Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party government has launched a new drive #DelhiWantsMohallaClinics. However the campaign has fallen flat on its face even before take off and has exposed the Arvind Kejriwal government.
The condition of already opened Mohalla Clinics in Delhi says a lot.
Earlier this year Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party government of Delhi inaugurated a Mohalla Clinic in Shahheen Bagh locality of Okhla. Hard to believe but the clinic which is supposed to take care of the health of the people of the area, was built in the middle of a a garbage dump!
As you can see in the picture, there is garbage strewn all around the clinic. How all this garbage is supposed to help improve the health of the people, Kejriwal government should explain.
When CM's office as well as Delhi's health minister Satyendra Jain's office was contacted in this regard, both refused to talk about the matter.
In fact there are two mohalla clinis in Shaheen Bagh area which have been built on top of garbage dumps.
Recently a doctor appointed at one of these clinics went on 15 days' leave refusing to attend the clinic built atop garbage dump.
Then there is the issue of quality of treatment and tests done at these clinics. There have been many incidents of wrong test results provided at these clinics leading to wrong diagnosis and treatment.
It is ironic that Kejriwal's AAP was contesting upcoming MCD elections in Delhi promising that if they come to power they will clean Delhi. When Delhi government is not able to keep its own project 'Mohalla Clinic' clean, how can anyone believe in their promise of cleaning Delhi?
Clearly people of Delhi saw through their lies and voted against AAP.
