AGARTALA, Feb 13 (TIWN): Tripura BJP Govt yet to think over the issue of scrapping free medical services from Govt hospitals, may cost heavily in coming poll. The issue turned crucial in state politics after BJP’s defeat at Delhi where Health Services made by Kejriwal Govt 100% free, also improved the quality. Aam Aadmi Party leader, Delhi Dy CM Manish Sisodia’s biggest Statement in Post-Poll media interaction slapped Tax-Sipping BJP Govt. Specially in neglected states like Tripura which never gets national media limelights on its real issues and public suffering, BJP has continued tax-tortures, looting public and imposing high charges in each sector. Electricity rate was increased, Free Medical Health Service was removed and taxes in all fields almost increased, including water-taxes. Today, one day after poll result, the AAP in post poll press conference said, this election victory doesn’t only mean that Arvind Kejriwal is the son of the soil but what is called “Desh Bhakti” it is proven.Manish Sisodia said, “Desh Bhati is to provide cheap and free services, to provide safety to women”.

Now BJP’s strict to the cruel decision of “scrapping free medical services” to be one of the major caused of the poll blows.

Public have been demanding reinstallation of the service immediately like before. Most of the people have no interest for Ayushman Bharat insurance like issues, rather sought 100% free medical services. Revenue collection in exchange of “saving life” has caused pathos across Government hospitals but the BJP led State Govt has turned a deaf ear. Since the BJP led State Government had drafted provisional revised tariffs of 14 hospital services and 286 bio-chemistry, pathological, radiological, digital and clinical tests, it is causing massive criticism.
