Patiala, December 9, 2023 (Yes Punjab News)
Union Health Minister Mansukh L. Mandaviya today visited Patiala’s Dakala to interact with beneficiaries of Central Government’s flagship ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’ campaign.
The union minister was accompanied by Patiala MP Preneet Kaur, BJP Punjab President Sunil Jakhar and the entire state leadership of Bharatiya Janata Party. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also interacted with beneficiaries of the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra (VBSY) across the country via video conferencing.
Addressing a huge gathering of beneficiaries of various central schemes, Mansukh Mandaviya said, “The Narendra Modi ji led government is completely committed to the welfare of every citizen of this country and with this Sankalp Yatra we are ensuring that the benefits of hundreds of public welfare schemes started by Shri Narendra Modi ji reach the ground level and people are able to avail their benefits at their doorsteps.”
He said, “Everyone can register for various welfare schemes being run by the central govt during this ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’. These are not only welfare schemes, these are Modi Ji’s guarantees and the honourable PM never fails to fulfill his guarantees.”
The union minister further said that, “This Yatra which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 15 from Jharkhand, has emerged as a transformative expedition fostering connections with citizens nationwide and has witnessed participation of over 1 crore citizens till now.”
While talking about the welfare schemes of Modi Government, Member Parliament from Patiala Preneet Kaur said, “The Narendra Modi ji led government is running many public welfare schemes providing much needed assistance to the citizens of our country, one of them being the Ayushman Bharat scheme, which has provided major relief to the common people of India, as now everyone can afford proper healthcare free of cost.”
Thanking the central government for this Vikas Yatra Preneet Kaur said, “I am extremely Grateful to the Shri Narendra Modi ji government for ensuring doorstep delivery of welfare schemes to every village, every town through this ‘Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra’.”
Taking on the Aam Aadmi Party government the Patiala MP said, “It’s saddening that the Current Aam Aadmi Party led Punjab Government doesn’t want this program to succeed and is trying to create blockades in it, which is very wrong because this program doesn’t care that the beneficiaries belong from which party, the only thing that matters is that the benifit of public welfare schemes reach the common person.
Therefore I also urge Bhagwant Mann that if he really is the Aam Aadmi CM then instead of creating problems in this ‘Viksit Bharat’ program he should ensure that the people of Punjab have easy access to this public campaign of the central government.”
Besides Union Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, MP Preneet Kaur, BJP President Sunil Jakhar, other prominent leaders included Manthri Srinivasulu, Jai Inder Kaur, Parminder Brar, Anil Sareen, Subash Sharma, Rajesh Rathore, District President Harmesh Goyal, Surinder Kherki among others.
