Kejriwal urged to identify land for 850 Mohalla Clinics

New Delhi, June 2: The Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday directed Chief Secretary M.M. Kutty to urgently help identify land for setting up 850 Mohalla Clinics.

In a letter to Kutty, Kejriwal said the Delhi government was committed to building 1,000 Mohalla Clinics of which 150 had been constructed so far.

Kejriwal said the Health Secretary has informed him that the Health Department was "not getting land" to construct the remaining 850 Mohalla Clinics.

"Chief Secretary is directed to coordinate with all the departments, who own land (like education, DJB, DUSIB, PWD) and these 850 pieces of land, equally distributed all over Delhi, should be identified urgently to construct Mohalla Clinics," said Kejriwal.

"Chief Secretary should identify these plots of land by June 30," he added.

Mohalla Clinic is the Delhi government's flagship scheme, which has been praised by several countries across the globe.
