AGARTALA, Sep 10 (TIWN): “We are not at all going to stop movement against BJP Govt’s inhuman, barbaric and historically shameful decision of scrapping free health care service in Government hospitals, also not going to tolerate BJP Govt’s Barbaric decision against People’s Rights in Health Service’, announced Congress leader Gopal Roy warning the BJP Govt after its inhuman decision of imposing fees on patients admitted in the Govt hospitals. Another Congress Women leader Panna Deb told the BJP Govt that these Govt hospitals are not anyone’s father’s property that it can be used for business. It is people’s right, built with people’s money. Congress leader Advocate Pijush Biswas stated that this decision is not just “inhuman” but also “violation” of Supreme Court’s guidelines. Another Congress leader, who is also Tripura BJP’s former Vice President Subal Bhowmik said, this decision also a part of massive scam which is collecting money from Central funded schemes. Congress President Pradyot Deb Barman demanded ‘All Party Meeting’ asking the BJP Govt to listen to the voice of the Opposition.

Congress, CPI-M on yesterday organized various protest rallies in Tripura in different spots of the State demanding resuming of the previous Health Care service.

In Agartala rally held in the evening, followed by GB-gherao, Gopal Roy said, “BJP Govt’s Anti-People notification which says all hospitals including GB, IGM and other Govt hospitals will be given service in exchange of money just like private nursing homes is a historically-shameful incident ever in Tripura since independence of India in 1947 and merger of Tripura with India in 1949”.

“A poor man has died after his family could not pay Rs. 10,000 to the GB hospital. The doctors didn’t even shift him on bed for operation. This Government thus has created a history of Shamelessness”, Gopal Roy told media.

“We (Congress) condemn this barbaric decision of the BJP Govt. Otherwise, Congress will go in massive protest. We will be forced to force the Govt to withdraw the decision”, added Roy.
