'For Me, You're Incarnation of God': When a Paralytic Woman's Journey, Gratitude Made PM Modi Emotional

Prime Minister Narendra Modi turns emotional during ‘Jan Aushadhi Diwas’ event.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday turned emotional when a Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadi Pariyojana beneficiary broke down while narrating the challenges she faced in life after a paralysis.

PM Modi was interacting with a Dehradun-based woman named Deepa Shah via video conferencing on the occasion of ‘Jan Aushadhi Diwas’ when she shared how difficult it was to buy affordable treatment for paralysis. Suddenly, she burst into tears.

“I had a paralytic attack in 2011. I was not able to speak. I was admitted in the hospital and the medicines were too expensive… then I received medicines via Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadi Pariyojana. Earlier, I used to get my medicines at the cost of Rs 5,000 but through the scheme, now I get my medicines at Rs 1,500. This is how I save Rs 2,000-3,000 which I use to buy fruits for me and other things,” she narrated.

“Modi ji, I have not seen God but for me you are an incarnation of God. I am so thankful to you. The Chief Minister also helped me. The doctors had lost all hope and said I couldn’t live. Not only did I live, my costs also went down due to generic medicines. Modi ji, you are a God-like figure to me. I am very, very thankful to you,” the woman said while crying.

The camera then pans to an emotional Modi, who in a choked voice lauds the woman’s courage.
