Cong insulted Babasaheb Ambedkar, tried to erase his legacy: PM

Mr Modi said Babasaheb enshrined the rights of weaker and marginalised sections of society in the Constitution and it was the responsibility of the government to realise them. The communities, which were denied their rights, have woken up now.

He said the Centre has identified 115 most backward districts in the country to give a special focus on their development. Under the Ayushman Bharat scheme, he inaugurated first of the 1.5 lakh Health and Wellness Centres the government aims to set up by 2022 for comprehensive primary health care for preventive, promotive and curative care.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had flown to the town on Saturday and spent several hours in Chhattisgarh, listening to young girls who talked about a wide array of issues.

The prime minister added that such incidents shatter human emotions. You do not need to ruin your life. "See their names and surnames and you will come to know who they are".

PM Modi announced that he will not call the districts in Chhattisgarh as "backward". He asked the parents and the guardians of the youths not to get their children be misled by the outsiders (giving the impression the leadership among Maoist cadres are from outside the Chhattisgarh state). They hide safely in the jungles.

"If Bijapur district can witness development in just 100 days, why cannot others?" he wondered. "If all people of the district and local administration, public representatives make an effort together then something which has not be done in the past 70 years can be achieved in a short time", he emphasised.

Apart from inaugurating phase 1 of the Bastar Net programme, he also flagged off a train from the Bhanupratappur railway station in Kanker district via video conference.

The Prime Minister appreciated Chief Minister Raman Singh for the development works undertaken in the state over the last 14 years.
