  • | Friday | 19th April, 2024

The Delhi Minister and senior AAP leader Saurabh Bhardwaj on Wednesday alleged that the Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar and Health Secretary Dr SB Deepak Kumar blatantly misled both the Government and the Legislative Assembly regarding the availability of medicines. The Health Minister asserted that during the Legislative Assembly discussion, numerous MLAs vehemently refuted the false claims made by Kumar regarding the availability of medicines The Chief Secretary was asked to ensure supply of medicines, while he is trying to take shelter of Rules of Business of Delhi Legislative Assembly. He could have spent those efforts in working for the people of Delhi, Bhardwaj said. Taking potshots at Kumar, he said that instead of looking for new frivolous excuses every time, the Chief Secretary should do positive work as directed by the government. Bhardwaj said, As an afterthought, he made a frivolous excuse that all routine files of departments are not routed through Chief Secretary so he cannot supervise the availability of medicines & consumables. The Minister mandated that specific directions to Kumar regarding availability of medicines need to be compiled without any excuses. Historically, routine files of departments were never routed through Chief Secretary during the tenure of earlier Chief Secretaries from the tenure of SK Srivastava to Vijay Dev.
