    Sonia Gandhi explained that Congress which is leading the government at the centre, always focused on the common man’s wellbeing and the health insurance schemes brought by the party are designed to do good to the underprivileged, particularly rural children and women.

    RGJAY project was launched by state government in July 2012 in 8 state’s 35 districts which benefited around 5 million families. Under this scheme, a premium of Rs. 333 is paid by government against a cover of Rs. 150,000 for each family. Also, treatment is provided against 972 surgeries, procedures, therapies and 121 follow-up processes. Out of 12 crore state’s population, this project intends to cover around two crore people which is sure to increase later.

    Gandhi is delighted imagining the future where women in rural areas will no longer suffer the pain of hiding their ailment because of all sorts of treatment expenses and medical bills loaded on their husbands. Urging all poor people to avail 100% advantage of this scheme and get benefited with medical treatments which are beyond the reach of common people, she personally spoke to the first 78 beneficiaries whom she met in the rally.

    “Jeevan Amrut” scheme launched by the state government was also appreciated by Gandhi wherein the needy could order for blood in case of medical emergencies and too by simply calling a toll-free number.
