"I would like to ask the youth on the path of violence that the Constitution takes care of your rights".

PM Modi helps a tribal woman put on her slippers at the launch of Ayushman Bharat scheme at Jangla village in Bastar on Saturday.

The scheme, branded Ayushman Bharat and also known as Modicare, will create a primary-healthcare network and also cover annual costs of up to Rs 5 lakh a family for free treatment of serious illnesses. "There were only two medical colleges in Chhattisgarh, but now the figure has reached to 10", he said. Addressing the tribals, Modi said: "I have come to Bijapur with Taking inspiration from Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar, I have come to Bijapur to give the people and the administration here the confidence that the government at the Centre is yours, it supports your wishes and aspirations". Now, the poor will be able to check common diseases such as diabetes on a regular basis. He added that there will be electricity connection in every household in the district. "Around 2.5 lakh patients have benefited through it".


The PM's visit to the state coincides with the birth anniversary of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar.

This is also the Prime Minister's fourth visit to Chhattisgarh, where assembly elections are due later in the year.

Modi also inaugurated the Van Dhan Yojana, which aims at empowering tribal communities, besides dedicating the Bhanupratappur-Gudum railway line to the nation by flagging off a train between Dalli Rajhara and Bhanupratappur.

The prime minister will also inaugurate a dialysis centre at Bijapur Hospital on the same day. Another BJP Twitter explained that under PMGSY, more than 2700 KM roads will be built.
