Bhopal: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that Ayushman card is the guarantee of good health for every Indian. In this card, free treatment of up to Rs 5 lakh is guaranteed to the poor. If your health deteriorates anywhere in India, go to the hospital and show this card, you will get up to 5 lakh rupees free of cost. Free treatment will be available. Illness is the biggest concern of the poor and this card is your guarantee of treatment. So far 5 crore poor people have been treated under this scheme. Had this card not been there, the poor would have had to sell their homes for treatment. Today, one crore people of Madhya Pradesh have been given Ayushman cards here. This card will work as an ATM of Rs 5 lakh for treatment in the pocket of the poor. While showing the card of Devendra Kumar Kaul, the beneficiary of Ayushman card, Prime Minister Modi told that free treatment of 5 lakhs is written on it. This is Modi’s guarantee of free treatment for every poor. No one in this country has ever given a guarantee of Rs 5 lakh treatment to the poor in a year, our government has done this.
Took help from Nobel laureate Japanese scientist in eradication of sickle cell anaemia: Prime Minister Modi said that I had gone on a visit to Japan, then I had a conversation with a Nobel laureate scientist there, who was doing research on sickle cell anaemia. I asked him for help. We have made eradication of sickle cell anemia the main mission of the nectar of independence. Our target is to make India free from this disease by the year 2047.
Prime Minister Modi said that the public should beware of those who give false guarantees. Identify the hidden flaw in their guarantee. The guarantee of free electricity is a trick to increase electricity prices, the guarantee of free travel is to destroy the transport system, the guarantee of increasing pension means that employees will not get their salary on time, the guarantee of cheap petrol is a sign of increasing taxes, increasing employment. The guarantee is a conspiracy to sabotage the industry.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today launched the National Sickle Cell Anemia Eradication Mission at Lalpur in Shahdol district of the state. On this occasion, he started distribution of more than one crore PVC Ayushman cards in the state. The Prime Minister distributed more than 3.5 crore digital Ayushman cards in the country by pressing the tab button.
