SALIENT POINTS OF THE SPEECH OF THE BJP NATIONAL PRESIDENT SHRI JAGAT PRAKASH NADDA JI GIVEN TODAY IN AIIMS IN BILASPUR IN HIMACHAL PRADESH WHILE ADDRESSING THE COVID WARRIORS FELICITATION CEREMONY
In the 70 years post Independence in India the amount of work done in the field of healthcare and medical paraphernalia no government had done so much work as done by the Narendra Modi Government, and our Honourable Prime Minister has taken forward the work started by our beloved leader and former Prime Minister Honourable Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji. India’s healthcare system has transformed under the Bharatiya Janata Party government.
We had to wait for 60 years to see AIIMS coming up in Bilaspur. No Indian had dreamt of seeing AIIMS outside Delhi. It were under Honourable Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now under Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji that AIIMS are coming up across the country and healthcare system has got a major boost.
Under the government of our beloved leader Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji 6 AIIMS were opened in the country, and now under Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji 15 AIIMS have come up in the last 7 years. This is the true changing face of India.
It was in 1960 that AIIMS had come up in Delhi and during the same time PGI came up in Chandigarh. We all used to stand in queues outside AIIMS in Delhi and PGI in Chandigarh. None of our leaders ever thought that AIIMS should also come in Himachal Pradesh and other states. Our leaders had no political will or vision. But changes came in BJP governments first under our beloved leader Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee and now under our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji.
Unde our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji the Union Health Ministry is doing excellent work, while our doctors, nurses and other medical and support staff are working round the clock and serving the people. We all have deep regards and affection for all of them.
Be it the field of education, health care, connectivity or human development, in all spheres Himachal Pradesh is moving fast ahead. For this I congratulate Chief Minister Shri Jairam Thakur and his entire government for doing such wonderful work in Himachal Pradesh.
It is the work culture of the Bharatiya Janata Party ruled states that in its tenure a project starts and is also completed. In previous governments of the Opposition parties we have seen projects delayed by as long as 40 years. Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji had laid the foundation stone of AIIMS in Bilaspur in the state which is now ready to be dedicated to the people of Himachal Pradesh.
The people of Himachal Pradesh have also realised the impact of electing a right government and a right leader. While there is no work for the party and the leaders on the other side, while our Bharatiya Janata Party government has readied AIIMS in the state. Did Bilaspur got such a valuable gift from previous Congress party government? Did Himachal Pradesh got such a big representation at the Centre?
Did the people of Himachal Pradesh ever believed that a satellite centre of PGI will come up in the state, which is currently being built in the state.
Had there been some other government at the Centre than the Narendra Modi Government, what would have been the impact of the Corona pandemic on our country, it is very scary to imagine.
Himachal Pradesh has already achieved 100 % first dose of Corona vaccination, and the work on the second dose is going on fast and will be completed very soon. For this I would like to thank and congratulate Chief Minister Shri Jairam Thakur, his entire government and the health workers for this excellent work.
It used to take decades for vaccines to reach India. India used to be last in carrying out vaccination drives. But under the leadership of our Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji India within nine months developed two Made In India vaccines, which is a remarkable achievement for our scientists and doctors
So far over 127 crore vaccine doses have been administered in the country and very soon we will cross 150 crore vaccinations.
India is currently supplying Corona vaccines to around 50 countries under the friendship pacts. The difference is very clear that today under the leadership of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji India is not a vaccine importer but a vaccine exporter.
The Coldam project which was stuck for several years, it was completed under the Narendra Modi Government. Similarly Atal Tunnel named after our beloved leader Honourable Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji was also completed under the guidance of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji.
Since Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji took over it has changed the fate and destiny of not just Himachal Pradesh but of the entire country. I appeal to all to form an awakened society and continue striving for the betterment of the society, the state and the country. Always support and bless those who work for the development, progress and growth of the state and the country.
