Chitrangda About Ayushman Bharat Scheme.

On Tuesday evening, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr. Harsh Varshan tweeted a video in which Chitrangda Singh spreads the word on Ayushman Bharat Scheme. The government's Ayushman Bharat Scheme is providing free testing kits and treatment for COVID-19 to over 50 crore poor people in India. Bollywood actress Chitrangda Singh has taken the initiative to spread the message. 

The actress speaks in Hindi in the video. She says, "We get a lot of takes to make a shot perfect while shooting films, but this coronavirus pandemic will not give you a second chance. One mistake can make us our families and neighbors pay the price. Please don't step out of your homes unless it is extremely necessary."

In such difficult times, we need to stand by our poor brothers and sisters who are extremely vulnerable. Also, people who serve us throughout the year -- such as our watchmen, vegetable vendors, washermen, cooks, and drivers -- we must help them," she added.

"Under the government's Ayushman Swasthya Yojana, over 50 crore poor people get free treatment up to Rs 5 lakh every year. Under this scheme, testing and treatment for COVID 19 will be completely free," said the actress.

Sharing her video, the minister wrote: "Thank you @IChitrangda ji! #COVID__19 treatment is free under #AyushmanBharat for its 50 crore beneficiaries! I request @ayushmannk @TheShilpaShetty @Neenagupta001 to #PassItForward & help us #SaveLives".

Chitrangda Singh also shared the video on her Twitter feed and wrote: "With you in all the efforts #SpreadTheWord #NotTheVirus. Protection Status
