New Delhi: India has set a target of eradicating tuberculosis (TB) by 2025 and 'Ni-kshay Mitra' has taken charge of this movement against the disease, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his monthly radio programme 'Mann ki Baat' on Sunday.
The Pradhan Mantri TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyaan (Ni-kshay Mitra Initiative) has been implemented by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.
"India has set a target of eradicating TB by 2025. Ni-kshay Mitra has taken charge of this movement against TB. Thousands of people are adopting TB patients in rural areas. This is the true strength of India. The youth is also contributing to achieving the target of eradicating TB by 2025," PM Modi said during the 102nd episode of 'Mann Ki Baat.'
Remembering Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, PM Modi said, "Along with the bravery of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, there is a lot to learn from his governance and his management skills. The works done by Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, especially regarding water management and the navy, increase the pride of Indian history even today."
"The forts built by him, even after so many centuries, are still standing proudly in the middle of the sea," he added. Praising the efforts of people reviving a river in UP, PM Modi said, "In the Hapur district of Uttar Pradesh, people have revived an extinct river. The river's source is also being developed as an Amrit Sarovar."
Elaborating on the theme of this year's International Day of Yoga, PM Modi said, "The theme for this year's International Day of Yoga is 'Yoga for Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam'. This expresses the spirit of Yoga that unites and takes us together."
"This time I will lead a yoga session for the first time at UN Headquarters on the 9th International Day of Yoga," added the Prime Minister.
The International Day of Yoga is celebrated on June 21.
Stating that the strength of disaster management that India has developed over the years has become an "example", Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hailed the people of Kutch for facing Cyclone Biparjoy with "full courage and preparedness."
Cyclone Biparjoy, which originated in the Arabian Sea and swept across the west coast of India, made landfall on Thursday night around 10 km north of the Jakhau Port in Kutch, Gujarat.
"The strength of disaster management that India has developed over the years is becoming an example today. Cyclone Biparjoy wreaked so much havoc in Kutch, but the people of Kutch faced it with full courage and preparedness," said PM Modi during the address. (ANI)
