The team of officials from Nagaland led by Village Development Minister Pangnyu Phom, which visited Kerala to study the Kudumbashree activities, has invited the Kudumbashree team to Nagaland for guidance in implementing the State Rural Livelihood Mission (SRLM).
The invitation was extended when the delegation met Panchayat and Social Welfare Minister M K Muneer and Kudumbashree executive director K B Valsala Kumari here on Thursday.
The 11-member team said that the Kudumbashree, which is providing livelihood for thousands of women in villages, can be taken as a role model by other States. The State Rural Livelihood Mission is still in the infant stage in Nagaland, they said. They pointed out that there were no panchayat system in Nagaland but there are Village Councils and Village Development Boards.
To implement the Kerala-model in the rural Nagaland areas, the support of the Kudumbashrees is needed, they said. For the initial discussion in this regard, the visiting team invited Muneer and other officials to visit Nagaland and it was accepted.
