State Govt not implementing PMABY properly: BJP

Gangtok, 03 Dec:

Bharatiya Janata Party’s Sikkim unit vice-president, Mohan Gurung, today questioned why the State Government was not properly implementing the Pradhan Mantri Ayushman Bharat Yojana offering free insurance of Rs 5 lakh to every family.

The party informs that the programme was launched on 23 September and while a few from Sikkim were also insured at the time of the launch, due to the failure of the government to properly implement the scheme, most remain deprived of this programme.

A BJP press release contends that fearing that all the credit will go to the BJP, the State government has been dragging its feet in implementing the scheme.

On the same, the BJP has directed the State government to properly implement all programmes and schemes of the Centre like other states do in the interest of the people.
