Wasim Rizvi urges PM Modi to enhance his security

Ayushman

As the nation celebrates the 127th birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar and remembers his contribution for the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the first phase of Ayushman Bharat health programme from Bijapur in Chhattisgarh.

The prime minister will also inaugurate a dialysis centre at Bijapur Hospital on the same day.

Under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, the government will open 1.5 lakh health and wellness centres by 2022, which will be equipped to provide medical treatment for diseases such as blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and old age illnesses. At the inauguration of the health and wellness centre, he will interact with Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) workers.

The Prime Minister Modi also inaugurated bank branches in seven villages and visited rural BPO centre developed under the India BPO promotion scheme.

This is the prime ministers fourth visit to Chhattisgarh, where Assembly elections are due later this year.


Explaining the significance of holding this event in Bijapur today, the Prime Minister said that Bijapur is one of the over 100 aspirational districts in the country, which have got left behind in the development journey.

Prime Minister Modi also laid foundation stones for roads worth Rs 1700 crore. He said the Government is working with a different approach on these 115 districts. "These centres will function like family doctors for people in villages", the PM said. Modi, who visited the Jangla health and wellness centre-which was earlier a community health centre- said the scheme aims to transform sub-centres and primary health care centres into health and wellness centres where facilities such as teleconsultation would be provided.

Ayushman Bharat-National Health Protection Mission (NHPM) dubbed as "Modicare", aims to benefit around 50 crore people (from about 10 crore families) by providing coverage from secondary and many tertiary hospitalizations.

An optical fiber cable network is being laid over an area of 40,000 square kilometres in Bijapur, Narayanpur, Bastar, Kanker, Kondagaon, Sukma, and Dantewada districts of Bastar division as part of the project. He was accompanied by CM Raman Singh.

The Prime Minister asserted that the initiatives and decisions taken by the Union Government indicate its commitment to the welfare of the poor and weaker sections of society.
