PM stops rally speech, tells medical team to help dehydrated man; video surfaces
Members of this team are equipped with a wide array of medical equipments
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Assam on Saturday to address a rally in Tamulpur ahead of the final phase of assembly polls in the state.
As he was making his speech, the Prime Minister stopped midway and brought everyone's attention to a BJP worker who fainted due to dehydration. The PM directed the medical team that was accompanying him to look after the party worker.
"The PMO medical team, please go and see the worker who is facing issues due to dehydration. Please help them immediately, the doctors who have come with me," PM Modi said.
A four-member team of medical experts travels with the Prime Minister as part of protocol. This team includes a personal physician, a paramedic, a surgeon and a critical care specialist.
Members of this team are equipped with a wide array of medical equipment, including a defibrillator, a portable suction machine and an infusion pump to deal with any medical emergencies.
During his speech in Tamulpur on Saturday, the Prime Minister said the BJP works for everyone while some parties divide the country for their vote banks.
The parties who work for everyone are called communal and those who work for their vote bank are called secular, PM Modi said.
Assuring the public that the BJP government at the Centre and in the state is working to fully implement the Assam Accord, the Prime Minister said that work still needs to be done in this regard.
Targeting the Congress-led grand alliance (Mahajot), PM Modi said that the people of Assam have decided to vote for an NDA government. "They cannot bear those who insult Assam's identity and propagate violence," the Prime Minister said.
Assam needs militants who are yet to surrender to return to the mainstream, said PM Modi.
