Tral, Fab 09: Residents of Batgund Tral area of Pulwama district here on today Padlocked the building of a health department to protest against alleged unavailability of the doctors.
Scores of patients who had reached the New Type Primary Health Center (NTPHC) Batagund on Saturday morning lost their patience after they were made to wait for hours together for treatment. Due to ample of facilities, doctors are not in a position to use them for patient’s care and treatment.

Aggreived residents said that, Higher authorities need to take immediate steps to remove the locals from agony conditions.
Locals said that we approached several times to the higher authorities to address the problems but their efforts failed. They said that hospital lacks some basic healthcare as there are no doctors and paramedics to attend the patients who visit the hospital daily.
