New Delhi , Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena asked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to implement Ayushman Bharat health scheme in Delhi. Due to non-implementation of the scheme in Delhi, lakhs of migrants are deprived of its benefits. Due to non-implementation of the scheme, they are deprived of the facilities of the scheme. The file regarding this scheme has been withdrawn by applying Rule 19(5) of TOBR.

According to Raj Nivas, the Lieutenant Governor said that despite the consent in the year 2018 and the announcement of its implementation in the Budget 2020, there is a delay in approving the file. The Lieutenant Governor has withdrawn the file using the rules.

Responding to this, Delhi Health Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj said that the Lieutenant Governor is not aware of the ground reality of Delhi. He said that the number of patients in hospitals in neighboring BJP ruled states is equal to the hospitals in Delhi under Ayushman Bharat.

According to Rajnivas, the Lieutenant Governor has also underlined the fact that applicants have been waiting in the list for issuance of ration cards to eligible beneficiaries since 2018, while poor patients suffering from serious illnesses due to lack of documents are getting relief under other available schemes. Are also not able to avail health benefits. LG Saxena said in a file noting, “I am bound to draw attention here that an issue as important as the health of our people has become a victim of mindless politics only for the purpose of elevating each other and taking credit. “

The Lieutenant Governor emphasized that since 2018, successive health ministers (Satyendar Jain, Manish Sisodia and Bhardwaj) withheld the file on at least six occasions on the basis of “trivial political pretexts”, despite the fact that the credit His purpose of taking was addressed at the very beginning. The Government of India has made it clear that Ayushman Bharat can be associated with any name that the Delhi Government wants.

Delhi Government’s Health Minister Saurabh Bhardwaj says that the Lieutenant Governor does not know the ground reality of the Ayushman Bharat scheme. The CAG report has revealed that there were major irregularities in the scheme. Many problems related to patient data and participation of private hospitals have come to light, raising questions related to the practicality of the scheme. He said that we request the Lieutenant Governor to immediately resolve the problem of shortage of staff and payment of dues, so that better health facilities can be provided to the people of Delhi.
