Key Points

  • Thanks to the dedication of Hemlata Singh, the village head of Gram Panchayat Sidhyawan with a population of approximately five thousand, the primary school underwent revitalization through the Kayakalp scheme, earning her the first prize.
  • It is worth mentioning that during the previous fiscal year, Sidhyawan, recognized as the top Gram Panchayat in the district, received an award of Rs 11 lakh from the Chief Minister. This fund was utilised to establish a cutting-edge library and initiate the installation of an R.O. plant.
  • Development works are also being carried out in the villages of Barabanki on the lines of the city and they are being developed as model villages. Consequently, one such village was chosen for the Chief Minister Panchayat Incentive Award, with CM Yogi commending the village head's efforts and rewarding them.
  • RCC and interlocking roads, CCTV cameras at intersections, a children's park creating a pleasant atmosphere for youngsters, an open gym, solar lights, water supply tanks for households, rejuvenated schools, and the enhanced cleanliness and aesthetic appeal of the village secretariat — all contribute to the comprehensive development in this region. Notably, the district's largest Amrit Sarovar, constructed at a cost of Rs. 1 crore 35 lakhs, stands as a testament to the significant developmental strides being made here.
