Congress targets BJP over Ayushmann Bharat scheme

Congress today alleged that NDA government's claims that Ayushman Bharat scheme is the biggest health programme in the world which will benefit ten crore families are hollow. 

Briefing media in New Delhi, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said, according to government's own data, over 11 crore families are already benefiting from insurance and other health programmes run by Centre and states.

He further stated that Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna does not cover a wide range of diseases and treatments that afflict millions including diabetes, and high blood pressure.

Mr Ramesh said, diabetes and high blood pressure are common ailments in India. He also alleged that Ayushman Bharat is a lifesaver not for common people but for private insurance companies and private hospitals.
