Early Times Report
srinagar, July 12: Directorate of Health Services Kashmir (DHSK) along with Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Bandipora have been caught on the wrong foot as more than two dozen doctors and paramedical staff posted in remote and inaccessible place of state (Gurez) have been attached in Bandipora district headquarter and its adjacent areas.
On one hand Government claims of providing better healthcare facilities to people living in remote and far-flung areas of state, while as authorities at the helm of affairs are attaching the medical officers and paramedics at some other places by taking bribe from the illegal beneficiaries. All this is raising a big question-mark on the credibility of Government especially the General Administration Department (GAD) who had issued the detachment order last year in July on the direction of Governor administration ?
Details available with Early Times reveal that as many as 4 doctors and around 16 paramedical staff appointed under National Health Mission (NHM) in remote Gurez block of Bandipora district have been attached in District Hospital Bandipora and various Sub District Hospitals (SDHs) across the district while as people who are in need of urgent healthcare in this remote area are made to suffer.
In addition to NHM staff around 8 paramedics from regular staff which includes 3 head pharmacists , one junior health inspector one junior driver , two nursing orderlies and one senior driver are also attached in Bandipora. Ironically among them one senior driver is attached in DC office Bandipora and half a dozen are attached in CMO office and rest are attached with BMOs and local SD hospitals . A nursing orderly is attached with Food Safety Officer Bandipora as well.
These details have been provided by BMO Gurez to Mohammad Ramzan Khan a noted RTI Activist after around 1 ½ years of long battle vide official communication No: BMOG/Estt/2019/100-01 dated 11.06.2019. The letter which was dispatched on 11th June 2019 was posted to Srinagar on 28th June. Khan told Early Times that BMO Gurez who is also the designated Public Information Officer (PIO) was trying to hide the information and when she was reprimanded by the State Information Commission (SIC) during several hearings, she still didn't provide the information and it was after a great struggle that the information was finally provided by her. Khan alleges that there are many doctors posted in Gurez who are attached in Bandipora , Srinagar and other districts and their details have not been revealed by the BMO. He demanded strict action against the CMO , BMO and all the officials who are managing these attachments. He appealed State Information Commission (SIC) to take action against BMO the designated PIO for suppressing information for such a long time by penalizing her under the provisions of RTI Law.
