Early Times Report
Jammu, Oct 20: The BJP legislator from district Doda had several times taken up the matter with the then health minister Bali Bhagat regarding improvement of health sector particularly health institutions upgraded years back but his pleas were ignored by the minister.
Sources said if ministers ignored their own constituencies, the plight of other places can only be imagined.
According to siurces, the matter was several times taken up in the assembly but every time the legislator gave hollow assurances. As per government order No. 584-HME of 2014 Dated 17-10-2014 the government has upgraded hundreds of Sub Health Centers to the level of New Type Primary Health Center across state in which few of them falling from said legislator constituency.
"The locals demanded from legislator to improve the upgraded health centers because these health institutions located in far flung area of their constituency. The people of the areas have to cover several miles on foot and later kilometers by bus to reach Sub District Hospital Bhaderwah for minor treatment", sources said, adding that however, for these health institution government had sanctioned another staff including one Medical Officer and one casual worker for each upgraded institution.
At present all these upgraded institutions are being made functional by way of existing staff i.e Pharmacist, Female Multipurpose health workers. These PHCs, however, not only is defunct but also no medicines are available there. Ironically, it also lacks first aid facilities.
When locals asked the legislators about improvement of health centers, the legislators replied, government top priority to provide better health care facilities to rural areas and within month, government had provided a doctor to all upgraded health institutions but nothing has done at ground.
According to government claims, the Primary Health Centre was supposed to cover a population of 20,000 besides the PHC should in hilly, tribal or difficult areas should have six indoor/ observation beds and 24 hour emergency services with nursing facilities but all these claims were merely hoax.
