Patna: Once known for flexing his muscle, Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) MP Pappu Yadav has now donned the mantle of a vigilante.
In his latest campaign, the MP issued a diktat to medical practitioners to refrain from fleecing patients in the name of better treatment and conducted surprise raids at various clinics in Saharsa district in Bihar “to detect anomalies”.
“I have checked different pathological labs in Saharsa and found several irregularities,” Yadav said, adding: “I have asked all the doctors not to charge irrational fees from patients or prescribe unnecessary tests.”
Yadav reportedly ‘fixed’ the consultation fee of doctors in Bihar depending upon their qualifications and experience. Raising their voice against the diktat, doctors said that the MP from Madhepura had no business to prescribe their fee.
“Who is Pappu Yadav to fix our fees?” asked a veteran doctor in the state.
Yadav has ‘advised’ the doctors not to charge more than Rs 300 as their consultation fee. The move has evoked sharp reactions from doctors and various political parties.
BJP’s Saharsa legislator Alok Ranjan led a team of leaders to the district magistrate, complaining about the way Yadav had raided the clinics and pathological centres.
