PM Modi lauds Ambedkar, launches Ayushman Bharat at Bijapur

Various forces trying to divide nation for political gains, says Venkaiah Naidu

It is the duty of the government to take care of your rights. "The government is committed to protect your rights", he said. Earlier, he launched India's first wellness centre under Ayushman Bharat in Chhattisagrh.

The prime minister was in Bijapur to inaugurate a health and wellness centre at the primary level, the first of 1.5 lakh such proposed centres at the village level across the country under the Ayushmaan Bharat scheme.

Modi told the gathering that people behind the violent activities were from outside the state and it was they who were responsible for the death of local youths.

The scheme, also known as National Health Protection Mission, provides insurance cover worth Rs 5 lakh per family per year for 10 crore poor and vulnerable families or approximately 50 crore beneficiaries.

Ambedkar's birth anniversary will be observed on April 14 (Saturday).

Noting that the focus has for always been on insurance, the government believes the Ayushman Bharat scheme will help people look at comprehensive, affordable, preventive and primary care.

The government aims to develop these centres by 2022. During his tenure as Prime Minister, this was his fourth visit to Chhattisgarh and second visit to Bastar region. I want to say to their mothers and fathers, your daughters and sons have walked down this path. "If a person from a backward society like me can become the Prime Minister, it is because of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar's contribution", he said.

"Bijapur was labelled a backward district".

"If Bijapur district can witness development in just 100 days, why cannot others?" he wondered. "These three months have passed". "If the district administration, public representatives and the people join hands in a mass movement, unprecedented results can be achieved".

He said the Centre has identified 115 most backward districts in the country to give a special focus on their development. This is an insult to their sacrifice, Modi said. Under the scheme, Van Vikas Kendras will be set up to ensure better marketing and value addition to forest produce.
