Punish those involved in J&K employees’ health insurance dubious deal: CPI (M)
Srinagar, October 26: Governor Satya Pal Malik’s decision to scrap J&K employees’ health insurance contract with the Reliance General Insurance Company vindicates our stand that the scheme had been rolled out to benefit a particular company. On October 3, we had raised this issue through press and we welcome that the Governor has taken a timely decision to scrap the deal.
In a statement issued here, Tarigami said: “More needs to be done by punishing those involved in this dubious deal. Heads must roll and people should come to know who were the actors behind this scam. The money involved in the scheme was too big to have been a straight forward mistake. The contract had been allotted to the same company which is involved in a controversy over Rs 59000-crore Rafale deal related to procurement of fighter jets by India.”
He further said that the Government needs to clarify how the employees would be refunded the amount that was deducted from their salaries as first installment for the scheme.
