Hyderabad, Aug 3 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today alleged that the Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was creating obstacles in the implementation of the Aarogya Sree Health Insurance schemes in the state.

Talking to newspersons here, he said the scheme would provide quality health care for the poor people.

Denying the Opposition charge that the scheme was benefiting the corporate hospitals, Dr Reddy said the government was providing quality health for two-crore families in the state.

The Chief Minister said the Aarogya Sree trust was concentrating on all types of medical checkups for the people.

He said the trust would conduct mega health camps in all the district headquarters and 40 to 50 network hospitals would take part in the camps.

The Government had spent nearly Rs 220 crore for the scheme. It had conducted 4,000 free medical health camps from 2007, Dr Reddy added.

He also alleged that the previous TDP regime in the state had not implemented any scheme for the poor.
