Talk­ing me­di­a­men Dr. Baseer Shinwari and other staff of the hos­pi­tal said that the of­fi­cials of TESCO has sus­pended the elec­tric­ity to the hos­pi­tal which has not only cre­ated trou­bles for var­i­ous depart­ment of the hos­pi­tal but also caused mis­eries of the pa­tients.

Dr. Ashiq threat­ens if the power was not re­stored within two days they would close all the depart­ments of the hos­pi­tal un­less the elec­tric­ity restora­tion. Ac­cord­ing to doc­tors the FATA health depart­ment at FATA sec­re­tariat has not paid some Rs.5 mil­lion ru­pees which was payable to the TESCO of­fi­cials as the elec­tric­ity bill of the hos­pi­tal and today the of­fi­cials of Landiko­tal grid sta­tion cut off their power.

The doc­tors said it was the re­spon­si­bil­ity of the FATA sec­re­tariat to pay the due bill of elec­tric­ity to the con­cern depart­ment. Later, the of­fi­cials of TESO re­stored the power sup­ply to the hos­pi­tal af­ter the me­di­a­tion of me­dia per­sons of Landiko­tal who raised the is­sue with the of­fi­cials of the po­lit­i­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion of Khy­ber Agency.

Ear­lier Dr. Baseer Shinwari crit­i­cized the rude be­hav­ior of Ir­shad Mohmand, the po­lit­i­cal tehsil­dar of Landiko­tal when he vis­ited the hos­pi­tal to talk with the health staff of the hos­pi­tal about the is­sue. Doc­tors said that the po­lit­i­cal tehsil­dar talked them in a very rude and in­hu­man be­hav­ior which they strongly con­demned.
