Heads Must Roll: Tarigami, Hakim, Rashid

Srinagar, May 16: Expressing strong anger, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani Wednesday termed the alleged mess at G B Pant hospital as negligence amounting to conspiracy of genocide. He blamed the government of killing children of the valley in cold blood and termed the GB Pant mess as an extension of policies adopted for genocide of Kashmiris.
Chairman of Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq expressed shock over the infant deaths. “This is height of negligence. The Government claims that it spends crores of rupees on healthcare but its claims have proved to be a hoax,” Mirwaiz told Greater Kashmir.
“If Government has no money let them ask us we will collect lakhs from people to save our kids,” he added.
Mirwaiz said the people from far flung areas reach G B Pant hospital with a hope that their kids would get well but the “lackadaisical attitude” of the authorities has turned this hospital into a “graveyard.” “This is a matter of concern as our kids are very dear to us,” he added.
He expressed solidarity with the families who have lost their kids during past few months due to “negligence.”
CPI (M) state secretary and MLA Kulgam, Muhammad Yousf Tarigami has demanded a judicial inquiry and asserted that it was a wake-up call for government to take a stern action. “Heads must roll, we can’t afford to remain mute spectators when our innocent infants are dying due to human negligence”, an agitated Tarigami told KNS, adding that the expose should have at least created some concern in the corridors of power. “I am shocked with the insensitiveness being shown to such a grave issue,” Tarigami maintained.
“Situation is alarming and warrants a strong action,” he said. He demanded that the ‘culprits’ must be identified and brought to book, so that such ‘heinous’ acts are not repeated in future.
Meanwhile PDF Chairman Hakeem Muhammad Yasin also expressed serious concern over the issue and demanded a thorough probe.
MLA Langate Er. Rasheed has condemned the alleged negligence at GB Pant Hospital in the strongest terms and decided to stage a sit-in outside the hospital on Thursday.
