Lucknow, May 23 (TIWN) Dhirendra Singh, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) legislator from Jewar Assembly area of Greater Noida, has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath demanding an audit of private hospitals that have been overcharging patients in the Covid crisis.

He further said, "At such a time, when private hospitals play a crucial role in fighting the pandemic, there are a number of complaints against them for overcharging, with bills as proof. For a better healthcare system in the country, not only do such practices have to stop, but hospitals must also adopt a couple of primary health centres in nearby villages as a corporate social responsibility. This will help improve the health infrastructure of the villages."   

Following the letter, the district chief medical officer (CMO) has sought responses from private hospitals in Gautam Buddha Nagar within three days.   Gautam Buddha Nagar Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Deepak Auri said, "If found overcharging, strict action will be taken against the private hospitals."
