Congress plans to bring right to health care in Lok Sabha manifesto: Rahul


Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party’s manifesto for the Lok Sabha polls would include a right to health care. The Congress said it was committed to increase investment in health care infrastructure to make public hospitals the first choice for patients.

Over the past month, Gandhi has announced key manifesto promises. These have included a minimum income guarantee to all poor, or NYAY, a reformed goods and services tax (GST), 33 per cent reservation for women in central government jobs, and affordable housing for people living in urban slums.
