But I declare that India would be free from tuberculosis five years ahead by 2025. As per the latest reports, tuberculosis was the most prevalent among all communicable diseases in the country. Over 10 million people contract TB every year.

The Prime Minister termed the Delhi summit a landmark event before the United Nations General Assembly in September this year as it is an important step for entire humanity.

But we need to get our act together now.

While addressing the summit PM said, "I would like to announce that we have set the aim to eradicate TB from India By 2025". The PM's announcement today makes the advanced target for TB elimination official.

India has about 27 percent of the estimated global cases of TB, as well as a quarter of drug-resistant TB patients.

In a bid to eradicate tuberculosis from India by the year 2025, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched a campaign against the infectious disease. Modi said his government was moving ahead with the principle of "treat every TB patient best at the very first opportunity" and was roping in the private sector as well. We want to see this kind of leadership replicated in all 30 high-burden countries. "Together, we aim to reach 40 million people with quality TB treatment by 2023".

He praised the ground level workers for their hard work and said, "Between TV and TB, it's easier to move away from the latter."TB Survivors can easily influence the disease-affected and they can help out in the programme, Mr Modi said while pointing out to a survivor from Bihar Siddheshwar Kumar Singh, who was sitting in the audience and had earlier shared his story".

"If the world is to win the war against TB, we must win the battle here in India", the WHO director-general said. We should start by changing the status quo to move toward a comprehensive standard of care for TB.

He also urged the ministry of health to explore the potential of Ayurveda in treating TB and share the results with other countries.

As India's Prime Minister Modi recently said: "We can not allow such human tragedies for a disease that is treatable and for which drugs and diagnostics are available in the public health care system".
