Ashwini Kumar Choubey took charge as the Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare at Nirman Bhawan. Thanking the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Choubey stated that he will carry on with his efforts to implement the mandates of Ayushman Bharat and will now further push for the benefits of Ayushman Bharat to reach the very last mile people; those people who still are unable to access the services provisioned for them through this revolutionary program of the Government.
Speaking on joining the office again, Choubey said that ‘sarve santu niramaya’ i.e. health for all is the policy mandate of the Government and he will make all efforts towards realising the same. He added that Hon’ble Prime Minister has visualised a New India and thus it is our responsibility that we take a pledge to work towards realising this vision of New India, a Healthy India.”
Choubey further mentioned that the environment affects our health and hence we should make effort to keep it clean and green, like planting trees and plants, like he did today. He also emphasised that opting for walking and cycling over vehicles for short distances will not only benefit the environment but also keep us healthy.
