Following Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement of MPs' model village scheme under which parliamentarians will adopt one village in their respective constituencies, Joshi had asked BJP's Kanpur unit to find a village for adoption.
We reviewed all villages in Kanpur but not a single village was deemed fit for adoption, Kanpur BJP district president Surendra Maithani said on Monday.

He said that for a village to be adopted it must lack the basic infrastructure, must have a population between three to five thousand people and a panchayat.
Joshi will now adopt a village in a neighbouring constituency and has issued orders regarding it, he said.
