Odisha Assembly Members Urge Government to Increase Health Insurance Coverage for Journalists

Odisha Assembly Members Urge Government to Increase Health Insurance Coverage for Journalists

Bhubaneswar: Cutting across party lines, members of Odisha Assembly on Friday urged the State Government to increase the health insurance coverage for working journalists from the existing Rs 2 lakh to Rs 5 lakh.

Besides it, the MLAs also unanimously insisted the Government to implement journalist pension scheme and protection to working journalists.
Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra today raised the issue of insurance coverage during Zero Hour in the Assembly.

He said that the working journalists in a memorandum to Chief Minister have requested to increase the health insurance coverage from Rs two lakh to Rs 5 lakh.

Health coverage for the former members of the Assembly has been increased to Rs 5 lakh. Since the journalists are an important part and parcel of the Assembly and democracy, they should also get the same benefit as far as the health insurance is covered, Mishra said.

The legislators of ruling Biju Janata Dal and opposition BJP also extended their supports to the demands of the journalists.
