Amenities missing, patients turn to private hospitals

Tribune News Service

Ambala, September 1
Condition of Government Hospitals has always been the biggest concerns of the government as well as poor people. Time and again lack of facilities and proper staff has been talked about but to no avail.

Built in the British era, the Civil Hospital in Ambala Cantonment was then a premier institute in the state. However, now it is in a pitiable condition. A large section of the ailing populace of the region does not get proper facilities at the 75-bedded hospital.

The wards are ill maintained with stinking toilets. The bed sheets are not frequently changed. Most part of the hospital has been declared unfit to accommodate patients. There is no generator except for one at the operation theatre. Even the operation theatre is unfit for carrying out surgeries in absence of sophisticated equipment.

Sources reveal that patients from middle class and poor families prefer to visit this hospital since it is financially viable for them as far as operations of ears, nose and throat are concerned. However, when it comes to the most delicate organ of the body --the heart -- people prefer to keep away from such hospitals. According to Narendar Chaudhry, civil surgeon, Ambala, there is no post of cardiologist in this hospital.

Sources in the hospital disclosed that the main reason for people flocking to private hospitals and staying away from reputed government hospitals was that such hospitals did not have state-of-the-art equipment to deal with surgery cases. As a result, there has been more than 50 per cent decline in the number of patients. There is no canteen in the hospital and no place to stay for attendants accompanying the patients.

Sources said a large number of patients, usually accident victims, die for the want of blood, which is often arranged from the blood bank in Ambala City, more than 10 km away. One of the relatives of a patient admitted in the hospital alleged that blood was arranged through professional donors, who charge exorbitantly.

A majority of these donors belong to the weaker sections of society.

Official sources also disclosed that there was no ultrasound facility in the hospital. Patients have to go to private clinics for ultrasound and other radiological tests since there is no radiologist in the hospital.



Poor response from voters
Tribune News Service

Ambala, September 1
The Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) election has evoked a poor response from Sikh voters in Ambala district this year in spite of the one month extension given by the authorities for registration of the voters in the state.

Sources said the number of Sikh voters in Ambala district was more than 29,000 in the last SGPC election in the state, which had now witnessed a drop to 17,629 during registration of voters completed recently by the district administration as against expectation of more than 50,000 Sikh voters.

Earlier, the Sikh leaders made appeals to the Sikhs to get forms filled in and submit to the MCs in urban areas and patwaris in the rural areas before August 14.

To mobilise the Sikhs qualified for becoming voters, Jathedar Harpal Singh Pali and Haryana Akali Dal secretary general Jathedar Ranbir Singh Fauji organised meetings in this regard and admitted that Sikhs were not coming forward to participate in the electoral process.

They said though the government had extended the date for vote preparing, the members of the community were not availing the opportunity to get themselves registered as voters. They appealed to them to file the application forms to enrol themselves as voters.

He, along with other Sikh leaders, expressed concern over the strict measures adopted by the district administration to identify eligible voters to participate in coming SGPC elections in the state.

He said only “keshdhari” Sikhs would be able to vote in the coming election. He said recent floods in the district had also severely affected the process of registering of voters.

According to official information, a total number of 17,629 Sikh voters identified to cast their vote in the coming SGPC elections include 9,306 from Ambala City, 3,496 from Ambala Cantt, 4,428 from rural areas in the district, 340 from Shahzadpur and 59 from Kavadmajra circle.

When contacted, Gurdeep Singh Bhanokheri of SGPC (Haryana), claimed that the number of voters registered in Ambala is higher than the last election which was nearly 27,000. He said some patwaris have not submitted the registration forms of the new voters. After submission of the pending forms, the number of voters would be about 35,000, he claimed.

The complainants, Ajay Wadhwa and Prabh Dyal Wadhwa, both residents of Mohali, had filed execution for compliance of orders under Section 27 of the Consumer Production Act.

Ajay had stated in the complaint that his brother Amit Wadhwa had taken an education loan of Rs 3.95 lakh from the State Bank of India, Mohali branch.

He had further taken an insurance cover of Rs 4 lakh from the SBI Life Insurance Company Limited and he was the nominee in the policy.

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, September 1
High hopes of former Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Director Saji Mohan being produced in the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Lalit Batra today fell flat as he was not produced before the judge yet again.

Instead, the authorities of the Central Jail in Mumbai today submitted a letter in Marathi, stating that as per the procedure followed by NDPS courts, the NCB had to produce the accused along with security with the assurance that he would be brought back after orders in the case were pronounced.

During the last hearing, the court had raised questions on the conduct of Superintendent, Central Jail, Arthur Road, Mumbai, and had asked the IG (Prisons) to initiate action against the Superintendent.

The court had been issuing production warrants for Saji Mohan, but he had not appeared even once as the jail authorities had not brought him here.

He had been booked by the UT police for embezzlement of funds and a charge sheet in the case was filed in June, 2009. He had also been booked by the Mumbai police after contraband was seized from him.

Mohali, September 1
A chartered accountant was questioned by a Special Judge here today in connection with the disproportionate assets case against Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal, his wife Surinder Kaur Badal, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal, and others.

A 34-page report containing details about the property, bank accounts and other matters was shown by the court to chartered accountant SK Srivastava. He was asked whether the signatures on the report were his to which he replied in the affirmative. When he was asked whether he had read the contents of the report before signing it, Srivastava said that he had not read the report but had allegedly signed it under pressure of the then DIG BK Uppal.

