ESI Hospital inaugurated; Minister seeks Central support


ESI Hospital inaugurated; Minister seeks Central support

Mysuru: Karnataka Minister for Labour Venkataramanappa inaugurated the newly-constructed ESI Hospital here on Wednesday and sought more funds from the Union Government for development.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that the government projects take their own time to see light. The project that should have been completed years back has finally been done.

There have been a lot of changes in the Labour Department. The government has introduced several programmes for development of the Department including Rs 50 000 for the Labourer’s children marriage besides constructing Houses for the Labours.

Admitting that the ESI Hospitals lack staff and his department is trying to solve all the problems, he said that the State government has already written the letter to the concerned in this connection.

Taking strong exception to Lok Sabha member Pratap Simha’s statement that the State government has not done anything for the Labour class, he said Mr Simha should not limit himself to speeches. He should work the way he speaks. “Put some pressure on the central government to get the works done, he taunted the MP.

The 100-bed hospital has been constructed at a cost of Rs 33.10 Crore. It needs equipment worth Rs 13 crore and staff. The State Labour Minister has to cooperate with us to solve these issues, said Pratap Simha.

The newly-constructed ESI Hospital is open for patients. It will benefit 1.27 lakh labours”, said MP Dhruvanarayan.

    SOME STATE GOVERNMENTS CLAIM TO BE NUMBER UNO / ONE IN THE COUNTRY . SHOULD NOT ASK FOR THE MONEY FROM THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. INSTEAD THEY SHOULD HELP POOR , UNDERPRIVILEGED POPULATION OF THE STATE/ COUNTRY. COMING TO SCARCITY / UNAVAILABILITY OF DOCTORS , WHAT IS NEED OF CONSTRRUCTING MORE AND MORE NON-FUNCTIONAL BUILDINGS , THAT TOO AT A AN HIGHER COST. I HAVE SEEN/ LEARNT FROM MEDICAL DIALOGUES , FOR 25 CROES 100 BEDED HOSPITALS BEING CONSTRATED IN SOME OF CITIES OF HARYANA. I THINK IT IS CRIMINAL WASTE OF MONEY TO CONSTRUCT INEFFICIENT , POORLY FUNCTIONAL HOSPITALS WITH OUT ADIQUATE , DEDICATED DOCTORS . ( MOST OF DOCTORS ARE NOT BE SEEN SOON AFTER THE ATTENDENCE ANY WHERE NEAR THE / IN THE HOSPITAL . THEY JUST DISAPPER TO THEIR PRIVATE PRATICE . I SAW IT TODAY\’S DECCAN HERALD DAILY NEWS PAPER , A POOR INNOCENT HELPLESS UNDERPRIVILEGED PREGNANT LADY TO BREATH HER LAST BREATHE IN A SO CALLED TEACHING MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITAL CALLED BIDAR INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL SCIENCES , BIDAR, KAR NATAKA . WEAK UP ……. GOOD GOVERNCE MATTERS THE MOST NOT SPENDING TAX PAYERS UNNECESSARILY ON BRINGING OUT CONCRETE STRECTURE WHICH BECOMES STINKING WARDS WHICH BECOMES THE SOURCE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE INSPECTIONS. Unless and until GOVERNMENTS impose Blanket BAN ON PRIVATE PRATICE , ANY NUMBER OF NEW BUILDINGS ARE GOING TO BE A MEAR WASTE OF PUBLIC MONEY.
