PM Modi’s Speech in Rajya Sabha about Chamki fever
• The deaths in Bihar due to Acute Encephalitis or Chamki Fever are unfortunate and a matter of shame for us.
• It is after a long time that a government with a full majority was elected once again with a full majority. In this mandate we see the desire of the people for stability. Infact, this trend of stable governments is being seen in various states too.
• We need to take the issue seriously. People should be made aware of vaccination, safety, and other health benefits. I believe that this is a sad state. Today it is one state, can happen in another state tomorrow.
• The need of the hour is to strengthen Ayushman Bharat. We want our poor to get top quality and affordable treatment. I am in constant touch with the state government and I am sure we will collectively come out of this crisis soon.
