Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday, inaugurated the first health centre under Ayushman Bharat Scheme in Jangala, Bijapur. He also inaugurated the first phase of the Bastar Internet scheme under which a 40,000-km-long network of fibre optics cable would be spread across the seven districts of the tribal region.


Addressing a public gathering in Bijapur, Prime Minister Modi claimed that after all the developmental projects launched in Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district, it will no longer be known as a backward district anymore.

He said, "If Bijapur can see development in 100 days then why can't the other districts witness the same? I came here to assure you that with all the development projects now Bijapur district will no longer be known as a backward district,"

"Chhattisgarh has witnessed rapid development since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has sworn in. There were only two medical colleges then, I am told that the state now has 10 medical colleges," Prime Minister Modi added.

Further assuring development in the state and country, Prime Minister Modi announced that Centre will support all aspirations.

"I have come here to tell you that your government at the Centre will support all your aspirations. If a person like me is the Prime Minister of this country then it is also due to BR Ambedkar's efforts. I am lucky to be here among you all on the occasion of birth anniversary of Baba Bhimrao Ambedkar," Prime Minister Modi stated.
