“My driver’s father was to have surgery in Delhi, but he could not get benefits under this scheme,” P Chidambaram claimed.
New Delhi| Congress leader and former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said on Friday that he has never seen innocent people like Indians. He said the Indian people immediately accept the government claims about the implementation of the schemes. Chidambaram was addressing the literary program. He said, “If anything gets published in the newspaper, people accept it. We trust anything. ”
Chidambaram added, “The government claimed that electricity has reached all the villages of the country. Toilets have been made for 99% of the families. People believed this. The same happened in the case of Ayushman Bharat.” “My driver’s father was to have surgery in Delhi, but he could not get benefits under this scheme,” Chidambaram claimed.
The former Finance Minister said, “I asked him (the driver) that if he has an Ayushman card, he should go to the hospital.” When he went to the hospital, people said that they had no information about any such scheme. But we believe that the Ayushman Bharat scheme has been implemented in the entire country. We believe that any disease gets treated under this scheme. That too without any expense. This is our innocence. Many news and figures are completely opposite of the truth.”
Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Friday targeted the central government in a conversation with reporters. He said – “India is a democratic country. We want democracy to last. Why Hindu-Muslims are being separated in the Citizenship Amendment law case. Hindus are secular. Their thinking is big, but the government is narrow-minded. They are manipulating the core tenet of Hindutva for political gains.”
