At a time when the opposition is targetting Narendra Modi government at the center alleging that it had facilitated Anil Ambani’s Reliance Group to be part of Rafale deal with French government and also Ani’s group is on a notice-serving spree to media houses over their coverage of shoddy Rafale jet deal, Jammu and Kashmir Governor Satya Pal Malik has given a shock to him.
He has announced scrapping of controversial Group Medical Insurance Policy for government employees with Anil Ambani’s Reliance General Insurance Company(RGIC).
The governor said “it was full of frauds”, and pertinently, the finance department has held responsible for erroneous implementation of the policy. He added that the entire process was carried out in secrecy and even the tenders were opened on a holiday to suit a particular company.
Incidentally, the proposed insurance contract aimed at covering around 400,000 government employees and pensioners was allotted by Malik’s administration to RGIC soon after he took over as Governor of the state.
The total volume of the policy is likely be to run into Rs 20,000 crore to Rs 25,000 crore. Formal orders to this effect will be issued in the next two days. Finding fault with the previous government in the state in this regard, the Governor said that the entire process was carried out hurriedly to a point that the tenders were opened on a holiday to suit a company.
