Fake drug menace in Kashmir takes toll on patients: Dr Allaqband
Srinagar, Sep 18: Renowned physician, Dr G Q Allaqband today cautioned the government about the increasing use of fake drugs in Kashmir.
“These drugs are taking toll on patients, who after consuming them were not recuperating. Instead these patients develop symptoms which are detrimental to their health,” Dr Allaqband said.
"Civil society/private agencies instead of wasting huge money in marriage ceremonies should invest it in establishing big specialized hospitals and other public utility institutions in the valley, so that there is not Somalia like situation here. This will reward them on the Day of Judgment also. Moreover, the Government should also take immediate steps to control the fake drug menace in the state and should reorganize the establishment and medical services rules pertaining to doctors, so that they return with experience to join and serve in hospitals here," said Dr Allaqband while inaugurating a one-day free medical camp organized by the Health Wing of J&K Rural Development Society (RDS).
CM’s advisor and RDS chairman, Mubarak Gul, who was the chief guest, spoke about the aims and objectives of Society and its commitment to help economically deprived and unprivileged sections of society by organizing free medical camps in remote and far flung areas of Jammu and Kashmir.
Gul announced that the next medical camp will be held at Gurez valley on October 21-22 with the active participation and collaboration of Jammu and Kashmir Health and Medical Education Department.
Commissioner/Secretary Health and Medical Education Department, G A Peer assured Chairman RDS of full support of the Department in helping organize such medical camps for needy and poor who cannot afford to spend money on medical care.
Chairman RDS Medical wing, Dr Ghulam Jeelani spoke about the importance of organizing such medical camps and appealed to the fellow doctors to come forward and participate in these camps.
