In Uttarakhand, for the first time in four and a half years, the state got a separate health minister. During the Corona period, the responsibility of the very important health department was given to Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat. Now there is talk of setting up 600 health camps in 4 months before the elections. So the question is whether an attempt is being made to do politics on the pretext of health?
In Uttarakhand, thousands of families have been hit by Kovid in 16 months. Then a separate health minister was not found and now the new health minister has to improve health in a short time and also practice politics. Therefore, in the coming months, you can meet your MLAs at the hospital, medical camp and vaccination center. Health Minister Dr. Dhan Singh Rawat says that from September to December, 600 medical camps will be organized in the entire state, where the duty of MLAs will be taken. At the same time, along with going to 100 vaccination centers and arrangements for cleanliness and medicine in 5 hospitals, the MLA will also see.
The condition of the health system in Uttarakhand is not hidden from anyone. The state remained at number two in terms of death from Corona. In such a situation, what will improve from the medical camp, only time will tell. However, Congress is calling it an election camp.
What is the challenge before the Health Minister
The new health minister will take time to understand the department. The danger of the third wave of Kovid is hovering over the head. In such a situation, the election of 2022 will tell how successful the effort to fix health and politics will be from the medical camp.
Recently, after the resignation of Tirath Singh Rawat, Dhan Singh Rawat, who was one of the possible faces of Uttarakhand CM, has got a lot of stature in the Dhami cabinet as the Minister of Health and Medical Education. According to the notification, Rawat also has all those departments, which were with him during the time of the Tirath government.
