Prashant Kishore was one of Narendra Modi’s campaign strategists in the 2014 Lok Sabha election. He worked to get an absolute majority for the BJP.
Political strategist Prashant Kishore has once again castigated Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that instead of helping the children who lost their parents due to Corona, the Modi government is just making promises. Free education is the fundamental right of children anyway.
In fact, the day before, the Central Government has announced the PM Cares for Children Scheme for children orphaned due to Corona. Under this, such children have been announced to provide free education up to the age of 18 years and financial assistance every month.
Children should get help right now: Prashant
On this, Prashant Kishore took a dig at the post on social media and said that Modi government’s unique master stroke. This time a different method of sympathy and care was adopted for children orphaned from Corona. This is very bad behavior. The children should have been assisted now, but at the age of 18, they were promised a stepping stone. Should children get positivity from it.
Ayushman plan could not even provide people with beds and oxygen
He said that PM Cares has promised free education. Grateful to them for that, but it is already available to the children under the Constitution. Free education is the right of children. Ayushmann also included children in India, thank PMO for that too. The Ayushman scheme is meant to provide free health related services to 50 crore Indians, but the scheme could not even provide people with beds and oxygen in the hospital if needed.
– Be grateful to #PMCares for PROMISE of free education; a RIGHT guaranteed by the Constitution / RTE
– Thank @PMOIndia healthcare for ASSURANCE to be enrolled in Ayushman Bharat that supposedly covers needs of 50Cr Indians but only FAILED to provide bed/oxygen when needed (2/2)
