AAP, BJP trade barbs over setting up more mohalla clinics
The AAP and the BJP on Thursday traded charges in the Delhi Assembly over the issue of delay in setting up more mohalla clinics, with the ruling party accusing BJP of creating hurdles in implementation of the health care project.
Health Minister Satyendar Jain told the House that the file on mohalla clinics is pending with the LG's office for clearance, which led to heated arguments between the two parties. AAP MLAs Rajesh Gupta and Ritu Raj sought to know why the LG's nod is required "in everything" including for setting up mohalla clinics.
However, BJP MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa alleged that due to AAP government's "failure", the project had not taken off with full strength.
