Delhi LG overrules AAP govt’s orders, says ‘no non-resident should be denied medical treatment’

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Monday overruled AAP Arvind Kejriwal government’s decision to restrict people from other states from getting COVID-19 treatment at Delhi government-run hospitals. Invoking powers as the Chairperson of Delhi Disaster Management Authority, the Delhi LG ordered that no person should be denied treatment on the ground of not being a resident of Delhi. Overruling another controversial order, Baijal said that the asymptomatic too should be examined. The move may trigger a confrontation between the AAP dispensation and the LG office.
