Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday requested Lt Governor Anil Baijal to send him the file on empowering heads of government hospitals to hire contractual staff. The Delhi CM alleged that so far the officials were refusing to show the file to him citing the L-G’s orders.
The development came following a meeting held by Kejriwal with all medical superintendents to review the functioning of hospitals, where it was decided to empower them to hire contractual staff till vacant posts are filled up on a regular basis.
“I understand that the proposal for the same has been sent to you (L-G) without showing it to the health minister, the finance minister or the chief minister,” Kejriwal said in a letter to Baijal.
“In the proposal, I am told that the bureaucracy has imposed such conditions that as a result, no medial superintendent would be able to practically hire anyone,” he added.
The chief minister alleged that when asked for the file, officers said the L-G had asked them not to show the file to any minister, including the chief minister.
