The order of the Goa Bench of Bombay High Court regarding the Asilo hospital rebounded in the assembly resulting in the adjournment of the house following noisy and uproarious scene.
The Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led by Manohar Parrikar amply supported by former Finance Minister Dayanand Narvekar floored Health Minister Vishwajit Rane with a barrage of questions indicating wrong doing in the entire episode.
The Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model came in for severe criticism as the legislators exposed not only wrong doings but also mollified intensions in handing over the hospital to the private party.
It was pointed out that the request for quotation (RFQ) floated much earlier at the same terms recommended by the consultant who was appointed subsequently paying a high fee.
Further, the legislators pointed out that the bids for RFQ did not offer any speciality services but offers the same services currently available at Asilo hospital.
Turning the privatization plan to be a total fraud, all the BJP MLAs along with Dayanand Narvekar rushed to the well of the House shouting slogans against Vishwajit Rane.
Health minister’s father Pratapsingh Rane who was in the chair promptly adjourned the house till 2.30 p.m.
