Uttar Pradesh:

Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) leader Mayawati asked of what use was the “double-engine” Bharatiya Janata Party government? She was responding to the latest NITI Aayog’s Health Index in which Uttar Pradesh ranks the last.

“The NITI Aayog’s report is embarrassing for the government,” Mayawati tweeted. “So what use is such a double-engine BJP government at the Centre and the state? What use is such development if the lives of crores of people are total hell?”

The report ranks Kerala in the top followed by Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. While Bihar and UP have performed the worst in terms of health facilities.

Meanwhile, state Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said the report was of 2017 and the BJP had just come to power that year, The Hindu reported.

“Some things take time to improve,” Singh said. “A mango tree gives mangoes four years after it is planted,” he said.
