Ayushman Bharat one of revolutionary steps of New India: Modi

New Delhi, Oct 1 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that Ayushman Bharat is one of the revolutionary steps of New India and not just because it is playing an important role in saving the life of an ordinary person, but it is also a symbol of the dedication and strength of 130 crore people of the country.
The Prime Minister, who was presiding over the valedictory function of Arogya Manthan here, said, 'The first year of Ayushman Bharat has been about resolution, dedication and mutual learning. We are running the world's largest health care scheme successfully in India due to our determination.'
On the occasion, Mr Modi said the access to medical facilities should be easily available to every poor and every citizen in the country.
He said there is a sense of dedication behind this success and this dedication belongs to every state and union territory of the country.
He added that it is a great achievement to awaken hope among the lakhs of poor people of the country to recover from the disease.
Mr Modi said that in the last one year, if any one person's land, house, jewelry or any other items are saved from mortgage or sale for medical treatment, then this is a huge success of Ayushman India.
The Prime Minister said in the last one year about 50,000 poor could avail the benefit under Pradhan Mantri - Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY) outside their district and state where they could get better facilities.
He added that Ayushman Bharat is a collective solution for the whole of India as well as a holistic solution for a healthy India.
He also said that this is an extension of the government's thinking under which 'we are working in totality instead of thinking in pieces to deal with India's problems and challenges. Ayushman Bharat ensures better treatment to patients in any part of the country'.
Mr Modi launched a new mobile application for the Ayushman Bharat, the world’s largest health insurance scheme aimed at securing the health of over 10.70 crore poor families in the country.
He interacted with select beneficiaries of Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri - Jan Arogya Yojana PM-JAY.
The Prime Minister visited the exhibition on PM-JAY which showcased the journey of the scheme over the past one year.
He also launched the ‘Ayushman Bharat Start-Up Grand Challenge’ and released a commemorative stamp on the occasion.
Arogya Manthan was a two-day event organised by the National Health Authority, to mark the completion of one year of Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY.
The purpose of the Arogya Manthan was to provide a platform to meet for all the important stakeholders of PM-JAY to meet and discuss the challenges faced in the implementation of the scheme in the past year and to forge new understanding and pathways to improving implementation.
