nanaji Deshmukh in New Delhi today, Modi expressed his government's firm commitment to bring urban facilities to villages by 2022, and said it was lack of good governance, not resources that was hampering development. 

"Good governance is a must for the development of villages and my government is trying to develop all the villages by 2022," the PM said.

'Just talking about development of villages or having plans for that was not enough. Initiatives have to be completed on time,' Modi said. "Villages have enough resources to develop but lack of good governance is hampering the effort," he said. 

Modi said integrating all the people of the country from both cities and villages in the development journey was a must. 

Modi said that strength of a democracy cannot be restricted to how many people vote. "Yes, that is important but the real essence of a democracy is Jan Bhagidari and integrating people in the development journey of cities, villages. Regular Samvad with governments is required," he said. 

Modi said that efforts have to be comprehensive and 'outcome driven' not 'output driven'. Initiatives have to be completed on time and fruits of development must reach the intended beneficiaries, said Modi. 

Pitching for rural development, he said that facilities that are associated with cities must also be made available to our villages.
