The Central and Assam Government are working sincerely to give a better life to lakhs of families working in tea gardens. From free ration to the facilities available under the Har Ghar Jal Yojana, the Assam government is reaching the families in tea gardens rapidly, the Prime Minister informed.
The Prime Minister dwelled on the changed notion of people’s welfare. Today, scope of public welfare has been expanded. Earlier, only some subsidies were seen to be linked to public welfare. Projects of infrastructure, connectivity were not seen to be linked with welfare. Whereas, in the absence of connectivity, delivery of public services was very difficult. Now the country is moving ahead leaving behind the concepts of last century. In Assam, road, rail and air network expansion is visible, creating new opportunities for poor, youth, women, children, deprived and tribal communities. We are pushing the development of Assam and the country with the spirit of Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas and Sabka Prayas, the Prime Minister concluded.

Under the Phase 1 of the project, out of 10 hospitals, the construction of seven hospitals have been completed while three hospitals are at various level of construction. Phase 2 of the project will witness construction of seven new cancer hospitals.
