Jammu Tawi, May 4:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s monthly interaction with the people, ‘Mann ki Baat’, has inspired a remote village boy to invent a hand-made JCB.
Surjeet Singh, a resident of Jungle Gali village in Pancheri tehsil of Udhampur district, has made a JCB machine with the help of iron pieces, a spring and wooden logs.
“Prime Minister’s ‘Mann ki Baat’ where he often speaks of ‘Make in India’ inspired me to invent a machine with which I can undertake ‘Swachhata Abhiyan’ in my village,” Surjeet said. “We are not financially sound. If ever helped by the Prime Minister, I will surely release my dream of making the real JCB into reality,” he asserted. On how he received the idea, he said while going to school, he used to closely monitor the working of the JCB machines engaged for various developmental works. “The engineers and operators of JCB helped me a lot. They answered all my queries due to which I realised my dream and invented this JCB,” said the budding innovator.
“I want to make a real JCB for the welfare of my people in the village as they suffer a lot during rainy season as road link gets blocked due to the landslide,” he said, adding that with the help of JCB, the road can be made through and help villagers to reach their destinations. “Not only for clearing the blocked roads, but the JCB will also help me to launch cleanliness drive in the village and keep it ‘Swachh’,” he said.
He maintained that there was no dearth of talent in the area but it required to be channelised and explored. Udhampur district falls in the constituency of Union Minister of State in the PMO Dr Jitendra Singh from where he is an elected Member of Parliament.
