Arpita Ghosh asks Supplementary Question on spreading awareness about Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana

Arpita Ghosh asks Supplementary Question on spreading awareness about Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana

Thank you, Madam. I would like to use this opportunity to highlight that in my State West Bengal, our CM Mamata Banerjee has already started fair price medicine shops. Madam, my question to the Hon. Minister is by when would the mandated 3,000 fair price shops be opened by the Central Government?

My second question is whether the Govt is contemplating to form any committee to involve MPs in spreading awareness. People must be aware for the benefits of the scheme. Is the Minister thinking anything on these lines?
