New Delhi [India], May 27 (ANI): Sacked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Kapil Mishra on Saturday made yet another attack on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of Rs. 300 crore worth scam in the health care department of the state. "Delhi government gave the largest allocation in budget to health and now the government doesn't even have basic medicines for people," Mishra said in a presser here. "In this scam, first the purchasing power of hospitals was curbed and Central Procurement Agency (CPA) was formed. Then the medicines were bought in advance for which the hospitals didn't have requirement or space to keep. Now when the medicines are actually required, neither the government nor the hospitals have the medicines." He added that there is also discrepancy in the prices of hundred ambulances that were bought, saying the actual cost of an ambulance is Rs.11 lakh but the government bills show that these ambulances were bought for Rs. 23 lakh. Mishra also claimed that many junior doctors were promoted superseding many seniors, adding that there is an attempt to divert the blame from Delhi Health Minister and Health Secretary to Chief Secretary. Mishra informed that he will go and file First Information Report (FIR) on the basis of the evidences and will take all these evidences to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal. Following is the list of accusations laid by Mishra against Arvind Kejriwal so far: May 19: Mishra claimed AAP is involved in 'Hawala' and foreign funding May 14: Mishra accused AAP for misleading the Election Commission and Income Tax department.
