Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that as a result of the sacrifice, hard work, service and dedication of the doctors during the crisis of Corona, a feeling developed for them in the public that ‘Tum Rakshak Kahu Ko Darna’ (you are the protector, then why should we be afraid).
It was the result of the constant hard work of the doctors that in the dire circumstances of Corona, people started experiencing ‘Sankat Kate, Hare Sab Peeda’ (crisis is over, all pain is gone) due to the presence of the doctors. Control of corona infection in Madhya Pradesh became possible only due to the efforts of doctors and paramedical staff. Today, on the occasion of Doctor’s Day, on behalf of the people of the state, I express my gratitude to the doctors and pay them respects.
Chouhan said that the possibility of a third wave of corona infection has been expressed by scientists. The state government is fully prepared to face, prevent and stop this wave. The state government is continuously active in this direction. Doctors also have to take all measures to save the state from the third wave. Chouhan was addressing a dialogue and felicitation programme organised on the occasion of Doctor’s Day.
In the programme at Minto Hall, Chouhan interacted with the doctors. The doctors were honoured by the Chouhan in the programme. Digital certificates were also distributed by Chouhan to the doctors serving during the Corona period.
The doctors of all government and non-government medical colleges and hospitals of the state were connected to the programme online. Medical Education Minister Vishwas Sarang and Public Health and Family Welfare Minister Prabhu Ram Choudhary along with senior doctors Dr. N.P. Mishra and Dr. H.H. Trivedi were present in the programme. The programme started with Madhya Pradesh song. Earlier, Chouhan also planted a Peepal sapling in the Minto Hall premises.
The Chief Minister paid a heartfelt tribute to the doctors who sacrificed their lives in the difficult times of Corona pandemic, remembering them for their unlimited services and duty and devotion to humanity. Chouhan also remembered Dr. Bidhan Chandra Rai. Doctor’s Day is celebrated on July 1 on the birthday of Dr. Rai.
Chouhan said that people’s trust in government health institutions has increased manifold during the Corona period. Government as well as private hospitals were very cooperative in dealing with the corona infection. Special rates of corona treatment were fixed by the state government for private hospitals. Due to which a large number of people got the benefit of Ayushman Bharat Yojana. In order to build Aatm Nirbhar Madhya Pradesh, work is going on to strengthen the health infrastructure. The number of medical colleges is also increasing. People should also be motivated to adopt a healthy lifestyle by combining Ayurveda, Homeopathy and Yoga.
