Yogi inaugurates Smile Mashal Jyoti event

Lucknow, Inaugurating the Smile Mashal Jyoti event here on Sunday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adiyanath said that there should be emotional dialogue between the patients and doctors. "We have lost this dialogue in this commercial age. Respect for the doctors too has diminished due to priority being given to commercial interest," he said. The Chief Minister said that Smile-like projects, bring happiness on the faces of every section of the society and also present doctor's sensitive and human face. This initiative is an attempt to restore the dialogue between the doctors and the common man, he said. Describing Smile Mashal Jyoti programme as a big campaign, he said that, if a large section of the society joins the awareness program, then it becomes a mass movement. The Chief Minister said "there are three reasons behind failure of any government scheme. The first is, we do not plan it properly, second - the lack of awareness about the plan, and the third is people responsible for the programme do not discharge their duty properly." During the programme, the Chief Minister honoured the children associated with Smile Foundation. Simultaneously, he also released the book on cleft care by Dr AK Singh of KGMU.

The CM also honoured many doctors from different districts. Prior to the inauguration of the programme, Smile Mashal Jyoti rally was organised at 1090 intersection, here. The rally was flagged off by Additional Chief Secretary Awanish Awasthi. Along with this, an awareness campaign was organised through a street play. The purpose was to bring smile in the lives of children born with cleft lips. While flagging off the rally Mr Awasthi said that special arrangements have been made for the treatment of such children. "It is a good effort to build confidence among children. A new life can be given to the children through the operation by Smile Campaign," he said. During the program, Cabinet Minister Ashutosh Tandon, Cabinet Minister Rajesh Agarwal, Mayor Dr Sanyukta Bhatia, all senior doctors associated with the Smile Mashal Jyoti program were present.
