The wholesale distributor has also met the IGMC hospital management, but no positive response has been received. The biggest question here is that on one hand the government talks about promoting the health sector, on the other hand the free treatment that patients get under the schemes is also not being done. In hospitals, patients are forced to stumble from door to door. On Himcare and Ayushman cards, patients get free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh. In such a situation, it has become difficult for poor patients to get treatment.

If patients do not get medicines under Himcare and Ayushman, then the government will have to suffer the consequences in the Lok Sabha elections. Patients get a lot of relief from free medicines. Poor patients do not have lakhs of rupees for treatment. In such a situation, the only support they have is Himcare and Ayushman card. If this scheme is also stopped then the public will protest against the government. The government should make its payment on time so that patients do not face any problems in hospitals.

Health Minister Colonel Dhaniram Shandil is repeatedly saying that the pending payments of Himcare and Ayushman will be made soon. Although the opposition had raised this issue during the Assembly session, during that time also the Health Minister had replied that this payment would be made as soon as possible, but the payment has not been made yet. Now whole sale distributors are also going to take to the streets. Now the supply of other medicines can also be stopped at any time.
