Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated the National Ayurveda Summit 2014 in Gandhinagar, on the morning of 25th February, 2014. The Summit is being organized by the Health and Family Welfare Department, Government of Gujarat.

Addressing a large gathering of Ayurveda practitioners, representing the 26 states of India, Shri Modi spoke of how the untapped potential of Ayurveda had significant scope in the future as the concept of holistic healthcare was increasingly being adopted by people across the globe. He stated that along with giving emphasis to the practitioners, an equal focus must be laid on the Ayurveda medicine manufacturers.

Speaking on promoting Ayurveda through better application of technology, Shri Modi highlighted how branding and packaging of the vast base of Ayurvedic medicines, and the extensive knowledge of Ayurveda, would escalate their demand across the globe and thereby increase our exports. “We have lot of talent but we need to present it to the world in the most modern manner. We need to present our technology to the world in the language in which they understand. The Hathi Commission was called for improving the packaging for Ayurveda. If China is exporting it, it means there is a market. Why cannot our herbal medicines take over the world market? How can we take our Ayurveda to the world,” said Shri Modi. He also suggested other ways of promotion, including digitalisation of ancient manuscripts.

Shri Modi also put forth many ways to promote the use of Ayurveda, some of which included tapping the countries that believe in traditional medicine and engaging them in discussions and affiliating our Ayurvedic colleges with foreign colleges. He stressed that by taking such initiatives at the global level, other countries could be brought under the umbrella of Ayurveda and a corpus fund could be created and used for intensive research in this field. The increased emphasis laid by the State government, on promoting Ayurveda, was clearly reflected in Shri Modi’s statement of the budget for the same rising from Rs. 36 crores few years back to Rs. 325 crore in the current plan.

Urging the audience to take effective steps at creating a ‘Swastha Bharat’, Shri Modi called for the need to raise awareness on Intellectual Property Rights, stating that patenting was the need-of-the-hour for Ayurveda. “We are also lagging behind in one thing and that is patent. Just saying our things are best will not do. We need greater awareness in IPR and patents especially vis-a-vis Ayurveda,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi spoke of the vast scope entailed in the practise of Ayurveda and emphasized on the need to understand and value our rich Ayurvedic legacy, instead of doubting its prevalence and effectiveness. “There have been attempts to forget the nation's glorious culture. Sadly, sometimes we begin suspecting ourselves also,” said Shri Modi.

He highlighted how the prevalence and preference for Ayurveda will increase only if its practitioners have trust in its effectiveness and only if the patient has enough patience to follow it. “The doctors of Ayurveda must have complete faith in Ayurveda. Also, the patient needs to have patience. If that does not happen, then the patient and Ayurveda cannot mix,” said Shri Modi. He also put forth the example of Mahatma Gandhi’s immense faith in our culture and urged the audience to have faith in the efficacy of Ayurveda. He said, “First and foremost we need to have faith in our traditions. Many times, people wondered about Gandhiji's attire etc. but he was never affected. He engaged with the world on his own terms.”

Asserting that the problems of ‘hurry, worry and curry’ are the main cause of concern for humankind, Shri Modi called for the need to adopt an approach that promotes the balance of all three aspects and ensures improved living.

Shri Modi also put forth the pioneering initiative of the ETC (electro-tridosh-gram), which, like the ECG, reflected the imbalance, if any, in the ‘tridosh’ of the human body.

Stating that the potential of every flower or fruit to cure illnesses is immense, Shri Modi, with a touch of wit to his talk, said, “Every flower has the potential to rid illness...one such flower is the Lotus.”

Yoga guru Baba Ramdev spoke of how Ayurveda was being given its due credit from the land of Gujarat, and stated how this form of medicine had cured several diseases like thyroid, BP and asthma. He said that all forms of medicine must be given due importance, and stressed on the need to have better infrastructure for promoting Ayurveda. “Let us think about our nation. Let us think how we can prevent our people from falling ill. Humare paas gyan hai aur vigyaan ka roop dene ke liye thodi madad chahiye...poori duniya ko swastha bana sakte hain,” said Baba Ramdev.

Dignitaries present on the occasion included Shri Nitin Patel, Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Shri Parbatbhai Patel, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, renowned Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, Shri Rajesh Kishore, additional secretary, Health and Family Welfare Dept, Government of Gujarat, Dr Varesh Sinha, Shri Acharya Balkrushna ji, head of Chikitsalayas of Patanjali Yogpeeth,

Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Bhartiya Janta Party Booth Karyakartas from five Lok Sabha seats, Hoshangabad, Chatra, Pali, Ghazipur and Mumbai (North).

Answering a question raised by a party Karyakarta from Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh about the fake claims and lies propagated by Congress, Prime Minister Modi said that the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh led by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has done so much work all these years that the Congress is left with no issues to criticize our government. This is why they have resorted to mischievous tactics like propagating lies. Prime Minister Modi also listed out several initiatives of the state government to ensure overall development across society and described how the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh had transformed it from a ‘BIMARU’ state to a ‘BEMISAAL’ state.

Moving ahead to address party Karyakartas from Chatra, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted how the BJP government in Jharkhand restarted long-pending infrastructure and welfare projects in the state.

Prime Minister Modi also mentioned how the ‘Statue of Unity’ will spread Sardar Patel’s vision and his contribution to India’s unity to the future generations of our country. PM Modi vehemently criticized the shallowness and disrespect demonstrated by Opposition parties about the ‘State of Unity’ and said how such actions showed the Congress’ utter ignorance about the contribution of our freedom fighters. He recalled a long list of freedom fighters like Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Acharya Kriplani and Dr BR Ambedkar, who were neglected and disrespected by the Congress and its allies.

Addressing a question asked by a booth Karyakarta from North Mumbai, PM Modi listed out various transformative schemes of the Central government such as Start Up India, Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, Surakshit Matritva Abhiyan and the recently launched Ayushman Bharat and described the positive impacts that these schemes have made on the lives of millions of ordinary Indians by empowering them at various levels. He further elaborated saying all these achievements were less the achievements of the government and more the achievements of the 130 crore people of India and their aspirations.

In his video interaction with party workers from Pali, Rajasthan, Prime Minister Modi described several achievements that India has achieved for the first time during his government. Of these, the significant ones include 5 lakh villages of India declaring themselves Open Defecation-Free (ODF), No Indian village is without electricity, India launched 104 satellites in outer space in one go and several other instances that never happened before in India.

The interaction which was organized through video conferencing facility on the NaMo App, concluded at Ghazipur in Uttar Pradesh where a party Karyakarta sought the Prime Minister’s guidance on the future course of Bhartiya Janta Party for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections. To this, PM Modi replied that the BJP had achieved the most through the efforts of its hard working and devoted Karyakartas and its strong organization.

Remembering Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji, PM Narendra Modi said that the BJP, which had only two seats in 1984, reached a milestone of 282 seats in 2014. For this, he credited the hardworking and devoted BJP Karyakartas across the country.

PM Modi ended his interaction by greeting everyone for the upcoming festival of Vijay Dashami.
