Addressing a public meeting at Luhnu Ground of Bilaspur the PM said, “CM Jai Ram Thakur, BJP president JP Nadda and Anurag Thakur gave credit to me for these projects saying Modi Ji’s efforts led to completion of the projects, but if i tell you the truth all these projects including Atal Tunnel, Bulk Drug Park, Medical Device Park etc. could materialize with the efforts of all of you as people voted BJP to power at the Center and in the state.”  

He said, “It is a difference of vision; the Congress government laid foundation stones but forgot to complete the projects for years but the double engine government of BJP planned these and completed them with determination.”

Criticizing the previous Congress government the PM said , “Development for them meant developing cities and selected areas but our government is working to check the lopsided development and taken steps to create health, education and basic facilities; roads in tough hilly terrain were constructed under PMGSY by spending nearly Rs 50000 crore in Himachal.”

Talking about enhancement of health facilities, the PM said, “The AIIMS would help in providing specialized health facilities in the state and free treatment would be provided to people covered under Ayushman Bharat Yojna and HIM CARE, 1200 doctors are passing out every year from the state medical colleges and Medical Device Park and Bulk Drug Pharma Park would help in making life saving drugs, besides tapping opportunities  in medical tourism as the AIIMS would be green institute ”

The PM also praised social security schemes, hundred percent vaccinations against COVID etc of the state government and also talked about One Rank One Pension and other schemes.
