Guwahati: Prime Minister Narendra Modi was overwhelmed by the revival of Assam government’s health and public works department.
In his inaugural address at the ‘Asom Mala’ program in Dhekiajuli of Sonitpur on Sunday, Narendra Modi expressed satisfaction over the work done in the last five years in these two departments.
In his speech, PM Modi addressed Assam Health, Education, and Finance Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, as “Himanta Bhai”.
PM Modi praised the work done in the health sector and said, “Five years ago, it was only a dream to have a good Hospital in the hinterland of Assam. A good hospital, good treatment means waiting for hours and hours and having a lot of problems. Repeatedly praying to God for no medical emergency became a daily occurrence for people in many parts of Assam. But today, I see that this problem is now moving towards a speedy solution. That difference can be easily seen and felt. And it’s only because of the tireless work of the government.”
PM Modi also added, “The present Central government has been working tirelessly for the development of Assam. Assam is also moving forward like other states of the country in the path of development. In the same way, Assam has made great strides in the construction of roads and bridges in the last few years.”
PM Modi also hopes that the Asom Mala project, which he inaugurated on Sunday, will provide a network of wide roads and communication systems to all the villages and modern cities of Assam.
