BJP MP Ravindra Rai from Jharkhand’s Kodarma constituency on Sunday landed into a controversy after he was spotted sleeping during the launch of ‘Ayushman Bharat – Pradhan Mantri Jan Aarogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY)’ here in Jharkhand. According to reports, MP Ravindra went to the launching ceremony of the PMJAY where he was seen sleeping during the speech of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Following the ceremony, the picture of MP went viral and Ravindra is still facing an adverse response on the social media platforms.
Meanwhile, the Opposition criticized BJP questioning, “When MPs themselves are sleeping during the speech then what they will teach the people about the scheme”. The AB-PMJAY scheme of Government of India is aimed at providing health assurance worth Rs. 5 lakh per year to over 10 crore families across the country.
