CM inaugurates national homeopathy conference in Gandhinagar CM asks homeopaths to create an atmosphere of trust among people for the homeopathic treatment

Inaugurating the national homeopathy conference in Gandhinagar today Chief Minister Narendra Modi called upon homeopaths to create an atmosphere of trust among people for the homeopathic treatment.

Even as the homeopathic medicines are affordable and free from side effects, homeopaths should create awareness regarding it among the people. If the practitioners of homeopathy themselves lack the faith in homeopathy, people can not have trust on it. Success stories of homeopathy should properly be put before the people, he suggested.

There should not be a question of conflict between allopathy, ayurveda and homeopathy. All the three systems of treatment have some best things in them, he said.

Chief Minister said that homeopathic medicines prove very effective in the case of teething in children. It is seen that the irritating teething process makes children extremely weak and malnourished. It would be a great service if the homeopathy can be used for keeping strong the immune system of a child during teething process and thus preventing children from malnutrition. Regarding this, he appealed homeopathy association to launch a drive for curbing malnutrition.

The state government has made available Narmada’s potable water to the people and has also taken measures for making available the unpolluted air and food. This has checked many diseases from spreading, he said.

Mr. Modi said the society has a pressing need for adequate number of doctors. Considering this, the state government has increased the medical and engineering seats by five-fold with a view to create quality human resource.

On the occasion, the homeopaths donated a cheque of Rs.11,11,000 for the Chief Minister’s Kanya Kelavani Nidhi.

In his welcome address, Dr. Mohansinh Rajput, State President of the homeopathy council, gave details of the council’s activities. Chairman of Gopalak Nigam Dr. Sanjay Desai, Council Registrar Mr. Upadhyay and homeopaths across the State were present on the occasion.

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation: PM to inaugurate India’s longest bridge
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure
Dhola-Sadia Bridge to give a major boost to overall economic development in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh

Road connectivity in the North-East will see a major transformation when Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurates the country’s longest river bridge –the Dhola- Sadiya Bridge in Assam tomorrow. This new, three lane, 9.15 kilometre bridge has been built over river Lohit, a tributary of the Brahmaputra, linking Dhola in Assam to Sadiya in Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge will fill a huge connectivity gap that has existed in the region. Till now, the only means to cross the Brahmaputra at this location has been by ferry only in day-time and even this is not possible during floods. The last bridge over the Brahmaputra was the Kalia Bhomora Bridge at Tejpur. This will however change from tomorrow with the Dhola-Sadiya bridge ensuring 24X7 connectivity between upper Assam and Eastern part of Arunachal Pradesh.

The bridge will also reduce the distance from Rupai on NH- 37 in Assam to Meka/Roing on NH-52 in Arunachal Pradesh by 165 KM. The travel time between the two places will come down from the current six hours to just one hour – a total five hour reduction. This will result in saving of petrol and diesel worth Rs 10 Lakh per day.

The Dhola-Sadiya bridge promises to usher in prosperity in the North-East. It will provide efficient road connectivity to remote and backward areas which have poor road infrastructure. This bridge will also give a major boost to overall economic development of the areas north of Brahmaputra in upper Assam and Arunachal Pradesh. It will also cater to the strategic requirements of the country in the border areas of Arunachal Pradesh, besides facilitating numerous hydro power projects coming up in the state , as it is the most sought after route for various power project developers.

The total length of the Dhola-Sadiya Bridge project, including the approach roads on each side, is 28.50 km. The length of the bridge itself is 9.15 Km. It has been constructed on BOT Annuity basis at a total cost of Rs 2,056 crore, as part of the Arunachal Package of Roads and Highways under the Ministry’s SPECIAL ACCELERATED ROAD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME for NORTH EAST (SARDP-NE). The objective was to bring the people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh closer to each other.
