Health Minister gave this statement
Health Minister TS Singhdeo says that I am not aware of the government’s decision to give grants for hospitals in rural areas. There was no discussion on this issue with me. I am strongly against that government money should be given in private hands and they should take money from people and treat them. The Health Minister said that it is not appropriate to give grants to the private sector at the time when we should increase our resources. Will the private hospitalists go to Sukma with a grant from the government and treat the people? Will any specialist go to Silger to provide his services? Raipur is not left out of these people.
Also expressed displeasure over PPP mode
According to the information, TS Singhdev also opposed the PPP mode. He said that the firm putting resources in PPP mode contracts and withdraws its money in a year-two years. The people of the private sector take advantage of the government’s land, government buildings and government resources and the common people do not get anything.

Significantly, the state government had issued a release in this regard on June 26. In this, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel had instructed to take cooperation of private sector also to increase health facilities in rural areas.

Grants will also be given by the state government to the private sectors for building hospitals especially in rural areas. The Chief Minister directed the Industries Department to prepare its action plan in 10 days.
