The Petitions Committee of the Delhi Assembly has advised that actions be taken against Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar, Lieutenant Governor (L-G) V.K. Saxena, and other officials in connection with issues concerning the AAP government’s initiatives such as old-age pensions, Mohalla Clinics, and the removal of data entry operators from government hospitals.

The committee’s report highlights various concerns. Regarding the disbursement of old-age pensions, Director of Social Welfare Department Pooja Joshi is accused of intentionally causing delays, while District Social Welfare Officer of Lajpat Nagar, Vikas Pandey, is noted for misleading conduct. It is further alleged that Chief Secretary’s actions, influenced by the L-G, led to intimidation of several officers.

The committee has urged the President and the Ministry of Home Affairs to review the report’s findings and take appropriate measures against the Chief Secretary and the L-G. This report was also presented during a special session of the Delhi Assembly.

In the case of Mohalla Clinics, a petitioner named Dharmender Kumar from Begampur raised concerns about the absence of medicines, delayed payment to workers and doctors, and deteriorating conditions. The committee recommends stringent actions against the Secretary (Health Department) and Principal Secretary (Finance Department) for causing deliberate delays in processing files and releasing funds for AAMC services and doctor remunerations.

Similarly, a petitioner named Rahul from Trilokpuri addressed the removal of data entry operators, leading the committee to suggest action against the L-G, Chief Secretary, and others in this matter as well.
