Cor­po­ra­tor rats on hospi­tal at civic body meet

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Mu­nic­i­pal Gen­eral Hospi­tal in Kan­di­vli, also known as Shatabdi Hospi­tal, were bit­ten by rats.

Ear­lier, the gen­eral body of the BMC held dis­cus­sions fol­low­ing a no­tice moved by Congress Cor­po­ra­tor Ashraf Azmi from Kurla to de­bate over the poor con­di­tion of civic hos­pi­tals un­der sec­tion 66B of Re­vised Mumbai Mu- nic­i­pal Act 1888. Azmi al­leged that the civic ad­min­is­tra­tion has failed to spend the funds set aside in the bud­get for the health depart­ment. “The civic hos­pi­tals lack ba- sic fa­cil­i­ties while ad­min­is­tra­tion is sit­ting with funds,” said Azmi. He added that ma­jor op­er­a­tions in the hos­pi­tals are post­poned for silly rea­sons like a fourth grade em­ployee did not turn up. “In the last three months, sev­eral pa­tients had to wait for op­er­a­tion as hos­pi­tals had not re­ceived nec­es­sary clothes re­quired for the op­er­a­tion from laun­dry,” said Azmi. He added that there is lack of staff in the laun­dry.

He was sup­ported by all po­lit­i­cal par­ties in­clud­ing the BJP. Mean­while, I A Kun­dan, ad­di­tional mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner sub­mit­ted a re­port on rat bites in Shatabdi Hospi­tal in Kan­di­vli.
