"Right to Health" as a Fundamental Right of every citizen of India

It is often very painful to hear that a person suffering from a disease died just because he could not afford treatment of his ailment. In a recent scenario a couple from Delhi committed suicide just because hospitals of Delhi denied admission of their kid who was suffering from Dengue and succumb to death. In another story a person carried his dead wife on his shoulders for hours until media media spotted it. These are the stories which make my heart bleed. There are thousand off cases happening across India on daily basis but yes everyone is not lucky to be spotted by media. In present era the kind of life style we live, it is inevitable to avoid diseases like heart attack, cancer of various kinds, Liver failure, kidney failure and worse is cost of treatments of these diseases has gone so high that a person prefers death rather than medical treatment as cost of the treatment devastate the entire financial condition. Now imagine a scenario if our constitution confers us "Right to Medical Treatment", it becomes government's responsibility to ensure proper treatment of every citizen of India. Now kids would not die of birth diseases, people would not have to shed their savings of entire life for a small heart disease, hospitals (Private or government) have to admit patients irrespective of the depth of their pocket. HIV patients would receive their costly medicine free of cost.  This is not an utopian imagination, in many European this formula is working. Now it is the high time that government must bring constitutional amendment bill and introduce "Right to heath" as the fundamental right. Only we "The people of India can make it happen". 

Jai Hind !!
