Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath urges the people, ministers and lawmakers to adopt a tuberculosis patient each and help in achieving the target to make the state free of TB by 2025.

"You do not need to keep the child at home. All a person needs to do is to keep a check on the child," Adityanath said. Post-adoption, each TB patient will be entitled to Rs 500 per month for a nutritious diet and the cash amount will be directly transferred to the patient's account, the state government said in a statement. Adityanath appealed to the people of the state to complete a full course of TB treatment, which is absolutely free in the state.
