Ashok Agarwal, member of the Economically Weaker Section’s Monitoring Committee, has written to the Delhi Health Department to intervene in the matter.
Mr. Agarwal said: “Bittu is an in-patient at the hospital and has liver, kidney, and HIV problems. He has an old widowed mother, who works as a maid and hardly earns Rs. 3,000 a month – the only income for the family. He has two daughters aged six and seven.”
He alleged: “The hospital is not providing the prescribed medicines and his mother has been asked to purchase it from the market, which is not at all possible.”
