Niti Aayog must stop plan to privatise public health

In late November 2019 Khwahish Warsi, a daily wage earner who makes his living by making and selling 'dholaks', the Indian percussion instrument, who did not have one pelvic joint, met with a major accident and suffered major fracture in both his legs. He was taken to the trauma centre of the King George's Medical University (KGMU) in Lucknow, India. Because of major rush here he could not be admitted for two days and was ‘advised’ to seek treatment in private hospital. That is how he landed at a private hospital in the city. Even after he had borrowed Rs. 1.1 Lakhs (around US$ 1500) from his village in Barabanki he could not muster half the amount the hospital was asking to go ahead and perform the surgery which included putting iron rods in his legs. Had it not been for some charitable individuals he would not have been able to make all hospital payments. But everyone may not be as lucky.
