Jammu, January 10:
Minister for Health and Medical Education, Bali Bhagat today left red-face, when not only opposition, but members from PDP-BJP coalition criticised his department over NHM and various other health issues.
The issue of brutal cane-charge on the male and female workers of NHM on Tuesday just 100 meters from Assembly House witnessed sharp reactions from MLAs from NC, Congress as well as from BJP and PDP too.
During Zero Hour, the Health Minister has given his reply and said that the scheme is centrally sponsored and was launched in 2006. The NHM workers have submitted the affidavits that they will not work anywhere till they are part of NHM. He added that as per rules and regulations, they cannot be regularising, but a file over their demand has been submitted with the cabinet.
BJP state president at MLA Jammu West, Sat Sharma stood and said that women NHM workers were brutally cane-charged, which is condemnable.
Meanwhile, PDP MLA Yawar Mir, BJP MLA Rajiv Jasrotia, Chenani MLA Dina Nath Bhagat and MLA Ramnagar, RS Pathania also raised different issues concerning Health Department.
Meantime, the Health Minister Bali Bhagat left the House and not even listened the queries of the MLAs over the important issues relating to his department.
