PM Modi in global health, education projects focus in Gujarat

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is on a three-day visit to Gujarat, will inaugurate the WHO Global Centre for Traditional Medicine at Jamnagar.

The Ministry of Ayush and the Government of Gujarat on April 18 organized a curtain-raiser press conference to discuss two pertinent developments in the field of traditional medicine in India, the ground-breaking event of the WHO Global Centre for Traditional Medicine (GCTM) and the convening of the Global Ayush Investment and Innovation Summit (GAIIS). Both the events are being held in Gujarat and will be graced by the presence of PM Modi, Prime Minister of Mauritius Pravind Jugnauth and the Director-General of WHO, Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, said the Ministry of Ayush in an official statement.

PM Modi also laid the foundation stone for multiple projects at Banas Dairy Sankul in Diyodar in Gujarat's Banaskantha district.

"In the last several years, the @banasdairy1969 has become a hub for empowering local communities, especially farmers and women. I am particularly proud of the Dairy's innovative zeal which is seen in their various products. Their continued focus on honey is also laudatory," PM Modi tweeted.

"I would like to applaud the people of Banaskantha for their hardwork and spirit of resilience. The manner in which this district has made a mark in agriculture is commendable. Farmers embraced new technologies, focused on water conservation and the results are for all to see," he added.

He also said that Vidya Samiksha Kendra in Gandhinagar can bring substantive changes in the field of education across the country while calling upon other states to study the initiative.

The Prime Minister said the children in the country by getting benefit from a modern system like Vidya Samiksha Kendra will ensure a bright future for India.

"It gives great pride to see the success and development of Gujarat in all walks of life. I experienced this yesterday at Vidya Samiksha Kendra in Gandhinagar. The use of such a huge technology for our government primary school is a wonder for the world. I have been associated with this sector before, but yesterday I specially went to Gandhinagar to see it," he said.
