Akhilesh blames Maya for NRHM graft

Launches Ashirwad Child Health Guarantee Scheme under NRHM

PTI | February 1, 2013



UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday alleged that the National Rural Health Mission was marred by corruption at all level during the previous BSP regime.

While launching 'Ashirwad Child Health Guarantee Scheme' under NRHM, Yadav said,"Everyone knows that corruption in the mission took place at what level and even schemes directly benefiting the people were stopped by the previous regime."

"Ayush doctors were terminated, but they were again given a chance to serve the people in the SP government," the chief minister said.

Yadav said that cheap and good treatment was required by the people living in the rural areas and the state government was paying special attention on improving medical facilities for villages and poor.

He also gave cheques of Rs 10 crore each for upgradation of nursing school at KGMC and new hospital at Queen Mary besides laying foundation stones of public and community health centres.

Chief Secretary Javed Usmani said that among six crore children in the age group of 2 to 18 years nearly 50 per cent were affected by malnutrition and anaemia.

Under the scheme, health examination and treatment of the children would be done, he said.

He said that in the first phase in 2012-13 children upto high school in rural areas would be covered under various health services.
