New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said the people will not be denied medicines and consumables at government hospitals since there will be no shortage of them from Feburary 1.
"When poor people visit government hospitals, they don't get all the medicines. But from Feburary 1, no patient will be told that the medicines are out of stock," he said here, adding a helpline would be launched so that people can report the shortage of medicines at government hospitals.
He stressed health and education would be the top two priorities of his government in 2016.
Shortage of medicines, which figure in the list of essential drugs, at government hospitals has been a common complaint in the capital.
The Delhi government runs 38 hospitals.
