Representatives from the health sector and medical institutions were in attendance, setting the stage for a budget focused on health and development.

The meeting took place at his office in Jaipur, where Sharma outlined the state government's vision for a "Developed Rajasthan-2047."

"If the action plan is made keeping future demands in mind, there will be proper allocation of resources, and the vision can also be fulfilled," Sharma stated.

Focus on Good Governance & Inclusive Growth

Deputy CM and Finance Minister Diya Kumari, who also addressed the meeting, reiterated the state government's commitment to inclusive governance and development.

"The basis of democracy is good governance, and we are ensuring participation from every section, which will reinforce the concept of 'Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas'," Kumari said.
