After unveiling several pro-poor programmes, including launch of "Ayushman Bharat" scheme in Maoist-affected Baster region of Chhattisgarh, the Prime Minister, who began and ended his speech with "Jai Bheema", vowed to transform 115 "aspirational districts" of the country into "ambitious districts" by adopting different strategies, including a "mass movement".

Under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, the government will open 1.5 lakh health and wellness centres by 2022, which will be equipped to provide medical treatment for diseases such as blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, and old age illnesses. His visit to Chhattisgarh coincides with the birth anniversary of Dalit icon Dr B R Ambedkar.

"We want the benefits of our schemes to reach the last person and that is why the Gram Suraj Abhiyan will be held from today to May 5".

The NISAU UK expressed a sense of great distress and horror over these crimes of a heinous nature and urged Modi to make an announcement on the issue when he addresses the diaspora at the Bharat Ki Baat, Sabke Saath event in London on Wednesday, during which he will address questions from around the world in a live global telecast. Raise your hands and say Jai Bheem after me. If Bijapur can see development in 100 days then why can't the other districts witness the same? I assure that government will do all it can to ensure this, said prime minister.

"Bijapur was labelled a backward district". "These three months have passed. They are not residents of your state, keep themselves safe but get your children killed", Modi said.
