-

New Delhi, Oct 3 (ILNS) A Social activist and a lawyer today raised a voice on unnecessary harassment of a poor patient, a child of 7, at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital who asked the boy’s mother to procure a referral letter from another hospital.

The boy, Mohan, is the son of a construction worker who holds a Labour Card issued by the Delhi government under the provisions of Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Act, 1996 read with Delhi Rules. He was denied free treatment by Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, said Agarwal in a letter to the Principal Secretary (Health), Government of NCT of Delhi.

While advocating for the rights of the economically weaker section, advocate Ashok Agarwal who raised the voice for the boy said, “ Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is forcing the parents of a boy who is from an economically weaker section to provide the reference/referral letter from Delhi Govt. Hospital is nothing but unwarranted illegal and unjustified harassment to a poor patient and denial of free treatment in violation of Supreme Court and Delhi High Court Orders.”

After the intervention of advocate Ashok aggarwal, now, the child is being given the required treatment./ILNS/KR/SNG/
