PM Narendra Modi to roll out Aysuhman Bharat tomorrow

PM Narendra Modi. Under Ayushman Bharat the govt has decided to transform 1.5 lakh sub health centres to health and wellness centres in a bid to provide comprehensive primary healthcare

PM Modi said the Ayushman Bharat scheme is not limited to providing a health service, but also invites inputs from society too.

The huge crowd that had congregated at Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's event was taken by surprise when Modi, who was slated to present a pair of slippers to a tribal woman, bent down and helped the bare-footed woman wear her gifted footwear.

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. The BPO centre is provided Internet by the Bastar internet scheme.

PM Modi announced that he will not call the districts in Chhattisgarh as "backward".

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. Addressing the tribals, Modi said: "I have come to Bijapur with Taking inspiration from Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, I have come to Bijapur to give the people and the administration here the confidence that the government at the Centre is yours, it supports your wishes and aspirations".

Under Ayushman Bharat, the government aims to set up 1.5 lakh wellness centres by 2022 that will leverage on comprehensive primary health care for preventive, promotive and curative care. He also inaugurated the first phase of the Bastar Internet scheme under which a 40,000-km-long network of fiber optics cable would be spread across the seven districts of the tribal region.

This is the first time that any prime minister has visited a remote, insurgency-affected region.
