After occupying conference hall of Raj Niwas for more than 7 hours and meeting Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) Anil Baijal twice, including Thursday meeting, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is hopeful that all related files will be cleared by Tuesday.
The solution has been come out after AAP ministers and MLA met Baijal on Thursday along with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Though, a press statement issued by LG office doesn’t mention any final day to clear all files.
“Secretary (Health), GNCTD gave a background of the entire project and also explained the gist of the complaints received regarding setting up of these clinics such as no transparent method to select premises for Mohalla Clinics; rent of premises higher than the market rent, premises of party workers rented, location of clinics not in synchronization with existing dispensaries, four hours for running the clinic not adequate, no proper accounting of the patients examined while deciding payment to doctors etc. Thereafter, he submitted the departmental files,” press statement from LG office says.
“Hon’ble LG assured the CM that a decision in the best interests of delivery of quality health care to the residents will be taken after suitably incorporating sufficient safeguards to ensure transparency and objectivity,” statement says.
On the other side, AAP MLA Alka Lamba thanked LG and said that issue has been sort out.
“LG has said that files related to Mohalla clinic will be cleared by Tuesday. It is the victory of Delhiites,” she said.
