New Delhi: Delhi Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain has ordered an inquiry for vacation and sealing of Rajan Babu TB Hospital after it emerged that the building might collapse any time.
AAP MLA Atishi had made a surprise visit to the north MCD-run hospital and her party live-streamed it on social media to show that patients are being treated at a dilapidated block on the premises, even as the civic body has declared it ”dangerous”.
Later, Leader of Opposition in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) Vikas Goel, who accompanied Atishi on the visit, filed a complaint at the Mukherjee Nagar police station.
On Saturday, Jain ordered an immediate inquiry.
