Inquiry against director of Sanjay Gandhi Hospital

 The Council has also directed him to go on leave and appointed Health Director Dr Usha Wasunkar as in-charge Director.

Health Minister Sriramulu, who is also the chairman of the Council, told the media here on Friday that several complaints of irregularities have been received against the Director and he has been asked to proceed on leave with a view to ensure a fair inquiry.
The CM’s office had recently directed Govindaraju to go on leave following allegations against him. But he refused to comply. In fact, it is only the Council which has the authority to send the Director on leave. The Council therefore met on Friday and endorsed the decision, sources said. It was alleged that Govindaraju had procured medicines and materials required for the hospital in violation of the rules.

Sriramulu said all precautionary steps have been taken in the flood-hit areas to prevent outbreak of epidemic diseases. As many as 10 rapid response teams, 384 medical doctors and 456 nurses are working in the flood-affected places, he disclosed. Besides, a delegation led by the chief minister will go to Delhi seeking adequate supply of vaccine against HINI, which the Centre is procuring from abroad.

Helping hand
The Association of Bellary Mine Owners has decided to take up the responsibility of constructing houses for people rendered roofless in the floods in Bellary and Koppal districts. The Association would spend nearly Rs 600 crore on houses and other flood relief operations. Nearly 50 per cent of this amount is likely to come from the Reddy brothers of Bellary alone, sources said.
