New Delhi, Feb 4 : Alleging that the Aam Aadmi Party led Delhi government prevented the Centre from implementing the Ayushman Bharat scheme, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday slammed the ruling party and said 'Will a Mohalla clinic travel along, if a Delhiite falls sick outside Delhi?' "Had Delhi government implemented Ayushman Bharat Yojana (PMJAY), then any person could have taken advantage from it", Mr Modi said while addressing an election rally here at Dwarka.
Ayushman Bharat Yojana, also known as the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY), is a scheme that aims to help economically vulnerable Indians who are in need of healthcare facilities. PMJAY provides a coverage of Rs 5 lakh per family, per year, thus helping the economically disadvantaged obtain easy access to healthcare services.
Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said the ensuing Delhi polls are the first polls of this decade. "India's progress will depend upon decisions taken today," he stressed. (UNI)
