Kishtwar, 19 Jan: A renowned
Social Activist and President Global Peace Foundation Jammu and Kashmir Mr Junaid Malik has demanded strict action against the erring doctors who pushed away the pregnant lady at LalDed hospital, who later gave birth to a dead girl child on Bemina road amidst sub zero temprature. The incident has jolted the people of the state with cry of harshest punishment to the erring doctor.
Mr Malik in a press statement said that it has become a norm in the state to mistreat the poor patients more specifically the tribal people in government hospitals and many doctors have become traders who are blot on the noble profession.
He further said that the state of affairs in the peripheral hospitals is in worst condition where not even the basic facilities are not available.The poor patients are referred to city hospitals which are already full of crowd and devoid of advanced facilitaties. The successive governments have only hoodwinked the people with zero performance on ground. Despite spending crores, the healthcare system in the state is in shambles where poor and down trodden people are the primary victims of such happening.
It is pertinent to mention here that recently a father had to hide his dead child under blanket in public transport when he was referred from District Hospital Kishtwar and later denied ambulance by the hospital authorities.
Mr Malik has demanded urged upon Governor of the state to take proactive measures in health care sector and punish the guilty who mistreat the poor patients in hospitals.
