Manoj Tiwari seeks probe into death of child treated at polyclinic

Statesman News Service | New Delhi |

Delhi BJP president Manoj Tiwari has demanded a probe into death of a child who allegedly suffered from adverse reaction after being given some medicines at an Aam Aadmi Mohalla Polyclinic in Sector 18 Rohini.

Tiwari said that appropriate compensation be granted to the bereaved family and a probe be ordered into the mohalla polyclinic’s working. He remarked, ” right since the time Arvind Kejriwal Government floated Aam Aadmi Mohalla Polyclinic concept the BJP has maintained that these clinics are being used by Kejriwal Government just to extend financial benefits to its volunteers. These polyclinics are just dirty politics centres of Kejriwal government.”

He further alleged that it had constantly come out through media reports that in most of the polyclinics there were no doctors or trained paramedical staff. Most of these polyclinics were being run by AAP volunteers posted there as assistants. There have been reports that expired medicines were dispensed from those clinics.

” In view of the information available we have reason to believe that the child was a victim of wrong diagnosis or medicine given at the olyclinic. It needs to be probed whether doctor was deployed at the polyclinic on the day the possible wrong  treatment happened and for this CCTV needs to be checked.”  said BJP Delhi unit chief.
