New Delhi: Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Wednesday warned the medical superintendent of the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital over his controversial remark on a nurses’ room in the hospital.

According to hospital sources, Yogesh Sarin, who was appointed the medical superintendent a few weeks ago, termed the nurses’ room as “G.B. Road” – a red-light district in Delhi.

The remark was made after an altercation broke out between a group of nurses and the medical superintendent over a room, which Sarin wanted the nurses to vacate.

A team of nurses met Jain and urged him to take strict action against the medical superintendent.

“The minister has spoken to the medical superintendent and has warned him not to use such language. He has been told that if he ever repeats this, it may lead to his suspension,” an official at Jain’s office told IANS.

Asked if the minister would initiate action against the medical superintendent, the official said: “The minister met the nurses and told them there was no point dragging the issue as he had spoken to the medical superintendent.”

Meanwhile, the medical superintendent said the problems occurred while the nurses approached him over some of his decisions regarding reforms in the hospital and to appoint a nursing superintendent which was lying vacant for years.

“I understand that certain unscrupulous people tried to flare up the environment by mentioning lies and misquoting some of my statements out of the context,” Sarin said in a statement.

“Some nurses agitated, shouted slogans, disrupted work for sometime around lunch time and later approached the health minister… The baseless allegation of my having made derogatory remarks about on the ex-matron was also expunged.” (IANS)

The department reportedly recovered some documents relating to a few transactions being made by at least three firms which had a link to Jain.

However, Jain said it was a “re-assessment” of an old case. He also added,”This is not an investigation, it is just a re-assessment. I have been called as a witness. In the past, I had invested in these companies which are being re-assessed,” he told the reporters.

The AAP leader went on to say, “The Delhi Chief Minister will make a big expose in the Delhi Assembly two days later. I dare the TV channels to air it,” he said.

Go Solar: The new mantra

Opting for renewable energy is fast becoming the new trend. Every other household is finally seeing the benefits of solar energy: a source of electricity that is renewable, off-the-grid, clean, distributed and most importantly, affordable.

India can be most benefited from this renewable energy as more than half of the population still lives in rural areas where the grid cannot reach. These remote areas have therefore never seen electricity. They are lurking in the darkness as the world progresses each day. Now, India can finally move out of the darkness and into light, with at least 55 cities being developed as solar cities.

Taking a step towards solarising India, on Thursday, Delhi Power Minister Satyendra Jain released a Delhi Solar Energy Policy 2015 draft. This Policy aims at generating 1,000 MW of solar power in the next five years. This will help in resolving power cut worries quite easily.

At an event at the secretariat, Satyendra Jain remarked, “To promote solar energy, solar panels will be installed on the roof-tops of every government building and we’ll start with the Delhi Secretariat.”

The minister also revealed that a tender for 5MW solar power generation has been floated. “We have a target to generate 1,000 MW of solar power in the next five years and 2,000 MW by 2025,” he said.

He further added, “This solar policy will promote a rapid growth of solar power, especially from the roof-top source, via a combination of generation targets, regulations, mandate and incentives. This will also promote net-metering and grid connectivity for all solar plants.”

If all goes well, very soon, every household in Delhi will not only have access to an uninterrupted power supply but also save on the electricity bills.

Earlier, the Rajasthan government had approved of an investment of Rs. 1.56 lakh crore in the solar power sector. Sighting the benefits of solar power, the world’s first 12 MW solar power plant was inaugurated by Kerala’s chief minister at the Kochi airport. No wonder the newest metro line added to Delhi metro is NCR’s first solar equipped metro line.

Overseas, China too has already started building its largest solar plant to meet its voluptuous power needs. That’s not all. The enormous usage of this clean, green energy will leave you astonished; the first solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse 2, made its first successful flight on 3 July, 2015.

The initial installation cost is a little on the higher side. However, since the cost can be recovered in a span of a few years, it remains a lucrative deal. Also, the enormous benefits cannot be ignored. What makes solar power the talk of the town is the fact that it is 100% eco-friendly and can reach the areas where the grid cannot.

Does that mean we will see a solar world soon?

In a move much appreciated by the locals, a one of its kind medical unit, Mohalla Clinic is up and running in Piragarhi Relief Camp. The camp did not have any medical facility before this.

“Earlier we had to go to Paschim Vihar for any medical problem. It is easy for us now,” said Surendra Kohli, a TB patients and a resident of the camp.

Mohalla Clinic is a peripheral health care unit which is aimed at providing better medical facility to the weaker sections. The clinic at Pira Garhi is part of a bigger project where 500 such units will be installed in various economically weak regions of Delhi.

“This is a first of its kind demonstrative unit. We will run this and understand the problems. Then these problems will be ironed out and 500 such Mohalla Clinics will be set up in Delhi this year. ” Project manager PWD, Ashok Rajdev told NewsGram.

The Mohalla Clinic right now has a doctor, a nurse, a pharmacist and a technician. The registration process is completely digital and is done through a ‘Swasthya Slate’.

A lot of people have been visiting the clinic since it became operational last week, with 72 patients in the just the first 2 hours of its opening. Although the work load on staff is a lot, their positive and hard working attitude is inspiring.

“Yes, we are a small group, but we have to make this project successful. That’s our challenge and we will do it” Bhavna, who is the pharmacist of the clinic said.

Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain officially inspected the Mohalla Clinic today and made suggestions to improve the facility. He pointed towards the need to have facilities like drinking water dispenser, a token vending machine for the proper management of patients and provision for blood testing.

The people of the camp are undoubtedly very happy. A resident of the area, Manjit Kaur, while talking to NewsGram said that previous governments have not done anything for the area and AAP’s initiative is very noble and thoughtful. However, at the same time, she pointed out the problems due to the absence of proper roads and PDS store in the area.

“We have ration cards but there is no government outlet here. Even the roads get water logged during the rains and give rise to mosquitoes and Malaria,”  she said.
