LG has no idea about ground reality: AAP

  • | Monday | 26th February, 2024

n Taking a dig at Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena, the  AAP Government said he has no idea about the ground reality of Delhi regarding issues being faced with patient data, shortage of staff and private hospital participation in the  implementation of the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, in the national capital. The AAP Government has requested the LG to ensure that the vacant sanctioned posts of doctors, specialists, nurses and paramedics are filled by UPSC/DSSSB at the earliest and during the interim period these posts are filled on a contractual basis so that all the services in Delhi government hospitals are made functional. Amidst mounting concerns over the efficacy of the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, Delhis Lieutenant Governor (LG) finds himself under scrutiny for a perceived disconnect from the ground realities plaguing the capitals medical infrastructure. The LG faces calls to address these challenges firsthand. Revelations of ineligible beneficiaries reaping benefits from PMJAY, as exposed by a recent CAG report, further emphasize the pressing need for action.  As discrepancies within Ayushman Bharat come to light, including issues with patient data and private hospital participation, the schemes practicality is called into question, the AAP government said in a statement. Urgent appeals are made for the LG to tackle staffing shortages and settle outstanding payments to uphold seamless healthcare to the common people, as demands for accountability need to be ensured through the participation of the Health Secretary in the hospital inspections and meetings called by the Health Minister. It is sad to see that despite spending almost one and half years as LG of Delhi, Mr. Vinay Saxena has no idea about the ground reality of Delhi, it said.The LG does not know that at most of the hospitals in Delhi, especially GTB Hospital & LBS Hospital and RTRM Hospital, which are situated either at the border of the BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh and the BJP-ruled Haryana, the patient load from these BJP-ruled neighboring States is comparable to the patient load from Delhi in these hospitals. In certain hospitals like GB Pant Hospital, almost half of the total number of surgeries performed is on patients from states wherein the Ayushman Bharat scheme is operational, like the BJP-ruled states of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. It is very sad to see that though the LG is boasting about the Ayushman Bharat scheme, there is practically no success on the ground, it said.
