Supreme Court imposed Rs 25,000 cost on Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain
05 October 2016 Current Affairs GK: Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain was slapped a fine of Rs 25,000 by the Supreme Court for not disclosing names of officials, accused by him of not cooperating with the AAP government in containing the menace of dengue and chikungunya in the national capital. 

The apex court had on Friday taken strong exception to Jain's allegation that officials were not cooperating or taking responsibility to check vector-borne diseases in the national capital and had asked him to give names and evidence of such officials .

Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar sought the court's permission to file an affidavit on behalf of Delhi health secretary saying certain facts needed to be placed before the bench. The court gave liberty to Kumar to file the affidavit. 

An affidavit filed by Jain in response to notices issued to Delhi government on a PIL, which was taken suo motu cognisance of by the apex court, said no official has come forward to take responsibility, even to file an affidavit on the measures taken to curb dengue and chikungunya. 

Jain, in his affidavit, had alleged that officials were not taking responsibility and all files pertaining to diseases like dengue and chikungunya were being sent to the Lieteuant Governor for clearance.
