Sanjay Awasthy, a Congress MLA from Arki, today requested Health Minister Rajeev Sehjal’s resignation and a vigilance investigation into alleged irregularities in the acquisition of medications through the Arki hospital’s Rogi Kalyan Samiti.
“This is a massive swindle, and a comprehensive investigation of the purchases made by the Rogi Kalyan Sabha, Arki, would reveal various more abnormalities,” Awasthy claimed.
During the Rogi Kalyan Samiti meeting, the MLA said he saw several inconsistencies in the financial sheet.
“A purchase of Rs 28 lakh in pharmaceuticals was made at a higher rate. According to the guidelines, any purchase over Rs 1 lakh must be made through floating bids, which he claims was broken.
