Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged health-care start-ups, particularly those in the Ayush sector, to make their content available online in all UN-recognized languages, rather than simply English. In today’s broadcast of ‘Mann ki Baat,’ the Prime Minister stated that the Ayush manufacturing business is worth over Rs 1.40 lakh crore rupees and expressed confidence that Ayush Start-Ups from India will rule the world with superior quality products. “I have a request for the start-ups of the health sector and especially the Ayush start-ups. Whatever portal you design online; whatever content you create, try to make it in all the languages recognised by the United Nations,” he stated.
“There are many such countries in the world where English is neither spoken nor understood much. Promote your information keeping such countries in mind as well. I am sure that soon, Ayush start-ups from India with better quality products will reign all over the world,” he added.
The Prime Minister noted that the Ayush business is always growing, stating that the market for Ayurvedic medicines was about Rs 22,000 crore six years ago and has now grown to Rs 1.40 lakh crore. “This means that the possibilities in the sector are always rising,” PM Modi remarked, adding that “Ayush is becoming a subject of attention” in the world of start-ups. PM Modi spoke on the 87th episode of ‘Mann Ki Baat,’ his monthly radio address that airs on the last Sunday of each month.
