  • India's PM Narendra Modi presents slippers to woman

Unlike in 2015, when Modi had the advantage of a strongly supportive British Prime Minister in David Cameron, and when problems in the implementation of measures such as GST and demonetisation were yet to take place, this time around there has been much greater resonance to criticism of the PM.

He said over 100 districts in the country including Chattisgarh's Bijapur were backward even 70 years after the Independence. "I am confident the projects launched on the birth anniversary of Ambedkar will set new parameters", said Modi. Modi said the government was working on a dual strategy to develop Naxal-affected regions by developing them also trying to bring back the misguided youth back into the mainstream.

"If the district administration, public representatives and the people join hands in a mass movement, unprecedented results can be achieved".

"I want to make these districts not only "abhilashi" (aspirational) but also "mahtvakanshi" (ambitious) so that they emerge as a development model", he said. These districts, if encouraged, can be turned into models of development.

"115 backward districts in the country will be given priority in the Ayushman Bharat scheme", Modi said.

"The aspirations and hope of people are associated with Ambedkar's name", he said. "But, he renounced luxury and dedicated his life to empower the dalits and adivasis", he added.

He was speaking at the inauguration of Ambedkar National Memorial at Alipur Road here.

He also launched Van Dhan scheme which was announced in the budget.
