Nobel Peace Prize for Modi?

According to Financial Express, BJP's Tamil Nadu unit President Tamilisai Soundararjan Monday said she has 'nominated' Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the Nobel Peace Prize for launching the "world's largest" health scheme.

“The last date for Nomination for Nobel Peace Prize 2019 is January 31, 2019. The nomination processes start in September each year. University Professors and Members of Parliament among others can also nominate our Prime Minister,” the release added. Modi rolled out the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY)-Ayushman Bharat, and had termed it a “game-changer initiative to serve the poor”. It was the ‘biggest’ government-sponsored healthcare scheme in the world, he had said, adding “the number of beneficiaries is almost equal to the population of Canada, Mexico and the US taken together.”

According to the Prime Minister, more than 13,000 hospitals have been added as part of the scheme. He further said that trial for the rollout of the scheme was already being done in parts of the country.

The Prime Minister said that the scheme was based on the concept of 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas', adding that no discrimination would be done on the basis of caste, a community of religion.

A helpline number has been launched for any information on the flagship scheme of the central government. The helpline number is 14555. Besides, information about the scheme is also available at all health centres across the country.
