In an attempt to boost cultural ties, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Uttar Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya under the ‘Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat’ programme.
Under the ‘Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat’ programme, the states will connect with each other to know more about the culture, heritage and traditions of each other. The programme aims at actively enhancing interaction between people of diverse cultures living in different states and union territories, with the objective of promoting greater mutual understanding among them.
Under the programme, each year a state and a union territory would be paired with another for interaction between their people. This exchange aims at promoting enhanced understanding and bonding between people.
