Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt. :

It was my honour to witness the Nair Hospital Centenary celebrations in the presence of CM Uddhav Thackeray ji.

The institute stands taller in today’s time, with a rich heritage of selfless service to the nation!

Even after 100 years since its inception, Nair Hospital continues to serve the city and its people. It has witnessed many life-changing stories, events, epidemics, and now, a pandemic. Through all this, Nair Hospital has continued to be a healer for many!

Today, we also released ‘Covid Reminisces’ book by BMC and launched a Student Exchange Program with Cardiff, along with a Clinical Skills Laboratory.

Sakhalin-I oilfield in Russian Far-East has proved to be one of our most successful investments abroad: Hardeep Puri

Hardeep Singh Puri – Union Minister:

Vajpayee Ji’s visionary leadership.

Visited Sakhalin-I oilfield in Russian Far-East.

Project concluded in 2001 as a result of the futuristic vision of our beloved former PM Sh Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji.

Has proved to be one of our most successful investments abroad.

Our investment of USD 330m in 2001 has already given us a surplus of USD 3.7 bn; it will yield more in the years to come.

Project is an engineering marvel with one of the tallest rigs in the world, at Odaptu which I visited today.
