Kejriwal’s statement came after his deputy, Manish Sisodia, inaugurated yet another mohalla clinic, akin to England’s walk-in centre, in his constituency, Patparganj on Sunday.

Delhi government’s pilot project entails opening of 100 mohalla clinics in the first phase in a new format — in rented accommodations and manned by private or retired doctors.
In February, while highlighting his government’s achievements of one year, Kejriwal had reiterated his intention to build 1,000 mohalla clinics in Delhi.
