Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 5 November 2014 adopted Jayapur village in Varanasi under Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY). Varanasi is the Lok Sabha constituency of PM Narendra Modi.
Jayapur village is located 32 km from Varanasi city centre in the Rohaniya assembly segment. The village has a population of 4000. Of them, 2700 are voters. The village is dominated by Bhumihars and Patels.
PM is scheduled to visit the village on 7 November 2014. This will be Narendra Modi's first visit to his constituency after being sworn in as the prime minister.
The village was already adopted by the Rashtriya SwayamSevak Sangh (RSS) under its ideal village scheme in 2002.

Under the SAGY project, each MP is supposed to adopt a village and develop it as a model village.
