He started his address by saluting the ‘corona warriors’ for risking their lives to conserve others amid the coronavirus pandemic plus prayed to the souls of people who lost their lives due to Covid-cyclone and 19 Amphan in West Bengal.
The minister launched a sharp attack on chief minister Mamata Banerjee praoclaiming that she is not allowing the implementation of Ayushman Bharat Yojana which has benefitted a lot of people across the nation.
“I along with the people of Bengal wish to ask you this, why are you do not allowing it to get implemented? ” Shah questioned.
“Mamata ji, do poor people of Bengal do not have straight to receive free and quality medical aid? The reason why Ayushman Bharat scheme not allowed here? Mamata Ji, political games really should not be played together with the rights of poor people,” Shah further added.
