Give all 29 LS seats to BJP: Amit Shah to MP voters

Home Minister Amit Shah urged the voters in Madhya Pradesh to give all 29 Lok Sabha seats to BJP in the upcoming general election. Addressing a public rally in Khajuraho, he emphasized the need to make PM Modi stronger by ensuring a massive victory for the party.

Shah welcomed Congress leaders who feel suffocated or sidelined to join BJP, stating, “Those who are not respected in Congress and want to join the BJP, they should be welcomed.” The party aims to increase 370 votes at every booth to achieve their target of 370 seats in the upcoming elections.

The initiative is a collaboration between the Medanta Foundation and the Health Department in Gurugram, aiming to empower patients to take charge of their health.

“The ‘Tactile Breast Examination’ system was introduced in India six years ago to train visually impaired women in breast diseases and examination. This training has equipped them to conduct clinical internships under expert guidance at Medanta Gurugram,” said Pankaj Sahni, Group CEO & Director of Medanta.
