New Delhi, Jun 7 : Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday wrote to Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Harsh Vardhan and said if Delhi's health scheme is stopped and 'Ayushman Bharat Yojana' is implemented, then residents would be affected.
The letter said, "A good health scheme is already implemented in Delhi. Stopping it and implementing another won't benefit anyone. If Delhi's Health Scheme is stopped and 'Ayushman Bharat Yojana' is implemented, residents will be affected".
Kejriwal was replying to a letter of June 3 and said if the Union Health Minister saw something missing in Delhi's health scheme then that could be included in it.
He asked, "When Delhi's health service is 10 times better than the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, then why does the central government want to keep the people of Delhi deprived of good and free healthcare?"
"You are a good and experienced doctor. If you want to give any personal advice to improve anything in the Delhi's healthcare scheme, then you are most welcome,' he wrote. (UNI)
