Janaushadhi Pariyojana, Ayushman Bharat will create a revolution in India’s health sector: Piyush Goyal
New Delhi [India], March 7 (ANI): Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Sunday said that Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana (PMBJP) and Ayushman Bharat together will create a revolution in India’s health sector.
“50 crore people in India will receive Rs 5 lakh of health coverage under Ayushman Bharat Yojana. Ayushman Bharat along with PMBJP will create a revolution in India’s health sector,” Goyal told reporters here.
“PM Modi comes from a poor family. He understands how hard it is for poor people to deal with their diseases and how hard it is for them to buy medicines. Crores of families are in debts because of expensive medicines and treatment. I have seen PM Modi presenting many ideas in many meetings on interventions in the health sector,” he said.
“Today 7,500 Janaushadi Kendras have been opened as the country is about to enter into its 75th year of independence,” he added.
He also said that medicines in Janaushadi Kendras are equivalent in quality and efficacy to expensive branded drugs.
“These medicines are not substandard. They are effective like expensive medicines,” he said.
“Even after the Intellectual Property Right period of some companies end on these medicines, their prices will not be increased,” he added.
“PM Bharatiya Janaushadi Kendras will reach into villages of the country. We aim to open 10,000 such shops. These shops provide affordable medicines while also generating employment,” he further said.
Earlier, PM Modi dedicated to the nation the 7,500th Janaushadhi Kendra at Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS), Shillong on Sunday via video conferencing.
Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana’s initiative endeavours to provide quality medicines at an affordable price. The number of stores under the scheme has grown to 7499, with all districts of the country covered. Sales in the financial year 2020-21 (up to March 4, 2021) led to total savings of approximately Rs. 3600 crore for common citizens, as these medicines are cheaper by 50 per cent to 90 per cent than the corresponding market rates.
In order to create more awareness about Janaushadhi, an entire week from March 1-7 is being celebrated as ‘Janaushadhi Week’ across the nation, with the theme of ‘Jan Aushadhi – Seva bhi, Rozgar bhi’. The last day of the week- March 7 is being celebrated as ‘Janaushadhi Diwas’. (ANI)

In a tweet, Abdullah said that that it was the BJP who claimed that Kashmir was a paradise after the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019.
“But according to you, BJP wallas Kashmir has become paradise after August 2019 so what’s wrong with West Bengal becoming Kashmir? Anyway, Bengalis love Kashmir & visit us in large numbers so we forgive you your stupid, tasteless comment,” Abdullah tweeted.

Owaisi accuses YSRCP of buying candidates for municipal elections in Andhra Pradesh
Kurnool (Andhra Pradesh) [India], March 7 (ANI): AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi has accused the YSRCP of buying candidates of other parties for upcoming municipal elections in Andhra Pradesh.
Owaisi’s remarks came while he was campaigning for the upcoming municipal elections in Adoni town of Kurnool district.
“YSRCP is buying candidates of other parties for the municipal elections. YSRCP is misusing the police force to favour its own candidates,” he said.
Owaisi claimed that his party candidates cannot be bought.
“ITI college for minorities was built with the funds of the central government, but the state government is not starting the classes. The state government is also planning to demolish an Eidgah in Adoni town. This decision should be withdrawn,” he said.
“The state government is trying to convert the land of Jama Masjid into a parking lot. The construction of the Urdu college and school building that was started in 2019 should be completed as soon as possible. The YSRCP government is not implementing the 4 per cent reservation for Muslims in the state. In order to achieve all these things, AIMIM should come into power,” he added.
Owaisi claimed that AIMIM supported the YSRCP in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls and Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections.
The Hyderabad MP also took on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said, “BJP tried to spread hatred against Tablighi Jamaat for the spread of coronavirus but it was only AIMIM, which stood in support of Tablighi Jamaat.”
He claimed that he is not communal, but he is fighting for the Minorities, Dalits, and Adivasis of the country.
“AIMIM has openly opposed the CAA and tore down its copies in the Parliament… While all other secular parties are trying to suppress the voice of Muslims but AIMIM is raising voice for them,” the Member of Parliament said.
“During a discussion in Parliament on the Delhi violence, YSRCP and TDP did not speak up against the Central government. That’s why people should vote for AIMIM in municipal elections,” he said.
Owaisi lambasted BJP over a hike in the prices of diesel and petrol. He appealed to YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy not to bend to BJP.
“BJP and RSS are working silently in Andhra Pradesh. BJP and RSS spread communalism in the name of Hindutva. Hindutva forces should be stopped from entering Andhra Pradesh. YS Rajasekhar Reddy was a strong leader but Jagan is yielding to BJP. Now PM Narendra Modi is eying on Visakhapatnam Steel Plant and trying to privatise it. AIMIM is condemning the decision of privatizing the steel plant,” he said.
“Recently AIMIM won seven wards in Ahmedabad and we are confident that the same results will be repeated in municipal elections here as well,” he added.
Earlier, Owaisi informed that AIMIM will contest Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu as well. (ANI)
