Srinagar, May 14, : In District Hospital Handwara, Medical Superintendent Dr Rouf has been acting as mute spectator and has handed over all his powers to an employee’s leader who according to locals has been treating the hospital staff as his personal fief.
“This is shame for the Medical Superintendent as well as for us. For every petty matter this Medical Superintendent consults employee’s leader Abdul Majid Mir. Mir has let loose a reign of terror in the hospital and few days back he even thrashed a doctor,” some of the employees of the hospital told .
Mir according to the hospital employees is running a mafia here and even Medical Superintendent is scared of him. “On Friday, Mir thrashed some of the nurses when they didn’t obey his orders. Mir is a class fourth employee but in reality he is controlling the hospital. Even Medical Superintendent is scared of him,” said a nurse.
“It is shameful that this employee’s leader thrashed a doctor inside the hospital. We request the Honorable Minister for Health to look into the matter and end the hegemony of this union leader,” the female staff of the hospital said adding that Medical Superintendent Dr Rouf is always at the beck and call of this employee’s leader.
When contacted Minister for Health Bali Bhagat said that he will take stern action against Medical Superintendent and the so called employee’s leader. (CNS)
