Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said after a surprise visit that there was a shortage of pharmacists and ultrasound machines at the Guru Tegh Bahadur (GTB) Hospital here.

"There were patients who stood in line for the whole day and did not get medicines and have come back today. We have to solve this issue soon," Kejriwal told reporters outside the hospital.

"Long queues at pharmacy. Need to increase number of counters and pharmacists," Kejriwal later tweeted. Kejriwal also spoke to patients admitted to the hospital and said people were mostly satisfied with the medical services.
