PM Modi lauds Ambedkar, launches Ayushman Bharat at Bijapur

Pm Modi

He said the government was working with a different approach for 115 backward districts, which were categorised as "aspirational districts" and "ambitious districts".

Addressing the gathering on the occasion of the launch of India's first wellness centre under Ayushman Bharat, the PM said that Bastar and Bijapur are blessed by the chants of Babasaheb's name.

PM Modi who began his speech in public rally recalling Bhim Rao Ambedkar acclaimed "Jai Bheem" and stated that if someone like him from the most backward community can become the prime minister the credit goes to Ambedkar who had immensely contributed to kindled hopes, expectations and aspirations among crores like me.

Prime Minister on Friday took a metro ride to 26, where he dedicated to the nation.

"I would like to ask the youth on the path of violence that the Constitution takes care of your rights". But at least think about those who are leading them.

The PM will launch the Ayushman Bharat scheme from a sub-health centre at Jangla and later inaugurate bank branches in seven villages, including Jangla, of Bijapur district, he said.

Chhattisgarh now boasts of over 11,583 VLEs who are working at the Gram Panchayat level across the 27 districts of the State.

He said over 100 districts in the country including Chattisgarh's Bijapur were backward even 70 years after the Independence.

A newly-laid railway line between Gudum and Bhanupratappur will be commissioned through video-conferencing, the official said. The scheme aims to provide footwear to Tendu leaves (tendupatta) collectors to facilitate their smooth movement in the forest area. The strong words from the Prime Minister also had immediate effect as the two BJP ministers from the state of Jammu and Kashmir resigned. During his tenure as Prime Minister, this was his fourth visit to Chhattisgarh and second visit to Bastar region. He said it was Modi's love and affection for the state that he was leaving no stone unturned for the development of the state.
