Tribune News Service  Chandigarh, June 19 Former Union Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal has opposed the move of the UT Administration to outsource government dispensaries on public-private partnership mode by engaging an NGO for the purpose. In a letter to UT Administrator VP Singh Badnore, Bansal said education and health were primary government responsibilities while private sector was allowed in these areas only as a supplementary channel. “If an NGO wishes to provide such services, the right course will not be to handover any government facility, but to facilitate it in starting a new one by offering land at concessional rates, subject to conditions that may be laid down,” said Bansal.