He said he wanted to go through the contents of the report but was told by the DIG that the document was confidential and, moreover, a rough draft. He was further told that he would be given a copy of the final document. But he was never shown the report. He had signed the document at the office of the Vigilance Bureau.

Srivastava was appointed chartered accountant by the Vigilance Bureau for evaluating the contents of the report. He was paid Rs 40,000 in this regard.

Srivastava was questioned by Special Judge Rajinder Aggarwal in the presence of both Badals. Surinder Kaur Badal has been exempted from appearing in the court.

The next date of hearing has been fixed for September 20. The then DIG BK Uppal and investigating officer Surinder Pal have been summoned for examination.

Chandigarh, September 1
Local outfit New Public School, Sector 18, were overpowered by visitors Mohun Bagan Academy, Kolkata, by a solitary first-half goal through T Borish Singh in the inaugural Group-C match of the 8th Administrator’s Challenge Cup Under-17 All-India Soccer Tournament at the football stadium, Sector 17, here today.

The all-important goal was scored in the 17th minute when Borish bulged the net after getting a clean pass from Gopal Kundu from the left flank.

The difference of goals could have been bigger had the visitors capitalised on the chances that came their way. Mohun Bagan forwards tested the NPS’s defence many a time after their first success but failed to capitalise on any of the chances.

In 28th minute, MBA’s Narayan Biswas dribbled his way into the ‘D’ area. However, he unsuccessfully tried to dodge the custodian, Parminder Singh. In the second half, Mohun Bagan witnessed many good chances but could not score.

On the other hand, NPS were evidently relying on rough play. Jobandeep Singh of NPS was cautioned twice for deliberately indulging in rough tackle. He was first cautioned in the 33rd minute and later in the 62nd minute when he punched Sanjoy Halder of Mohun Bagan, who was taken out on stretcher for medical treatment. He earned two yellow cards, while his teammate Rishi Chettri was cautioned in the 64th minute for rough play.

The win earned three points for Mohun Bagan in their first outing.

Mukesh fires 67 to take slender lead
Donald Banerjee

Chandigarh, September 1
Mukesh Kumar from Mhow fired a blemish-free five under 67 to leapfrog to the top of the leaderboard at seven under 137 at the midway stage of the PGTI Players Championship on the Chandigarh Golf Club greens here today.

Breathing down his neck barely one stroke behind at 138 are Harendra P Gupta of Chandigarh and Delhi’s Vinod Kumar, who carded the best card of the day, a six under 66 on the par-72 greens of the local course.

Chandigarh’s fourth-ranked PGTI player Sujjan Singh (13 over 157) failed to make cut by seven strokes. Also falling by the wayside was Ranjit Singh (eight over 152), as 50 professionals and two amateurs made it to the third round.

Mukesh was in great hitting form, but his putting just did not click. He came very close to firing eagles on the par-5 13th and second holes, but ended up with birdies two-putting from 20 ft and 15 ft, respectively.

Starting from the 10th, the Mhow-based professional sank birdies on the 13th and 15th to be two under 34 at the turn. He fired another three birdies on the back nine (second, fifth and sixth) for a bogey-free five under 67 card. His performance took him from the overnight sixth slot to the top of the leaderboard.

Mukesh, who is ranked second on the PGTI Order of Merit, looks to finish the season with the top rank. Talking about his game today, he said: “My hitting was much better today. I was quite accurate off the tee with the ball landing very close. But I still need to improve my putting.”

Delhi’s Vinod Kumar, who has had four top-10s this season, came back with a flurry of five birdies on the back nine to post the best card of the day.

A 10th tee starter, Vinod started badly, missing five birdie putts before sinking his first birdie putt on the 18th to be one under 35 at the turn. But on the back nine, the Delhi golfer converted all five birdie putts for a flawless five under 31.

Vinod said: “I felt a little out of sorts during round one but now seem to be back in my groove. I’m looking forward to playing alongside Mukesh Kumar in the third round. One gets to learn a lot from playing in the same three-ball as Mukesh since he is such an experienced campaigner.”

Chandigarh’s Harendra Gupta, who has had just one top-10 finish this season, played some steady golf today. He repeated his three under 69 card on the second day to tie with Vinod Kumar at the second spot. Harendra fired four birdies but conceded a bogey on the 14th.

Overnight leaders Gaurav Pratap Singh (Noida) and Ashok Kumar (Delhi) slipped to fourth and fifth slots at 139 and 140, respectively.

Rahil Gangjee’s (72-72) two-day total of even par 144 helped him end the day in tied ninth place.

Chandigarh’s Randhir Singh Ghotra fired another even par 72 card to be tied ninth at 144.

Seasoned Harmeet Kahlon, an Arjuna awardee, could muster a two over 74 card to be tied 16th at one over 145 (71-74). Three other city golfers — big-hitter Gurbaaz Mann, Ajeetesh Sandhu and AS Lehal — are tied 24th, one stroke behind Kahlon.

With two more days to go the contest is still wide open.

Scores (after second round): 137 Mukesh Kumar (70-67); 138 Vinod Kumar (72-66) and Harendra P Gupta (69-69); 139 Gaurav Pratap Singh (68-71); 140 Ashok Kumar (68-72); 141 Shankar Das (70-71); 142 Om Prakash Chauhan (73-69); 143 Feroz Ali Mollah (68-75); 144 Randhir Singh Ghotra (72-72), Toran Bikram Shahi (74-70), Ranjit Singh Rathore (74-70), Rahil Gangjee (72-72), Shamim Khan (72-72), Shaurya Singh (71-73) and Vikrant Chopra (74-70).
