Kiran multispeciality hospital
Narendra Modi said the multispeciality hospital will benefit many poor people.
Notwithstanding the pressure from the pharmaceutical companies against the decision to reduce the price of stents and medicines, the move has been adopted to make heath-care affordable for the under-privileged, Modi said.
The effort devoted towards making this hospital should be known by the entire nation. It has been a commendable one: PM @narendramodi— PMO India (@PMOIndia) April 17, 2017

Besides supporting the 'Make in India' initiative, the Diamond Manufacturing Unit of the Hare Krishna Exports should also focus on 'Design in India', the PM said. Modi also heaped praise on Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's vision for India.
