DHANBAD: The call attention and untouched question implementation committee (CAUQIMC) of the Jharkhand legislative assembly has decided to call secretaries of the departments of health and sports and youth affairs on December 17 to discuss issues related to Patliputra Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), and the under construction mega sports complex here.
Arup Chatterjee, Nirsa legislator and chairman of the CAUQIMC and other committee members on Friday inspected the incomplete mega stadium complex to get first-hand information regarding the stadium that is under construction for past eight years.
The committee chairman said, “Keeping in mind the people, the committee has decided to call secretaries of both health department as well as sports and youth affairs to discuss issues on December 17 at Ranchi. The committee has also called PMCH principal and superintendent on the same day to discuss the seat reduction issue.”
“The number of seats in PMCH was reduced by Medical Council of India (MCI) from 100 to 50 from 2017. The committee wants to know why the government failed to fulfill required criteria by the MCI for increasing the seats,” added the legislator.
Chatterjee said departmental authorities in Dhanbad have already sent a revised estimate of Rs 8.35 crore for completing the stadium. However, it remains pending at the departmental secretary level.
Chatterjee also expressed concern that senior officers of the district, including the deputy commissioner and the superintendent of police do not give proper response to the assembly committees. “In Dhanbad, neither the DC nor SP attended the meetings. The issue would be reported to theVidhan Sabha in writing. The assembly speaker too would be apprised of the scenario,” said Chatterjee.
MLAs Biranchi Narayan, Badal Patralekh, Raj Kumar Yadav and Dhullu Mahto attended the meeting as members of the committee. MLA Raj Sinha was present as a questioner in the meeting.
