Pramod MadhwarSpeaking to reporters here, Madhwaraj who  had earlier pretended ignorance about the plan, said that it was the cabinet which has taken the decision. He at the same time said he would oppose the decision if  it results in injustice to poor patients in any way.

Stating that it was a decision of the Health Department which was in no way connected to his department, Pramod justified himself stating that  he  does not consult other ministers as far as decisions of his ministry was concerned.
