  • Manohar Parrikar says Human mind can overcome any disease

New Delhi:

On World Cancer Day, Prime Minster Narendra Modi said his government is committed towards ensuring early detection and affordable treatment of cancer.

PM Modi tweeted that he appreciates research on cancer, saying it will go a long way in ensuring a healthier planet.

“Today, on #WorldCancerDay we reiterate our commitment towards ensuring early detection and affordable treatment of cancer. Initiatives like Ayushman Bharat (health scheme) have a strong emphasis on providing quality healthcare and ensuring cancer-free lives,” he tweeted.

He hailed all those who are valiantly fighting the disease. “Millions are inspired by their remarkable zeal,” he said.

“I also appreciate those researching on aspects of cancer treatment. Their efforts will go a long way in ensuring a healthier planet,” he wrote

Meanwhile, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, the person who is bravely fighting the disease, has some encouraging and positive words for those who are suffering from cancer. Parrikar tweeted, “Human mind can overcome any disease. #WorldCancerDay.”

Parrikar has refused to let the disease slow him down. He is still serving his responsibilities as the Chief Minister of Goa with the same enthusiasm. In fact at an event recently he asked audience “How’s the Josh,” and gave a befitting rebuttal to Rahul Gandhi on Rafale allegation.
