Health becomes the issue at TP meeting

Bangarpet, NOv 20, 2012, DHNS:

EO, health officer taken to task for ‘shirking responsibility’

The health facilities in the taluk hardly meet the necessities of citizens, said members of the Taluk Panchayat.

“Many residents in the border areas are forced to cross over to Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu for medical treatment,” they said, speaking at a general body on Tuesday.

‘No concern’


“The health officer of the taluk hardly shows any concern about the lack of health facilities or the fact that the health centres in many places all over the taluk were closed several years ago, but have not been reopened,” the members said, adding that the absence of the health officer at the meeting only proved his lack of concern.

The members also expressed severe dissatisfaction about the style of functioning of C Srinivas, executive officer (EO) of the Taluk Panchayat.

Measures taken

Questioning the EO on what measures he had taken to solve the health issues in Bangarpet taluk, members Chandramma and Hanumappa also asked what Srinivas had done about the health officer’s absence at the meeting or his inaction about the health issues.

“The quality of food items supplied to anganwadi centres by the Child Development Department. How can the children at the anganwadi centres then not be undernourished?” they asked.

The members also demanded an immediate change of contractors supplying food to the anganwadi centres.

Faulty information

Several mistakes were detected in the information booklet given to the members during the meeting. The members also found differences in the statistics given to the members in the booklet and those submitted for discussion during the meeting.
This added to the ire among the members about the work style of the executive officer, for forgoing such mistakes.

Vice-president Sampangi Reddy, former president Lakshmi Chakravarthi, former vice-president Amaresh and officers and members from various departments were present at the meeting.
