Modi launches Ayushman Bharat

PM Narendra Modi to roll out Aysuhman Bharat tomorrow

"This is welcome. The question Prime Minister, is, When, and How?" 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.

"The government is duty-bound to ensure school education to children and remuneration to agriculture produce", he said.

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.

He also saluted the security personnel who are playing an important role in the infrastructure development of Chhattisgarh.

Modi asserted that awakening among poor and backward sections about their rights and aspirations was due to Ambedkar and also attributed his own success to the Dalit icon and framer of the Constitution. He said the Government is working with a different approach on these 115 districts.

Bastar Inspector General said, "This is Naxal-prone area and Prime Minister's visit is a challenge for police".

He said that he has come to launch the Ayushman Bharat Yojana's first phase and the Lok Suraj campaign.

Ayushman Bharat, also known as the National Health Protection Scheme, has twin missions - first, creating a network of health and wellness centres to deliver comprehensive primary healthcare close to the community, and second, providing insurance cover to 40 per cent of India's population that is most deprived, for secondary and tertiary care, including for instance, hospitalisation costs. He said these Health and Wellness Centres would function like a family doctor for the poor.

The prime minister will also inaugurate a dialysis centre at Bijapur Hospital on the same day. The districts are Bijapur, Narayanpur, Bastar, Kanker, Kondagaon, Sukma and Dantewada. Referring to the Ujjwala scheme, Raman Singh said that this will benefit SC/ST women the most.
