‘Upgrade dismal healthcare system’
Bandipora, June 6: People’s Democratic Party leader and MLA Bandipora, Nizamudin Bhat on Monday accused the state government of playing politics with the development of the health sector in north Kashmir’s Bandipora Township.
Day after Greater Kashmir highlighted the dismal state of health sector in Bandipora, Bhat sought immediate attention of the state government to develop the crumbling health sector in the area.
Bhat waved the copies of Greater Kashmir in the District Development Board meeting to point out the dismal sate of health sector in the constituency.
Lamenting over the alleged dilly-dally tactics of state government over the implementation of decisions taken in earlier Board meetings, Bhat said the decisions taken in DDB meetings are not being implemented at all.
Referring towards the decisions of Ex-Chief Minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, Bhat said, “It is unfortunate that the government has not implemented the decisions taken in earlier Board meetings.”
“The decision taken in earlier Board meetings for approval of critical care ambulance to Sumlar and two ambulances for SDH Bandipora haven’t been implemented yet,” Bhat said.
He said “the SDH in Bandipora is a victim of politics as either staff is being unnecessarily transferred to other institutions or machinery is being moved to other places.”
“We have only one ambulance and hospital is lacking specialist doctors,” he added.
Bhat complained that the decisions taken in last year’s Board meeting regarding the development of healthcare institutions were not implemented properly. Union Health Minster has released funds worth Rs 2 crores for the up gradation of Bandipora hospital, but the representatives in state government are not utilizing the funds due to reasons best know to them”.
“The infrastructure in all the three PHCs should be immediately upgraded besides the essential power supply should be provided to SDH Bandipora,” Bhat demanded.
