New Delhi, October 31: Government has initiated on a novel issue under which every state will promote each state’s cultural wealth and language.  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that the 'Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat' scheme will soon be launched which will bridge the cultural gap in the country and enhance interaction between people living in different states.  
"I have formed a small committee which is preparing its modalities," he said addressing a gathering at Rajpath to mark the National Integration Day on the birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel

He said the proposed scheme will be implemented in cooperation with states

"The idea is that each year, one state should connect to any one state in India. Suppose Haryana as a state decides to connect with Tamil Nadu for year 2016 and then students in Haryana schools will be taught at least 100 sentences of Tamil language

"They will be taught one song in Tamil. There can be food festival, tours of people of Haryana to Tamil Nadu and vice versa. In year 2017, Haryana would connect to any other state and in 2018 another state.
