THE ALTERNATIVE HEALTH SERVICES ANNOUNCED THROUGH BIG ADVERTISEMENTS IN VARIOUS NEWSPAPERS TODAY BY THE ARVIND KEJRIWAL GOVERNMENT IS ONLY AN ATTEMPT TO DIVERT THE ATTENTION OF THE PEOPLE FROM THE CASES OF CORRUPTION AGAINST THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT – Manoj Tiwari
This deception of private hospital treatment is just like the promise of Mohalla Clinics, Swine Flu & Dengue clinics and free medicines – Vijender Gupta
New Delhi, 8th July. Addressing a Press Conference today BJP Delhi President Shri Manoj Tiwarialong with Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Shri Vijender Gupta have said that the alternative health services announced through big advertisements in various Newspapers today by the Arvind Kejriwal Government is only an attempt to divert the attention of the people from the cases of corruption against the present Government. Pradesh Vice President Shri Rajiv Babbar and Spokesperson Shri Ashwini Upadhyay were also present in the Press Conference.
Shri Manoj Tiwari said that presenting his last three budgets Kejriwal Government had claimed to increase 50% in the Budget allocations for the health services and also claimed providing all the medicines free of cost besides making all its hospitals, super specialty hospitals like the AIIMS. Now the Kejriwal Government has completed about half of its term and now this deception of providing health services through the private hospitals is complete admission of its failure to provide health services to the people.
Shri Tiwari further said that just like the fraud and hawala operation by the PWD & Health Minister Satyender Jain it seems that this scheme to provide health services through the private hospitals will be new opportunity for corruption.
Pradesh President said that the way in which the Government had to issue warning to the private hospitals and diagnostic centers to attend the seminar shows that this scheme of the Government has been announced in haste, without making proper preparations.
Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Shri Vijender Gupta said that the announcement made by the Kejriwal Government is a fraud like the Mohalla Clinics just like it proved to be a failure the same way this fraud with the people in the name of treatment in private hospitals will prove to be another fraud by this Government.
Shri Vijender Gupta said that the way in which the announcement has been made by the Government clearly shows that the Government has neither negotiated nor made any agreement with the empanelled hospitals and diagnostic centers. The private hospitals have commercial rates for surgical treatments and it is not feasible for any Government to pay at such rates. In such situation the Government must tell how it will arrange for the treatment of the people.
Shri Gupta said that the Government must clarify whether the private hospitals will provide the post surgical treatment to the patients? Similarly which hospital, Government or the Private hospital will be responsible for the care of the patient after the surgery. If the patient suffers any health complication after the surgery then which hospital will be responsible for it?
Shri Gupta has asked the Aam Aadmi Party what happened to its promises made in the Manifesto for establishing 900 new primary health centers, addition of 30,000 beds in the Government hospitals including 4000 beds for maternity centers and providing 5 beds of international standards per 1000 people.
Shri Gupta said that the Kejriwal Government has lost the trust of the people in the case of health services just like in the other services provided by the Government and this deception of private hospital treatment is just like the promise of Mohalla Clinics, Swine Flu & Dengue clinics and free medicines.
