Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that India is on the way to becoming a developed country and this is only possible with everyone’s effort i.e “Sabka Prayas”. The Prime Minister was speaking at the inauguration of the Sri Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research in Chikkaballapur here in Karnataka.
“On several occasions, people ask how India will develop in such a short time. There are so many challenges, so much work, how will it be completed in such a short time? The answer to this question is: everyone’s effort. This is going to be possible with the joint efforts of every countryman,” PM Modi said.
“In the last nine years, efforts have been made to work very honestly, and very efficiently regarding health services in India. Many reforms related to medical education have been done in the country,” the Prime Minister added.
PM Modi said that the administration has prioritised the health and welfare of the poor and middle class in order to improve the nation’s healthcare system. Further, he said that Chikkaballapur has nurtured the mission of service to humanity through ensuring education and health to the people. “These accomplishments have been wonderful. Moreover, the medical college being inaugurated here, today, will further strengthen this great mission,” he said. There are more than 9,000 health and wellness centres in Karnataka, the Prime Minister added.
The PM also said: “Chikkaballapur is the birthplace of Sir M. Visvesvaraya, one of the architects of modern India. Just now, I had the privilege of paying floral tributes at the Samadhi of Sir Vishveshvaraya. I bow my head to this holy land.”
Earlier, the Prime Minister visited the museum in honour of Sir M. Visvesvaraya and paid respects at his tomb. Visvesvaraya is considered the architect of modern Mysuru. PM Modi was accompanied by Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
