Modi has failed India on health:
A FORTHCOMING study of leading medical journal The Lancet has reportedly criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for sidelining health since he came to power in May, 2014. The report has also warned of a collapse if India fails to invest in combating non-communicable diseases like diabetes and heart problems. Written by global health experts, the study, which will be published on December 11, also censures Modi for not delivering on his poll promise of universal health coverage. In an interview to a leading daily, Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of TheLancet, said, Health is an issue of national security for India, but Modi isn't taking it seriously. Since Modi has come in, health has completely vanished. India is on the edge. If Modi does not tackle health, India's economy, combined with rising population is not sustainable.
