I am PM because of Ambedkar: PM Narendra Modi


Mr Modi said Babasaheb enshrined the rights of weaker and marginalised sections of society in the Constitution and it was the responsibility of the government to realise them.

Apart from the health and wellness centres that will offer free checkups for diseases such as cancer, diabetes and hypertension, these centres are to be equipped with teleconferencing technology so that mid-level medical professionals posted at these centres can consult with doctors at the district headquarters. The communities, which were denied their rights, have woken up now.

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

PM Modi made the statement while inaugurating the Ayushman Bharat Yojana at Jangla village in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district.

"I am confident that these visits to Sweden and United Kingdom will be useful in enhancing our engagement with these countries", Modi said prior to his visit to Sweden.

"The first phase of Ayushman Bharat has been launched as Health & Wellness Centre (HWC)". You do not need to ruin your life.

Mentioning that Bijapur used to be regarded as a backward area once, he said that the district has earned a recognition across the country due to the pace of development and by courtesy of central schemes. He asked the parents and the guardians of the youths not to get their children be misled by the outsiders (giving the impression the leadership among Maoist cadres are from outside the Chhattisgarh state). If you read their names, surnames, you will understand who they are.

The PM inaugurated a new rail line and a passenger train between Gudum and Bhanupratapur, bringing north Bastar region on railways' map.

CM Singh and Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda, who were standing close to Modi, were also taken aback and joined the gathering in applauding him.
