Like education, HP’s healthcare sector is also in shambles: AAP

AAP’s HP Chairman Surjit Thakur says Jai Ram Thakur should answer 10 questions that were raised by residents of various constituencies during AAP’s ‘Parivartan Yatra’ within a fortnight .

HP Chief Minister, Aam Aadmi Party State Chairman Surjit Thakur says Jai Ram Thakur should answer 10 questions that were raised by residents of various constituencies during the ‘Parivartan Yatra’ of the AAP within fifteen days, otherwise the public is ready to give this government an appropriate response in the elections to the assembly.

The chairman of the AAP said that they held a rally in 68 assembly constituencies of HP’s 12 districts, during which their workers reached out to the people to listen to their grievances.

The issue of poor education came to the fore in every district, Surjit said. He said that during a public dialogue in Kullu, a woman told how her children were deprived of a good education due to the lack of teachers in the local school. “This is not an isolated incident, but the story of almost every village,” he added.

He said that like education, the health sector was also in shambles in Himachal. The AAP president told Chamba that they had heard of a man whose pregnant wife had died due to lack of medical facilities. He claimed that the Chamba medical school was understaffed, but the government has done nothing in the past five years to address the problem.

He said people were now aware that neither the BJP nor the Congress governments had done anything for them.

Meanwhile, the AAP’s founding chairman in Himachal, Nikka Singh Pathania, and the organization’s former secretary Shespal Saklani joined the Congress in the presence of senior party leader and campaign committee chief Sukhwinder Singh. Sukhu. Both leaders said they felt “suffocated” in the party.
