Tendulkar adopts second village for transformation


The Economic Times:

Tendulkar has sanctioned over Rs 4 crore from his MPLAD fund for development of Donja. The amount will be spent on development of a new school building, a water Supply scheme that would provide potable water to each household, concrete roads and a sewage line attached to the same, a press release stated.

Donja is in Osmanabad, Maharashta.

We haven’t heard all that much recently about the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, where MPs ‘adopt’ a village and provide funds to improve conditions. Good to hear that Tendulkar, who is a Rajya Sabha MP and receives flak on his contribution in/to Parliament, moving on to a second village, after Puttamraju Kandriga (Andhra Pradesh).
