Rajasthan will Become Best State in Healthcare: Gehlot

Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said that he wanted Rajasthan to become the country’s best state in healthcare. Speaking at a program here, Gehlot said that the government was committed for providing better health services and will fulfil its promise to introduce right to health for everyone in the state. He also said that there was a need for an authority to regulate medical services in private hospitals. “The government’s thought is for providing better healthcare services. The government will soon bring legislation for right to health,” he said. Gehlot said that the earlier Congress government had introduced free medicines scheme which had benefitted a large number of people but the previous Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government had “weakened” it. No government scheme which benefits people should be discontinued, he said. The chief minister was speaking at the inauguration of Sri Ram cancer and super specialty center of Mahatma Gandhi hospital here. Health minister Raghu Sharma and others were present on the occasion. – Business Standard
