Jajpur:25/4/19: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh came down heavily on BJD president and Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today for not implementing Ayushman Bharat Yojana in Odisha.
Addressing a poll meeting in Bari of Jajpur district today, Rajnath said that while the Ayushman Bharat Yojana has been implemented by other states of the country, people of Odisha are being deprived of the benefits of the National Health Protection Mission.
“The Ayushman Bharat Yojana has been implemented across the country. All those who have the Ayushman Bharat Yojana card are getting health coverage up to Rs 5 lakh. However, the Naveen-led BJD government is not implementing the scheme in Odisha. Likewise, there are several centrally-sponsored schemes which the state government should implement,” said the Union Home Minister.
