Early Times Report

Udhampur, Dec 4: The poor people have described Ayushman Bharat health insurance as a cruse joke cracked on them by the authorities.
According to them, the scheme has totally ignored the poor. "Instead well off people/families have been included in the list," a group of people told Early Times.
"The scheme was intended for the welfare of poor class but the major beneficiaries of it remained the well off class," Sham Lal, a petty vendor said.
Pertinently the Prime Minister launched the scheme for the poor to give them an insurance cover up to 5 lakhs but documentary evidence reveals that the poor have been left out.
Krishna, wife of a mason said the family lives from hand to mouth.
"We had high expectation from the scheme but we do not figure anywhere in the list of beneficiaries," she said.
CMO Udhampur KC Dogra said he was busy ina meeting and did not respond to Early times queries. The aggrieved people have sought appropriate me43asures from the Governor.
