West Bengal has withdrawn from flagship programme PMJAY, joining 3 other states that have stayed out. What are the reasons behind the states’ reluctance; what could this mean for the programme’s future?
Sources said that the Opposition parties suggested that another session, either a Budget Session or an extension of the Winter Session, be called two-three days earlier to discuss the Bill in detail and pass it rather than doing so in a hurried manner.
Replying to a query by Shiv Sena member Sanjay Raut, Swaraj said, “On that day, the Supreme Court verdict was pronounced. He (French Minister) was very happy. He expressed joy and felt there was no need to have a discussion.”
Simply put, 2019 will be the year of Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PMJAY), the year that will make or break the flagship programme that already has the international health community excited and talking.
