Will act if Govt fails: Speaker
Srinagar, May 17: Speaker Legislative Assembly, Muhammad Akbar Lone, Thursday said he will take action against authorities of G B Pant Hospital if the government fails to take the issue to its logical conclusion.
“The events which have been unfolding in the hospital are unfortunate and it is hospital authorities who are to be blamed for their callous approach. Whatever happens there is very bad and has negative implications on society as a whole,” Lone told Greater Kashmir on the sidelines of a function here.
He said he would take action if the issue was brought into his consideration. “The moment this issue is brought into my consideration I am going to go tough on these guys out there in the hospital. They are doing absolute wrong and must be dealt with seriously,” the Speaker said, adding that inquiry ordered by Ministry of Medical Education was a good sign.
On being asked that media had already brought the issue to fore, Lone said he would take action in his official capacity. “Since I have authority to deal with these people I will take full action but only if Ministry does not come up with substantial solution. But it is good that they have already issued an inquiry into the matter and is a good sign to make the arrogant hospital authorities feel responsible and shoulder further duties,” he said.
