Amaravati (Andhra Pradesh): YSR Congress Party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday announced Universal Healthcare Card scheme to provide free healthcare access to poor and middle-class people.

The Universal Health Card scheme will be personally monitored by Jagan Reddy.
Simultaneous elections will be held in Andhra Pradesh for 25 Lok Sabha seats and 175 Assembly seats. The results will be declared on May 23.
