PDP protests lack of basic facilities
Bandipora, July 11: The activists of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) staged protest here on Wednesday against lack of basic amenities and poor healthcare facilities in the district.
Hundreds of PDP workers took out a rally and assembled outside the Boys Higher Secondary School Kaloosa where the health authorities were observing the World Population Day.
The rally was led by Ghulam Nabi Tantray, Chairman Alnoor College and senior PDP activist. Carrying banners and placards, the activists shouted slogans against the Health authorities for what they alleged depriving people of the district of the basic health facilities.
“The SDH Bandipora does have basic healthcare facilities. There are no specialists and the hospital even sans proper power supply,” Tantray said.
“There is only one Ambulance in the hospital while three Ambulances were approved for it in last two board meetings. I strongly condemn inhuman treatment meted out to the patients by hospital staff,” he added.
The protesters impressed upon the Minster of Health, Director Health and Chief Medical Officer Bandipora to look into the matter and take immediate measures to resolve it at the earliest.
