Expressing his displeasure, Kejriwal tweeted, "People shud remember this when they go out to vote in Delhi. Del govt constructed this mohalla clinic. BJP led MCD demolished it today (sic)."
He also shared the tweet of a senior government official who had also posted pictures of the damaged clinic.
"Shamefully criminal & blatantly illegal : North MCD demolishes a newly constructed Mohalla Clinic at Har Dayal Singh Road, Karol Bagh on a PWD Road. North MCD had no jurisdiction, no notice given & a primary health public facility destroyed for no reason," the official tweeted.
Countering the allegations, Gupta claimed that once the AAP government had also tried to set up a mohalla clinic at a park in his ward.
"We have registered a complaint against the NDMC for demolishing a mohalla clinic without prior permission from PWD. We have demanded an action in the matter," he said.
"The mohalla clinic was being constructed on the road causing problems to the locals. A no objection certificate should be sought from the Traffic Police and the municipal corporation before construction of a mohalla clinic on any road," Kapoor said.
As many as 1,000 mohalla clinics are planned to be established in the city and nearly 200 such facilities have already been built.
A typical mohalla clinic has a doctor, a midwife-cum-nurse, and an array of diagnostic services and essential medicines are provided free of cost to patients there.
