CM slams Manoj Tiwari for 'standing by Max Hospital'

NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday slammed Delhi BJP and its president Manoj Tiwari for standing by the Max Hospital, after the Delhi government ordered cancellation of its license.
Kejriwal said that the hospital is a repeated offender of negligence towards people and the decision of cancelling the license is based on that.
"It is painful to see how Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari is standing in the support of Max Hospital, instead of standing for the interest of the people," the Chief Minister said, adding that the government is not against any doctor or any private hospital.
"We respect doctors, but negligence is a crime. If any hospital authority does that, we will be forced to take up such stern action," he said.
The CM also said that the government needs private hospitals, "but in case of criminal negligence or open looting of patients," the government will not remain silent.
"We could have taken money from the hospital and allow them to work. But we will not do such works ever," Kejriwal added.
Listing a series of violations, the Delhi government on Friday had cancelled the licence of Max Super Speciality Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, almost 10 days after a baby declared dead by the hospital was found to be alive.
