Previous Govt under cloud for deliberately playing with peoples' lives

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 24: The Governor administration seems to have been ruthlessly exposing the previous regimes before the public with fresh case of sealing hundreds of illegal clinics that were allowed to flourish during the tenure of the previous government.
In September alone, Directorate of Health Services Kashmir has sealed 170 illegal and un-authorized clinics across Kashmir after being directed by Divisional Commissioner Kashmir Baseer Ahmad Khan.
While the action is being lauded by the public, it has also exposed the efficiency of the previous government under whose nose these clinics were allowed to operate without any remorse.
There are also questions being raised over how come the 170 clinics in Kashmir Valley alone were operational if they were unregistered and quacks were administering medicines to poor and non- affluent people. It is also being asked about where was the previous government and why it didn't act for years against these place wherein peoples' lives were being played with sans any remorse by the quacks with government of that day in deep slumber.
"This is ironic about why the government of the past didn't act against these illegal clinics wherein it has been found that quacks masquerading as doctors were treating people and plundering their hard earned money. Wasn't the previous regime duty bound to act and save peoples' lives. Why is it that such a brave and laudable action was to be taken by the Governor administration," says an official of the state health department.
He added that there were a plethora of clinics wherein quacks were treating the people for stomach, lung and bone ailments. "The helmsmen in the previous regime were in possession of the knowledge about such a gross violation of rules. But it preferred not to act and hence indirectly allowed these outlaws to function and operate their illegal clinics at ease."
Another official privy to the development divulged that the owners of these illegal clinics were enjoying the political patronage and that there was least being done against then even if the complains about their illegal activities were received by the government. "A majority of these clinics were having the backings of one political group or the other and they used to brandish this with pride, knowing that the government wouldn't dare to at against them," said the official, adding that the inefficient system in the state has made these quacks with fake medical degrees to roam Scot-free and establish clinics in the the state that too without any formal approval.
It was informed further that it was after the imposition of Governor's rule in the state that the complaints that were being received against these unregistered clinics got the government's attention and action was initiated against them with health department sealing no less than 170 of these places. "The number could be much higher as the government will step up its campaign against the quacks in a bid to streamline the already ailing health system in Jammu and Kashmir state," says senior official of the state dispensation.
