It may protect insurance firms and private healthcare outfits, but not the common man’s health.

Several by-elections are going to be held in Bihar and UP on March 11. In Bihar, by-polls for Araria Lok Sabha and the Jerhaanabad and Bhabua Vidhan Sabha seats will be held on March 11.

In Bihar, Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) has sprung a big surprise by deciding to stay away from the by-polls. What is more, a JD(U) MLA has resigned from Nitish’s party and joined Kumar’s arch rival Lalu Prasad’s RJD to content the Araria seat, much to the embarrassment of Nitish.
