Hyderabad, Aug.4 (NSS): CPI national secretary Dr K Narayana today slammed the state government for failing to deal with Corona cases and deaths due to lack of facilities.
In a letter addressed to Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao Narayana said that it is heartening to note that patients are fearful and flying away from Government Hospitals due to poor infrastructural and treatment facilities in Government hospitals.
The Adilabad incident is glaring example for this and shows the bankrupt attitude of Telangana Government for extending minimum required facilities to Government Hospitals. As such, unaware of the government’s failure to help the Government hospitals, several incidents of attacks on doctors are happening.
This is most unfortunate and utter failure on the part of Telangana Government to provide needed infrastructure and recruitment of doctors in Government Hospitals.
One such example is shortage of medical professionals at Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Adilabad, is directly impacting patient services. While the State government has given administrative sanction to recruit doctors, the disgruntled faculty at RIMS is ‘impeding’ the recruitment process.
The corporate hospitals are taking advantage of miserable situation in Government hospitals and exploiting the patients with lakhs of bills for undeserving services. Though COVID cases are rising day by day the facilities and numbers of doctors are not suitably provided at Government hospitals.
Moreover, some health service posts are intentionally being kept vacant due to the reasons best known to the authorities and politicians. In view of the above, I demand the Telangana State Government to take the situation on war footing and immediately provide necessary infrastructure to Government hospitals.
So much so is the recruitment and filling of the vacant doctors positions most immediately.
