On the evening of Friday 13th September 2013 the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Parliamentary Board announced that Shri Narendra Modi would be the BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha Elections, which are scheduled for 2014.

BJP National President Shri Rajnath Singh said, “The BJP has a tradition to declare the PM candidate before Lok Sabha elections and I called for a Parliamentary Board meeting to discuss this. The Parliamentary Board has decided to project Narendra Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate. We have taken this decision seeing the mood of the nation and the views of the Karyakartas.” Shri Singh added that the Parliamentary Board congratulates Shri Modi and expressed confidence that the BJP will form the next Government. The BJP President added that all allies of the NDA have been taken on board in this decision.

BJP’s PM candidate

Speaking after the declaration, Shri Narendra Modi thanked the leadership and the Karyakartas of the party for reposing faith in him by giving him this very important responsibility. He said, “For several years as a Karyakarta I have undertaken several tasks and all the strength that I have got has gone in service of the nation. The Party has given a big task to me, someone who came from a small family. The Party has been built by the hardwork of Atal ji and Advani ji and the blessings of the Karyakartas will give us success.” Shri Modi added, “I bow to the Karyakartas of the Party and I assure that I will leave no stone unturned in working for a BJP victory in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. I seek the blessings of the people in our efforts to free our nation of the turbulent times we are going through.” Shri Modi thanked the NDA allies for their blessings and also thanked the friends in the media. Shri Modi affirmed that in 2014 the country will fight corruption and price rise and support development and Suraj.

Shri Narendra Modi has devoted his entire life in service of the people. He made a mark for himself as an organisation man, who played a major role in making the BJP a force to reckon with in Gujarat during the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1995 he went to New Delhi and was made National Secretary. During this period he was given the responsibility of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. In 1998 he was appointed the General Secretary (Organisation) and on 7th October 2001 he took over as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, a post he continues to hold till date. Shri Modi is the longest serving Chief Minister of Gujarat and led the BJP to victory in 2002, 2007 and 2012 Assembly Elections.

PM-CARES Fund to procurement 1,50,000 units of Oxycare System at a cost of Rs 322.5 Crore.
Comprehensive system developed by DRDO to regulate oxygen being administrated to patients based on the sensed values of their SpO2 levels.
DRDO has transferred the technology to multiple industries in India who will be producing the Oxycare Systems for use all across India.
Oxycare system reduces the work load and exposure of healthcare providers by eliminating the need of routine measurement and manual adjustments of Oxygen flow

PM-CARES Fund has accorded sanction for procurement of 1,50,000 units of Oxycare System at a cost of Rs 322.5 Crore. It is a comprehensive system developed by DRDO to regulate oxygen being administrated to patients based on the sensed values of their SpO2 levels.

The system has been developed in two Configurations. The basic version consists of a 10 litre Oxygen cylinder, a Pressure Regulator cum Flow Controller, a Humidifier and a Nasal Cannula. The Oxygen flow is regulated manually based on the SpO2 readings. The intelligent configuration includes a system for automatic regulation of Oxygen through a Low Pressure Regulator, Electronic Control System and an SpO2 Probe in addition to the basic version.

SpO2 Based Oxygen Control System optimises consumption of oxygen based on the SpO2 level of the patient and effectively increases the endurance of portable Oxygen cylinder. The threshold SpO2 value for initiating flow from the system can be adjusted by the health staff and the SpO2 levels are continuously monitored and displayed by the system. It reduces the work load and exposure of healthcare providers by eliminating the need of routine measurement and manual adjustments of Oxygen flow, thereby facilitating tele-consultation also. The automatic system also provides suitable audio warning for various failure scenarios including low SpO2 values and probe disconnections. These Oxycare systems can be used at Homes, Quarantine Centres, COVID Care Centres and Hospitals.

In addition, Non-Rebreather Masks (NRM) are integrated with the Oxycare Systems for efficient use of oxygen which results in saving of Oxygen by 30-40%.

DRDO has transferred the technology to multiple industries in India who will be producing the Oxycare Systems for use all across India.

The current medical protocol recommends oxygen therapy for all severe and critical Covid-19 patients. Given the current status of oxygen generation, transport and storage, oxygen cylinders have proved to be effective. Considering the present COVID pandemic situation with large number of individuals requiring oxygen therapy, sourcing only one type of system may not be practical, as all the manufacturing plants making the basic building blocks of the system are already running at their maximum capacity.  A mix and match of the system would prove to be a useful arrangement in the given situation. While the capacity of existing domestic manufacturers of carbon-manganese steel cylinders is very limited, as an alternative, DRDO has suggested light material portable cylinders which can easily act as substitutes for normal oxygen cylinders.
