PM Modi launches wellness project in Maoist area


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.

Bijapur (Chhattisgarh): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday appealed to the Maoist youth to shun their guns and join the mainstream for development in which the government would protect their rights.

"Ayushman Yojana is a game-changing health initiative, aimed at creating facilities to treat a host of communicable and non-communicable diseases, mainly in rural areas".

Pointing out that bamboo had earlier been placed in the category of trees making its cultivation impossible, the Prime Minister said that the relevant law has been amended enabling its cultivation and use.

It aims at covering 10 crore poor and vulnerable families and provide a cover of Rs 5 lakh per family per year for secondary and tertiary care hospitalisation.
