The confrontation between the Delhi BJP, revoked and going on a collision course with the government thinking of the good of patients and their aggrieved families.
The Delhi BJP chief Tiwari said that when the fake degree of the AAP government was revealed, the CM Delhi has not resigned neither any action initiated against him for his suspension then why should the license of the MAX hospital got cancelled when the erring doctors have been terminated, already. Similarly, the Delhi Medical council, threatening to go on strike asked the same question that for the wrong doings of the erring docters why have the current patients and the hospital has been made to suffer.
While the confrontation between the Chief minister, Delhi BJP chief and the Delhi Medical Council is on, the people of Delhi are asking what about the exploitative attitude of the private hospital managements who have been charging exorbitantly from patients and minting excessive profits unjustifiably? What about the case of Adya an eight year old girl who died of Dengue and her father was charged a sum of whopping 18 lacs and several other such cases?
It is therefore mandatory that a strong deterrent against these hospitals is the need of the hour and what the Kejriwal government has done in respect of the MAX hospital, Shalimar Bagh has been and is being appreciated and lauded all around. The private hospitals have no right what so ever to hold the poor, under privileged and economically deprived patients at ransom and insult the noble profession.
India is a democratic country and everyone has the right for medical treatment at reasonable costs but these private hospitals have in fact become the privilage of the few allfuents and rich and patients of middle class and the lowest ebb of the society are being denied the priviledge of even 25% free or concessional treatments as facilitated by the honourable apex court of India. This is shameful and fully uncalled for.
