"The Chief Minister has given instructions to make a comprehensive proposal to make Delhi mosquito-free in which help of concerned officials of Union Government, Delhi government and Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and neighbouring towns of Delhi-NCR region should be taken", Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was quoted saying by the agency on same.

Kejriwal also received complaints about X-Ray and CT Scan machines not functioning properly in some hospitals. Minutes later, he tweeted about it. Kejriwal had conducted surprise checks on government hospitals to ensure availability of medicines and functional equipment. Officials added that Kejriwal was likely to conduct surprise inspections of hospitals to ensure that patients and their families "do not face any hardships due to non-availability of medicines and equipment, for which the Delhi government has made all financial provisions". Pulling up the authorities, Kejriwal expressed displeasure at not being provided regular reports about the status of medicines and consumables, despite clear directions given to the Chief Secretary on April 6. "Directed chief secy today to ensure 100per cent availability of medicines in all Del govt hospitals. It is hereby directed that henceforth all officers, other than those who have field duties, shall be present on their seats between 1000-1100 hrs, meet people without appointments and solve their issues", a directive issued from Mr Kejriwal's office stated. All public hospitals have a list of up to 1200 medicines and consumables mentioned in the Essential Drug List.
