Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao showered praises on former CM late YS Rajasekhar Reddy who introduced Arogya Shri Scheme in the best interest of the poor & middle class. 'Whenever I meet PM, I receive a paper from him. The first line in it will be Telangana State not joining NDA Govt's Ayushman Bhava Scheme. I had conveyed to PM that Arogya Shri implemented by YSR is far better than Ayushman Bhava and we are implementing the same scheme with few improvements. We had an argument on this matter for 2-3 times. We have to accept when somebody does a good thing. I don't mind saying YSR's Arogya Shri is a very good scheme,' he said in the Assembly.
Not just TRS Government, Even TDP Government has been implementing YSR Arogya Shri with a new name. However, The benefits were extended to the people who undergo treatment only in the AP Hospitals. YS Jaganmohan Reddy found fault with this move of the TDP Government.A
Good to see Telangana CM openly appreciating a good scheme implemented by a Former CM though he belongs to the rival party. That's really a good sign & other politicians need to take inspiration from KCR!
