Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Government’s Health Minister Satyendar Jain reached Chamkaur Sahib to see the condition of health centers in the assembly constituency of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and exposed the pitiable condition of health services in Punjab. Jain reached the health centers of Suratpur and Rattangarh of Chamkaur Sahib with journalists on Saturday morning and exposed the claims made by Channi government on health services in Punjab being better than Delhi.
Jain accused Chief Minister Channi that as soon as the Chief Minister listened to the news of my arrival, he got the health center locked. The dispensary's gate was locked so that we could not get to know the truth. The toilet of the dispensary was open which was very dirty and smelled bad. While showing the toilet, Jain said that the people of Channi unfortunately forgot to lock the toilet.
Addressing the journalists, Jain asked that when Chief Minister Channi could not improve the condition of his own local health centers, then what could be expected of him about improving the condition of the health system of the whole Punjab. There are only empty buildings in the name of dispensaries and hospitals in Punjab. There are no doctors, no medical staff, no medicines and no test facilities in health centers. Instead of improving healthcare, Chief Minister Channi is misleading the people of Punjab by making false promises and announcements, said Jain.
Referring to the health facilities of the Delhi government, Jain said that the Delhi border is not far from here. You stand there and count how many ambulances are going from Punjab to Delhi and vice-versa. You will come to know the difference in the health system of Delhi and Punjab.
Promising the people of Punjab, he said that when the Aam Aadmi Party forms the government in Punjab in 2022, we will open clinics in all villages. Three things will definitely be available, around the clock, in all village clinics; qualified doctors, all types of medicines - free of cost and more than 200 free tests. After March 2022, the people of Punjab will not need to go to big hospitals and spend money. More than 95% of people's treatment will be done in these clinics itself. The government of Aam Aadmi Party will renovate all the government hospitals lying in pathetic condition and like Delhi, will provide excellent treatment facilities free of cost in the government hospitals of Punjab.
