He explained that PM TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan is a campaign in which the government and civil societies joined hands to support TB patients in their recovery from the disease.

He appealed on behalf of 2000 plus patients afflicted by TB for more donations as there are now only 72 Nikshay/donors. He appealed for more donors to register themselves at : Governor also appealed to the banking sectors to explore the possibility of assisting Nikshay Mitra in their respective areas. He also called for support from the NGOs in Mizoram, including the YMA, MHIP, and MUP which have active local branches throughout the State.

    Governor thanked the efforts given by the Health Department in this initiative. He urged them to increase their effort to make the state try to become the TB Free State as soon as possible.
