Stir against hospital sans facilities

Members of Dalit Simha Sene staged a protest demanding basic facilities at the Narasimharaja District Hospital in Kolar on Tuesday.

The protesters complained that doctors ill-treat patients and demand money for every service rendered.

They demanded that the long-serving doctors be transferred soon and that hygiene  be maintained in the hospital premises.

Officials criticised

They did not want to withdraw the protest till they had a word with the deputy commissioner.

They raised slogans against the district surgeon, district health officer, deputy commissioner and the district-in-charge minister.

Additional Deputy Commissioner S Peddappaiah came to the spot and met the protesters. He, later, issued directions to District surgeon Dr Sridharmurthy, who promised to meet the demands of the protesters.

He also promised to upgrade the district hospital on the lines of a corporate hospital. Later, the protesters withdrew the protest.
