Congress, CPI-M criticises Mamata for her new announcement
Kolkata, 2 March (HS):Both the Congress and CPI-M in West Bengal today severely criticised Chief minister Mamata Banerjee,condemning her decision to send letters to every patient in state government hospital who received treatment there during the past one year. As per a notification to the state Health department from the Chief minister here today,every government hospital Superintendent would have to send individual letter to every patient who had received free treatment in the hospital during the period between 1 March 2018 and 28 February this year. Through these personal letters the government would acknowledge their decision to get admitted in government hospital and receive free treatment till they became fit. Describing such a decision to write letters to patients,as nothing but a ''mockery of democracy'' to win the public support before the coming elections,West Bengal Pradesh Congress leader Abdul Mannan said it was nothing but yet another attempt to hoodwink the public. ''We strongly oppose such a step to reach to the door step of poor people who had no other option but to bang their heads on the government hospital despite knowing their pathetic condition and the poor standard of treatment'', said Mannan . Echoing similar sentiments senior Cpi-m MLA Sujan Chakraborty said following the path of the Prime minister, Mamata had been trying to win the people through the back door before the coming elections. Claiming that in spite of facing financial crisis,the state government had launched an advertisement blitzkrieg in the local media and had been issuing full page advertisements in most of the daily papers in order to fool the people with several unfounded projects and woo them before the poll, he said and hoped that all such efforts by spending huge amount of money from the state exchequer would go in vain when the election results would come out. Issuing of letters to patients was nothing but a laughable programme,he said. Hindusthan Samachar/Ankur Bhattacharya/Pramod\ \
