NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the Delhi government is preparing a legal framework to nail private hospitals guilty of criminal negligence and cheating people, according to an official.

"The Chief Minister said that his government is preparing the legal framework to nail private hospitals for committing criminal negligence and cheating on the pretext of offering wellness and healthcare to the people," an official statement said.

Kejriwal was speaking at the inauguration of "Delhi Smiles - Dental Health Utsav, 2017" at Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences (MAIDS).

Speaking on the occasion, Health Minister Satyendar Jain said that the government had planned to develop five more MAIDS and 100 dental clinics in the city.

The Chief Minister also congratulated the MAIDS for being ranked as the best dental institution in the country for the last five years.
