Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi on Monday claimed that free medical treatment of up to Rs 10 lakh would be provided to people if her party is voted to power. While flagging off her party's 'Pratigya Yatras' from Barabanki on Saturday, Priyanka put forth seven promises, including loan waiver for farmers and jobs to 20 lakh people. Other promises include the purchase of wheat and paddy at Rs 2,500 per quintal and Rs 400 per quintal for sugarcane.
"Everyone saw the dilapidated condition of the health system of UP due to government neglect during the Corona period and now during the spread of fever. For ensuring good and cheap treatment, with the consent of the manifesto committee, the UP Congress has decided that if voted to power, our government will provide up to ₹ 10 lakh for treatment of any disease," Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
The party has also promised that they would halve the electricity bill of everyone and allot a sum of Rs 25,000 to families who faced a financial crunch amidst the pandemic.
The party has also decided to give 40 per cent tickets to women in elections, smartphone to class 12 pass girls, and e-scooters to graduate girls. The assembly polls are scheduled to be conducted early next year.
