Many states are trying to overcome the virus. So that somehow life can be brought back on track. PM Narendra Modi inaugurated the Silver Jubilee Celebration on the completion of 25 years of the Rajiv Gandhi Health Sciences University of Karnataka on Monday. Due to Coronavirus, this program was conducted through video conferencing. PM Modi said, '25 years means this university is in its youth. This age is to think even bigger and improve. I am confident that the university will continue to touch new heights of excellence in times to come. In normal times, the celebration would have definitely been bigger. If it had not been a global pandemic, I would have loved to be with you all in Bengaluru to mark this special day."
In his statement, PM Narendra Modi said that "Behind this battle of India against Corona is the hard work of the medical community and our Corona warriors. In fact, the doctors and medical staff are soldiers, without the uniform of any soldier. At such a time, the world is looking at our doctors, nurses, medical staff and the scientific community with hope and gratitude. The world wants both 'care' and 'cure' from you. Viruses can be an invisible enemy. But our warriors, health workers are invincible. In the battle of invisible versus invincible, our health workers are sure to win."
Apart from this, PM Modi further said in his statement, "The country has seen rapid progress in the establishment of AIIMS. In the last five years, we have been able to add more than 30,000 seats in MBBS and 15,000 seats in post-graduation. During the last six years, we have given top priority to reforms in health and medical education in India. We are working on four pillars broadly". PM Modi said that Ayushman Bharat - India's largest healthcare plan is in the world. In less than 2 years, 1 crore people have benefited from this scheme. Women and residents of villages are among the major beneficiaries of this scheme. A nation like ours should have the proper medical infrastructure and medical education infrastructure. Work is going on to ensure a medical college or postgraduate medical institute in every district of the country.
