Delhi govt mohalla clinics have become “maut ka clinic”-Adesh Gupta

New Delhi, 10 January. The State BJP President Shri Adesh Gupta while charging doctors of state government mohalla clinics once again with laxity, said the Kejriwal government’s health care system is in a shambles. The central government has banned use of dextromethorphan for children less than four years of age. But mohalla clinics doctors gave this medicine to yet another innocent child thereby making him fight between life and death. These clinics have become joint of corruption and death. We demand a judicial probe into these increasing incidents and resignation of state health minister Satyendra Jain, he asked.

Addressing a news conference here today, he said the problems being faced by children and innocents due to laxity and carelessness on part of these doctors have yet again exposed reality of so called world class health care system of Delhi and its really saddening. The clinics about which not only here but Kejriwal has publicised about in abroad as well have in fact become publicity centre for Kejriwal, he remarked, adding what these clinics need is better health care system rather than posters. What is needed is competent doctors, basic facilities and medicines which have not expired. Present at the dais with him  today were state media head Shri Naveen Kumar Jindal, co head Smt  Mamta Kale and state doctor’s cell co incharge Dr Anil Goel.

Shri Adesh Gupta said in past seven years the Kejriwal government spent Rs 57000 crore on healthcare system itself and of it Rs 1500 crore were spent initially  on mohalla clinics  alone.  But despite that, they are in a pitiable condition. If only this amount had been spent on city hospitals the picture of Delhi’s health care system would have been altogether different. He said the central government’s DGHS on December 7 in a letter to Delhi DGHS wrote to issue direction to all mohalla clinics and dispensaries to not to prescribe this dextromethorphan syrup to children below four years. There is only corruption and scam in all departments of state government.  Delhi’s tax payers money is being misused and Kejriwal government must answer for that, he asserted.
