The Kejriwal-led AAP government has urged people to provide rent-free rooms to set up Mohalla clinics in different parts of the city to provide free treatment for all.
In a full-page advertisement in a newspaper, the Kejriwal government requested his state people to participate in flagship project to make it a grand success.
The “Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics” which aims to provide basic health services to people living in the national capital is a dream project of Arvind Kejriwal.
The advertisement urged state residents to collaborate with the government for a ‘noble cause’ by setting up “Aam Aadmi Mohalla Clinics”. The advertisement asked people to provide their empty homes and vacant plots to the Delhi government without charging any fare for setting up the Mohalla Clinic across the state.
The Mohalla clinic requires ground floor with a minimum area of 500-700 sq feet for a period of two years.
The advertisement was “Can you provide your empty house or land to the Delhi government free of rent for setting-up a Mohalla Clinic?” “Can a group of people collectively provide a house/land free of rent in their area for setting-up a Mohalla Clinic?”
The dream health project of Mr Kejriwal had its first ‘Mohalla Clinic’ in 2015 under his government. The Kejriwal govt is aiming to set up 1000 such clinics before 2020 Delhi Assembly polls.
The advertisement also requested financially strong organisations to hire premises in some areas of the national capital and provide them to Delhi government for setting-up such clinics without charging for it.
The advertisement released by the Health and Family Welfare Department, Government of NCT of Delhi had a photo of Chief Arvind Kejriwal, stated “In case your answer is YES, then the Delhi government will set-up Mohalla Clinics in these areas for free treatment of all,”
The steps taken by the department was after CM Kejriwal warned health department officials that he would take proper action against the officials if they don’t ensure proper services under the ‘Mohalla Clinic’ project.
