Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha on Tuesday inaugurated the newly built Maternal and Child Health wing at Gomati District Hospital here in Udaipur subdivision and vowed to ensure quality health care services in the state with active participation of doctors and nurses.

Addressing the gathering in the inauguration programme, Chief Minister Dr Saha said, “Moving in line with the Modi-led government at the Centre the government in Tripura is working to ensure 100 per cent Ayushman Bharat insurance coverage for all sections of people of the state.”

“The Ayushman Bharat health insurance coverage has received a massive response from all sections of people across the country as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given top most priority in the country’s health sector,” he said, adding that the Tripura government is also working to build a medical hub in the state.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Dr Saha, who also holds the health portfolio on Tuesday expressed his concern over the rising drug addiction in the state and called for collective effort in ending the drug menace. He urged the parents to keep a close watch on their children.

He castigated the then Left front government and alleged that Ganja cultivation was mushroomed across the state during the time of Left regime and people came to know about this only after the change of regime after 35 years, where seizure rate has increased.

“Tripura is the second highest after Assam in the Northeast when it comes to seizure and destruction of drugs,” he said.
