Jalandhar: Demanding appointment of doctors atthe bus stations and all the government buses, the Punjab Congress today said if voted to power, the party will provide the facility for free.
“The state government must appoint medical staff or a doctor in each government bus. The govt collects the full fare from the public, but who will care about their health?” Avtar Henry, Vice-President, Punjab Congress asked.
“There is a lack of quality hospitals and clinics in the state and yet this shameless government is sending doctors to each and every trains and buses for ‘teerthdarshan’ (religious tours) for vote bank,” he said.
Henry’s response came when he was asked to comment on state government’s initiative where government-run buses are utilised for free religious tours. Under this initiative, a doctor is also travelling along with the pilgrims in buses/trains.
Earlier, BJP leader Laxmikanta Chawla too criticised the government and wrote a letter to the chief minister Prakash Singh Badal in this regard.
