Kejriwal criticises LG for removing DGHS

New Delhi, Oct 1 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday criticised Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung for removing Director General – Health Services (DGHS) of ‘Mohalla Clinic’ project from his post alleging ‘dirty politics’.

“This is quite sad. All efficient and honest officers are being marked and removed systematically. Dirty politics,” Kejriwal tweeted.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convenor’s remarks came a day after Jung stripped senior officer Tarun Seem of his charge as the DGHS.

Seem took over as the DGHS in October last year. He was behind the success of the Delhi government’s ambitious Mohalla Clinic project.

Seem was relieved of his charge on Friday.
