Agartala, 30th November 2023: Chief Minister Prof. (Dr.) Manik Saha on Thursday said that the state government is earnestly working with the goal of delivering the benefits of various schemes to the last man of society, aligning with the direction set by the Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Whether it’s Ayushman Bharat, Ujjwala Yojana, Jal Jeevan Mission, or Kisan Samman Nidhi, the Modi Ji-led Government has been diligently working to extend the benefits of various schemes to every individual in society. We have also been working in the same direction,” said Dr. Saha.
On the completion of 15 days of Vikshit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted directly with Sankalp Yatra beneficiaries from different parts of the country through video conferencing from New Delhi.
The event was also telecast live via video conferencing at Lakshmipur village in Mandwi block of the state. Chief Minister Prof. (Dr.) Manik Saha was present as a guest in the program at Lakshmipur Village.
On the completion of 15 days of the Vikshit Bharat Sankalp Yatra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated an increasing number of Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana kendra from 10,000 to 25,000 nationwide.
