Chhattisgarh Plans to Replace Ayushman Bharat Scheme

Health Minister T.S. Singhdeo gave a broad hint on replacing the Center’s ambitious Ayushman Bharat Scheme with a state sponsored heath scheme. He made the comment while presiding over a review meeting of the health department at New Circuit House. Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Singhdeo said the financial provision made by Center in the Ayushman Bharat Scheme is so meagre and astonishingly the scheme is not for the treatment of ailment but releases aid for operation when the situation is beyond control. Calling the Ayushman a Rs polluted scheme’, Singhdeo said there were so many lacking in the scheme. Singhdeo further accepted that the hospitals in the state are facing the dearth of medical staff including nurses. Instructions were given in the review meeting to concerned officials for betterment of health facilities and making them reachable to the common man, he said. – Daily Pioneer
