Even as Delhi government boasts of Mohalla clinics, BJP leader and former Delhi MLA Kapil Mishra has claimed that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and other Delhi ministers spent over Rs 50 lakh of tax money in private hospitals in Delhi for treatment.

Taking to Twitter, Mishra said that Kejriwal, Sisodia and other ministers blew up Rs 50 lakh of public money in the treatment of themselves and their family members in private hospitals. While Delhi residents have to go to Mohalla clinics, if anyone even sneezes in Kejriwal or his ministers’ family, they spend lakhs of Delhi’s money. He said that he got the information from RTI. In a video message he later posted, Mishra alleged Kejriwal and other Delhi ministers of going abroad for treatment instead of going to Mohalla Clinics.

Mishra said, “When it comes to treatment of commoners, Kejriwal asks them to go to Mohalla Clinics or government hospitals. Crores are spent on advertisements to say that we (Delhi government) is providing the best health facilities. If the health facilities are that great, why don’t you send your own kids or family members to Mohalla Clinics? Why don’t you send them to Delhi government hospitals? Over Rs 13 lakh were spent on treatment of Arvind Kejriwal and his family members outside Delhi. Same is with Manish Sisodia. Health Minister Satyender Jain himself sends his family outside of Delhi on government expense for treatment. In last five years, over Rs 50 lakh of public money was spent on the family members of Delhi ministers. This information is obtained from RTI. This means that you know the truth of your Mohalla Clinic and the health facilities.”

“The Mohalla Clinics on whose advertisements you are spending crores, you are not sending your own children there because you know the truth. That neither the treatment is good nor medicines. This is open loot of public money. This politics is about using public money as if it is their private property. This exposes the so-called health model of Kejriwal government,” he said.
