BanglaHunt Desk: The Supreme Court has moved on the 'Ayushman Bharat Yojana'. The Supreme Court has issued notices to four states of India as to why the project was not launched in four states. These states include West Bengal, Orissa, Telangana and even Delhi.
Ayushman Bharat Project
Under the auspices of the 'Ayushman Bharat Project', the central government allocates Tk 8,400 crore annually for 500 million people in the country. In this scheme, a person can get medical insurance up to Rs 5 lakh. Under the auspices of this project, people will get help from any kind of treatment to the current epidemic crisis.
The 'Health Partner' project is more effective than 'Ayushman Bharat'
The administration of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has claimed that Bengal's 'Swasthyasathi' project is much more effective than the Centre's 'Ayushman Bharat'. Besides, all the upper and lower classes of Bengal get free medical treatment in government hospitals here. That is why the Mamata government has always demanded that there is no need to launch the 'Ayushman Bharat Yojana' in the state.
The Supreme Court was accused
Unlike Bengal, the Kejriwal administration in Delhi, the KCR administration in Telangana and the Naveen Patnaik administration in Orissa have not launched the 'Ayushman Bharat Project' in their states. A three-member bench headed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court was set up to hear the allegations of a man named Perala Shekhar Rao.
Supreme Court issues notice to Odisha, Telangana, Delhi and West Bengal after hearing a petition claiming non-implementation of Ayushman Bharat Yojana in these states.

The case is being heard in the court
Hitendra Roth, counsel for the petitioner in the case against the four states, said, “People are forced to go to private hospitals for treatment as they do not have access to the 'Ayushman Bharat Project' in these states.” Therefore, their request is that this project should be implemented in such a way that every citizen can take advantage of this project. However, the next hearing was scheduled for two weeks later.
