Explanation: Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, envisioned a comprehensive rural development strategy that included establishing a school, one cooperative, and one Panchayat for every village. This approach aimed to foster education, cooperative economic activities, and local governance.

Vikram Sarabhai, the father of the Indian space program, was a strong proponent of using television for educational and developmental purposes in rural areas. He believed in providing one television set for every village to enhance learning and information dissemination. Sarabhai also recognized the challenges of ensuring that the poor, in particular, benefit from community television, acknowledging that mere provision of technology might not suffice without addressing accessibility and usability issues.

Hence, the correct statements are that Nehru conceived of comprehensive rural development initiatives, Sarabhai advocated for the widespread use of television in villages, and he understood the specific needs of the poor in benefiting from such initiatives. Therefore, the correct answer is A, B, and C only.
