Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday said his party is considering inclusion of a Right to Healthcare Act promise in its manifesto for the ensuing Lok Sabha election to guarantee minimum healthcare to all.

Mr Gandhi also criticised the Ayushman Bharat flagship health scheme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government and termed the programme as a handout to 15-20 select businessmen of the country.

He was interacting with medical professionals during the concluding session of the two day national convention on Health for all organised by an NGO.
