There is a good news for all Delhites particularly those hailing from the lower middle class and lowest ebb of the society depending upon government health schemes for free treatment etc as the leuitenent governor of Delhi Anil Baijal has shown a great heart for those living in Delhi by giving his consent to the AAP government’s people friendly proposals of free treatment in private hospitals for all the road accident victims including the victims of brutal acid attacks etc including free testing facilities to the various polyclinics functioning in various colonies and parts of Delhi especially those living in the unauthorised colonies and JJ clusters of the capital.
In addition to the above a separate Delhi government’s recomendation for providing the latest and advanced free radiological tests and surgeries have also been accorded the LG’s consent. This pro people move of the Delhi government if seriously implemented in toto would help a large section of the people of Delhi.
Prior to these recommendations having acknowledged the LG’s stamp with whom the Delhi government had been on loggerheads on the important issue of regularisation of the services of 15000 adhoc teachers, will send a positive message accross the cross section of the society of the AAP government’s pro people functioning.
It may be recalled that after coming to power in Delhi the Arvind Kejrival government has put special emphasis on the Dlhi health services and has not only made free medicines available in govt hospitals and dispensaries for the general public majority of whom are from the economic marginalised classes but has also made a provision through cabinet approval regarding free treatment and surgeries for critical illnesses to those with annual income of less then 2 lakhs in high profile private hospitals.
The day since the government of AAP has assumed power in Delhi for the last three years while on infrastructural and transport (DTC) sector the AAP government has not achieved anything fruitful or impressive but on water, schools and health front it has done tremendously well as compared to the previous state governments.
The Delhi CM has also for the time being given up his confrontationist attitude and posture with the prime minister Modi and the Delhi’s LG and is rather concentrating on finding ways and means to improve the lot of the electorates. The AAP government has also been successful in enticing the Bihari and Uttarakhandi votes by way of allocating them extra budget on Chat Puja and Uttarayini celebrations.
This year the Delhi AAP government is financially assisting Uttarakhandies celebrate Uttarayini function at 33 different locations of Delhi and has also won the hearts of Delhites by outrightly opposing the arbitrary manifold metro fare increase by holding demonstrations all over Delhi and offering Rs 500 crores annually to compensate the metro loss but the Modi government went ahead with the manifold increase in the metro fares thinking that if the fares are lessoned the entire political credit would go to Arvind Kejrival and his government. What’s your take friends?
