The first beneficiary in Maharashtra, who received health card from Sonia Gandhi, is not poor as claimed, but owns a well-built home that has an air conditioner, claims ABP Mazha
According to a news report from the channel, Shakuntala Bhagat, who was handed over the health card by none other than United Progress Alliance (UPA) chairperson and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi at the Kasturchand Park in Nagpur on 21st November, owns an eight room house in Wadi village. Bhagat uses six rooms for her family, while two are given on rent.
Bhagat's home has TV set, sofa set, bed, good kitchen, gas stove and other necessary furniture. She even owns an air conditioner. Bhagat who wears a thick golden chain had studied till sixth standard. Her family consists of her two sons, two daughter-in-laws and grandchildren. One of her sons is in transportation business and owns two trucks. Bhagat's other son works in a private company.
Surprisingly, as per the terms and conditions of RGJAY, the beneficiary's total annual income should be less than Rs1 lakh. However, looking at the living standard of Bhagat, the first beneficiary of the Scheme in Maharashtra, it looks like the real beneficiaries would be again deprived benefits of social scheme as usual.
Local Congress leaders who proposed Bhagat’s name, played ignorance about the financial condition of Bhagat while speaking with the news channel.
The health card facilitates free surgeries of 971 different kinds, including kidney and heart operations, costing up to Rs1.5 lakh for 2.11 crore potential beneficiaries in the state (with annual income up to Rs1 lakh) at any of the empanelled private and government hospitals.
