HOUSE PANEL ON GB PANT MEETS
‘REPORT WILL BE SHOCKER’
Srinagar, June 4: The House panel set up by Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Muhammad Akbar Lone to look into the “messy affairs” of the GB Pant Hospital here, will submit its report within one month.
The Committee met Monday in the Legislative Assembly complex here to discuss the possible reasons that might have led to 480 infant deaths in five months in the Valley’s lone Children Hospital. “We are meeting again on Friday before we start compiling the report,” chairman of the 13 member Estimates Committee Chaudhary Muhammad Ramzan told a local news agency KNS, adding that the committee will submit its report to the Speaker within one month.
“We will submit our report within one month,” Ramzan said and added that Monday’s meeting touched upon every possible aspect of the mess.
Meanwhile, a member of the committee, pleading anonymity told KNS that the report may be shocker for many. He, however, declined to elaborate. “The report may shake the ground beneath many,” the member told KNS.
Pertinently the Speaker had asked the Estimates Committee to probe the matter after two senior PDP leaders Peerzada Mansoor and Syed Bashrat Bukhari urged him (Speaker) to intervene into the death spree at GB Pant hospital last month.
Speaker termed the incident unfortunate and ordered an enquiry by the panel headed by Chaudhary Ramzan.
More than 480 kids have died in the hospital since January this year which has compelled Chief Minster Omar Abdullah to pay at least two visits to the hospital and order a separate inquiry by Director SKIMS Dr Shoukat Ahmad Zargar.
The medical superintendent has been transferred and more equipments and man power has been sanctioned to the hospital. KNS
