Gehlot said his erstwhile government had studied a similar scheme in Andhra Pradesh and found large scale corruption.
"There was a scheme similar to Bhamashah in Andhra Pradesh and there was large scale corruption in it. It was not known who was getting treatment at what level and where," he told reporters at the airport here.
"The (BJP) government brought the Bhamashah scheme. Crores of rupees were spent on Bhamashah cards and that is a matter of investigation. When Aadhaar cards were there already, then why the Bhamashah cards were made," he asked.
Gehlot said chief minister Vasundhara Raje's decisions were unfortunate and her tenure would be remembered for bad governance and as that of an inefficient government.
