“I urge the chief minister to adopt the Ayushman Bharat scheme of the central government along with the state’s own programme. Both the Centre and the state should work together for protection of people’s health,” he said.

The Centre has always supported the state government in strengthening its health system, the Union minister said.

If Odisha does not implement the Ayushman Bharat scheme, many who need the benefits most may/ be deprived of them, he said, adding people covered under the central scheme would be able to get free health service even outside their states./
