Raj Niwas Press Release

Date: 
Tuesday, June 9, 2020

Certain statements have been reportedly made by the Hon’ble Dy. Chief Minister relating to SDMA meeting held today at Raj Niwas in relation to order passed by Hon’ble Lt. Governor about treating all patients in  Delhi Hospitals. 

In the meeting today, it was clarified by Hon’ble Lt. Governor that he had reversed the order of Delhi Government as it violated the constitutional rights of Equality and Right to Life which include Right to Health.  A similar directive earlier issued by GNCTD to discriminate in providing healthcare facilities to patients based on their residence was stuck down by the Hon’ble High Court of Delhi.

It is the responsibility of the State to provide universal healthcare to all patients coming to hospitals in accordance with constitutional provisions. This was explained to the Hon’ble Dy. Chief Minister in today’s SDMA meeting. It is unfortunate that any responsible government should attempt to discriminate amongst patients on grounds of residence. We are all Indians and Delhi belongs to all !

Hon’ble Lt. Governor is fully aware of the need to ramp up medical infrastructure.  In fact, from time to time several ideas and strategies have been discussed in the SDMA meeting chaired by Hon’ble Lt. Governor to augment the medical infrastructure to meet the rising requirement.  These meetings are also attended by experts from Government of India.

In today’s SDMA meeting also, ideas e.g. use of spaces like Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, Tyagraj Stadium, JLN Stadium, Pragati Maidan to make large make shift medical facilities were  discussed.  It was also decided to utilize banquet halls, marriage places, etc. to ramp up the facilities. 

In fact, in the meeting itself, all officers concerned were directed by the Hon’ble Lt. Governor to put in all efforts to make sure that the available health infrastructure is ramped up as early as possible.  Hon’ble Lt. Governor also advised the officers concerned to invoke Section 50 of Disaster Management Act, 2005 for expeditious procurement and timely setting up of required infrastructure.
