Hyderabad | 3rd September 2019
In the wake of sudden spurt in viral fevers in the State, Telangana Congress leaders led by Congress Legislature Party leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka on Tuesday criticized the State government for "its failure to provide basic amenities in any of the government hospitals in the State".

Bhatti also alleged that the State government was not taking any steps to remedy the situation despite the State turning into "the capital of viral fevers".

Speaking after inspecting the Mulug district government hospital along with MLAs D Sridhar Babu, Seetakka and Posen Veeraiah and others, Bhatti alleged that though the State government had declared the Mulugu area hospital as a district hospital, it hadn't provided the requisite amenities.

The CLP leader said as against the norm of 250 beds for a district hospital, the Mulug government hospital had only 100 beds. He also said that they were shocked to hear from the pharmacy officials that the hospital was in fact just a 50-bed hospital as per records.

He also complained that as against the mandated strength of seven deputy civil surgeons, the hospital had only one doctor, and as against the mandated 27 civil assistant surgeons, the hospital had only 11 doctors.

He demanded that the government immediately fill vacant posts of doctors and paramedical staff to start with.

Bhatti claimed that the TRS government in general continued to be in deep slumber despite the pathetic condition of the health sector, and that it had not allotted a single rupee for the hospitals in the State.

Separately, senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao alleged that Fever Hospital and Osmania General Hospital were filled with patients suffering from viral fevers, and that the problems of the patients were countless due to the lack of facilities at these government hospitals.

VHR said that there was no proper infrastructure for medical tests in the hospitals, or the requisite number of staff to serve the patients.

He alleged that CM KCR was bothered only about the Kaleswaram lift irrigation project, and said that he would urge the new Governor to visit the Osmania General Hospital.
