In a memorandum submitted to Lt. Governor, Maken said that there are anomalies in the mohalla clinics but they are also not being run as per the established norms. There are many mohalla clinics which are established at the places where they are not useful. Maken said that many mohalla clinics are established near the already running dispensaries and instead of appointing permanent staff in these clinics the government transferring their staff to these clinics.
He has alleged and exposed the irregularities on these 104 mohalla clinics. He said that AAP party’s Delhi Government established these mohalla clinics in violation of CVC guidelines date 8th july 1999, as While taking any services or renting any accommodation, principle of L1 (Lowest one) should always be applied. Meaning thereby that in the case of opening Mohalla Clinics, no Tender was called.
He further said that General Financial rules (GFR)21 was also not followed in these clinics as it says that “While incurring expenditure from Government Exchequer, the Government should follow the “Principle of Financial propriety”. The Government should ensure that money being spent is not more than the occasion demands”. But in case of operating so called Mohalla clinics, principle of financial propriety was openly violated. Public funds have been spent more than what was required.
