The Prime Minister recalled the time when all key development programs were carried out in New Delhi alone and highlighted that the present government changed the trend and took the Government of India to every corner of the nation.

Today’s organisation in Rajkot is a proof of this belief”, PM Modi said, underlining that the dedication and foundation stone laying ceremony is taking place in multiple locations in the country as it takes forward a new tradition.

He also conveyed his best wishes to citizens of all cities where AIIMS is being inaugurated today.

“Today marks a historic occasion not just for Rajkot but the entire nation”, the Prime Minister Modi said, highlighting that Rajkot today presents a glimpse of the desired levels of health facilities in Viksit Bharat. He pointed out that the nation had only one AIIMS for 50 years of independence, that too in Delhi.

He added that even though only seven AIIMS were commissioned during the seven decades of independence, some of them couldn’t be completed. “In the last 10 days, the nation has witnessed the foundation stone laying and inauguration of seven new AIIMS”, the Prime Minister remarked, highlighting that the present government has accomplished things at a faster pace than what was done in the last 70 years, thereby taking the country on the path of development.

Reiterating the promise of ‘Modi ki Guarantee meaning the guarantee of fulfilment of guarantee’ the Prime Minister said that the foundation stone for  Rajkot AIIMS was laid by him 3 years ago and today that guarantee was fulfilled. Similarly, a guarantee of an AIIMS was given to Punjab and the foundation stone as well as inauguration was done by PM Modi.

The same cycle has taken place for Raebareli, Mangalgiri, Kalyani, and Rewari AIIMS. In the last 10 years, 10 new AIIMS have been sanctioned in different states. “Modi ki guarantee begins where expectations from others end”, said PM Modi.

Under the Ujjwala Yojna, the poor have saved more than Rs 70,000 crores, citizens have saved Rs 4,000 every month due to low cost of mobile data and taxpayers have saved about Rs 2.5 lakh crores due to tax-related reforms.

The Prime Minister also elaborated on the PM Suryaghar Scheme that will bring the electricity bill to zero and will create income for the families. Beneficiaries will get 300 units of free electricity and the remaining power will be purchased by the government. He also mentioned large wind energy and solar projects such as two plants in Kutch for which foundation stones were laid today.

The Prime Minister underlined that the mission of Viksit Bharat gets stronger when the citizens of India get empowered. “When Modi guarantees to make India the world’s third largest economic superpower, the goal is health for all and prosperity for all”, the Prime Minister concluded.

Speaking on the occasion, the Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Ayush, Sarbananda Sonowal said, “Today is a historic day for the people of the country. Since Narendra Modi ji gave the motto of ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’ to take 140 crores Bharatiyas to move forward towards an Atmanirbhar Bharat.

Modi Ki Guarantee fulfilled delivered with welfare initiatives. Under the Pradhan Mantri Swastha Suraksha Yojana, as many as 23 AIIMS are established across the country. This is one of the biggest realisations for the people of the country since independence.

With many more such health initiatives, the healthcare delivery system in the country has been emboldened to provide the people of the country with a golden opportunity to live an enriched life with dignity and honour. In the ensuing days, I believe that AIIMS, Kalyani will become a strong centre of medical service, in line with Modiji’s vision of Heal in India, Healed by India. The institution will also spur medical tourism with a strong contender to the prospect of Medical Value Tourism in this region.”

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually inaugurated two Ayush institutes — the ‘Central Research Institute of Yoga & Naturopathy’(CRIYN) at Jhajjar, Haryana, and the National Institute of Naturopathy (NIN) titled ‘NISARG GRAM’ in Pune, Maharashtra.

On the inauguration of Ayush institutions, the Ayush Minister, Sarbananda Sonowal said, “The Prime Minister of India has also inaugurated two major initiatives of Ayush system of medicine in the country. Together with the contemporary medical service, the Ayush system of medicine has received a tremendous boost today.

This is going to provide a wide array of patient care solutions to people.
