Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the bravery displayed by the Indian armed forces while protecting the sovereignty and integrity of our motherland has sent a strong message to the world about India’s strength.

Sarma was speaking at an event of the signing of an agreement between the Medical Education and Research Department, of Assam government with Regional Centre (Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Services) Guwahati for providing cashless and cap less medical services for ECHS beneficiaries of defence forces.

Under the MoA the ECHS beneficiaries will be entitled to high-quality treatment in eight government medical colleges and hospitals.

Moreover, Regional Centre (Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Services) Guwahati also signed an MoA with Assam Cancer Care Foundation for high-quality cancer care services for the ECHS beneficiaries of the defence forces.

Speaking on the occasion, Sarma hailed the landmark initiative and said that the agreement would go a long way in extending medical coverage to the ex-servicemen and their family members in State Govt. Medical Colleges and cancer care hospitals.

He also congratulated the officials of the defence forces and the state Health Department for their collaboration to finalize the modalities of the agreement.

Referring to a few instances in the recent past, the Chief Minister said that many defence personnel from Assam sacrificed their lives while protecting the country’s sovereignty.

They are the pride and they immensely inspire generations after generations to devote their life and energy for building the democratic edifice of India.
