Murty emphasized the importance of preventive healthcare, noting the vaccine’s effectiveness and affordability.

Murty also urged the recognition of 57 domestic sites as World Heritage Sites to boost tourism. She highlighted significant locations, including the Bahubali statue in Karnataka, Lingaraja Temple, and Shivaji forts in Maharashtra.
