Sachin Tendulkar adopts another village for transformation
14 February 2017 Current Affairs: Indian cricket icon and Rajya Sabha MP Sachin Tendulkar is now set to adopt Donja in Osmanabad (Maharashtra) under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna. 

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 .

Five special village level meetings have been held since the village was adopted by Tendulkar, under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana with participation of women from the village. 

The initial planning has already been completed and the issuing of tenders for the various works is expected to commence after the Zilla Parishad elections in the region. 

Tendulkar had announced Donja as his second adopted village late last year after successfully completing the first phase of development in Puttamraju Kandriga in Nellore .

Five special village level meetings have been held at Donja where women have also made suggestions to the district officials to plan the roadmap for the transformation. 

Tendulkar has emphasised on addressing the issue of potable water since the entire region of Osmanabad has been facing a drought over the last couple of years. 

The school building which is over 70 years old will also be replaced with a new one. 

Anand Rayate (IAS), Chief Executive Officer of Osmanabad Zilha Parishad, has led the execution of various works in Donja.
