GUWAHATI: “Assam gets the gifts of Asom Mala and two medical colleges in Biswanath and Charaideo today. I am so glad today,” said prime minister Narendra Modi at Dhekiajuli in the Sonitpur district of Assam.
PM Modi on Sunday laid the foundation stone of two hospitals and launch ‘Asom Mala’, a programme for state highways and major district roads.
“Dhekiajuli is a historic land and a symbol of valour and pride. In 1942, Assam’s freedom fighters laid their lives to protect the honour of India’s pride. I bow down in their reverence. My heart is filled with Asamiya Pride,” he said.
“I was delighted to see the beauty with which Dhekiajuli was decorated last evening by lighting Diyas, and I posted a Tweet also on the same. I salute you for that,” the prime minister added.
Till 5 years ago, getting good medical care was an onerous task. From 1947 to 2016, Assam only had 6 Medical Colleges; in last 5 years alone, we’ve added 6 more medical colleges: PM Sri @narendramodi#DhekiajuliWelcomesModi pic.twitter.com/8V4akVfo5F
