The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of trying to sell off hospitals and medical institutes which come under the domain of the municipal corporations in Delhi (MCD). The BJP said the charge was a ploy to “mislead” people.

“After pushing the MCDs to bankruptcy, the BJP-led north MCD now plans to sell 10 hospitals and medical colleges. The BJP is preparing to sell all of MCD’s assets at throwaway prices...,” said AAP’s spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj during a press conference at the party office in Delhi.

Delhi BJP spokesperson Praveen Shankar Kapoor said: “The political leadership of North MCD has no intent to handover municipal health services to the Centre or Delhi government... The standing committee agenda referred to by Bhardwaj has been prepared by the bureaucratic wing of North MCD on the commissioner’s direction.”
