Exhibiting shocking behaviour, Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh deflected questions over Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's outsider remark against Biharis, and heckled Republic TV's reporter on Tuesday. Singh, when asked about Kejriwal's remark that 'people of Bihar are utilising Delhi's medical facilities' didn't answer on the specific point, and instead acted in an intimidating manner, questioning coverage of rape case in which former BJP minister Chinmayanand has been accused.
Delhi CM and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday raised controversial remarks while addressing a gathering at the inauguration ceremony of a Trauma Centre at the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital in the national capital. Speaking about Delhi government's facilities providing free medical care to Delhiites, Arvind Kejriwal alleged the "people from outside" are coming and availing free benefits meant for the citizens of the national capital. Giving momentum to his remarks, Arvind Kejriwal stated that the government carried out a survey of a hospital on the Delhi border, which revealed that 80 percent of the patients were from outside the national capital.
"It has become difficult for people to get their treatment done in hospitals. That is why our government had ensured free treatment. Now citizens get medicines also. But the thing is there are a lot of people coming from outside to get their treatment done. We once conducted a survey of a hospital at the Delhi border and 80 per cent people were from outside Delhi. If you want to treat only people from Delhi, then these hospitals are sufficient. A person from Bihar buys a ticket worth 500 rupees and gets a operation of 5 lakh done for free in hospitals of Delhi." Arvind Kejriwal said.
