Congress Delegation Meets LG, Demands CBI Probe into AAP’s Mohalla Clinics

New Delhi: A delegation of Delhi Congress unit on Friday met Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and demanded a CBI inquiry into the alleged “financial irregularities and illegalities” in the Mohalla clinics run by the AAP government.

The delegation led by Delhi Congress unit chief Ajay Maken apprised the LG about the “anomalies” in the Mohalla clinics and demanded a CBI enquiry into it, said a party statement.

“The AAP government extended pecuniary advantage to members and office bearers of the party by paying more than the prevailing market rent to them whose premises were used for opening Mohalla clinics,” Maken alleged.

The memorandum submitted to Jung also said that the Mohalla clinics “lacked basic health facilities” and that established health guidelines were being “violated” there.

Delhi Congress had on Thursday released its report on the Mohalla clinics, accusing the government of “ad-hocism” in running them.
