Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize 2019, this year also. But this time, the nomination was sent by BJP Tamil Nadu president Dr. Tamilisai Soundarajan.
She said that she has nominated Prime Minister Modi for launching the world’s largest healthcare scheme Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana – ‘Ayushman Bharat’ and also appealed to people to join her in nominating the Prime Minister.
Her husband, Prof Dr. P Soundarajan, Head of Department and Senior Consultant in Nephrology at a private university in the state, has also nominated the Prime Minister for the honour.
“This path-breaking initiative of visionary Prime Minister Modi will transform the lives of millions of people especially the underprivileged and vulnerable,” she said and added that the leading cause of poverty in India is healthcare expenditure for tertiary and secondary care.
Soundarajan further urged the healthcare institutions and medical practitioners to fully utilize the scheme, which will eventually revolutionize the health care delivery system in India. She
also appealed to all healthcare providers in India and abroad to join her in nominating Prime Minister Modi for Nobel Peace Prize 2019.
