BJP ridicules Mann over replacing Ayushman Scheme by Mohalla Clinics

Chandigarh, August 7, 2022 (Yes Punjab News)
The Bharatiya Janata Party today ridiculed the Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann’s statement that Punjab will not need Ayushman scheme after Mohalla clinics will get functional.

“This only reveals the ignorance of the government about the Ayushman scheme or a conspiracy to close it down in Punjab to provide benefits to private hospitals”, the state BJP general secretary Dr Subhash Sharma said here today.

He pointed out, the Ayushman scheme is for providing super-specialised secondary and tertiary treatment to all those who cannot afford it, while the Mohalla clinics are for first aid and primary medical care.

“Punjab in fact does not need any Mohalla clinics since it already has a strong network of dispensaries spread across the state, particularly the rural areas”, the BJP leader said, while adding, even if the Mohalla clinics start working in Punjab, these can only provide basic health facilities, though that also was doubtful as these have already failed in Delhi.

The Punjab BJP general secretary apprehended a conspiracy to deliberately discourage the Ayushman scheme in Punjab to force people to go for private treatment at an exorbitant cost.

Dr Sharma said that the healthcare services in Punjab were already in a shambles and the state government did not seem to be serious in bringing these back on track.

He said, the PGI resumed the treatment of Punjab patients not because the state government paid the pending dues but only because the Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervened.
