Kurseong TMC unit complains about ‘pathetic’ Kurseong hospital

Kurseong : A team of hill TMC members led by the party’s Kurseong sub-division convener Kundan Mangrati served a deputation to Kurseong sub-divisional medical officer Rumi Mondal protesting against the pathetic condition of Kurseong hospital. The deputation has highlighted various problems faced by the hospital, including shortage of doctors and technicians and insufficient supply of medicine and diet, among others. Mondal assured them their grievances and demands will be forwarded to higher authorities of the GTA and the state government. Talking to reporters, Mangrati said Kurseong hospital is functioning for more than four years without experts including general surgeon, orthopedic surgeon, skin specialist, eye surgeon, physiotherapist, child specialist, ENT and pathologist, to name a few. 

He said that it is really unfortunate that the authorities concerned have still failed to resolve the problems not filling up the shortage of doctors and other employees. Mangrati added due to shortage of doctors, people have been facing various problems and have to visit medical institutions in Siliguri even for a minor surgery or treatment. TMC Kurseong town convener Pemba Zimba added in the face of the changing political scenario in the Darjeeling hills, various ‘public interest’ related issues are being ignored. He said legendary figures such as Fr. Abraham, Dr. Kumar and Dr. Haldar have made Kurseong their home and lived their entire lives here serving the people loving and passionately without caring for personal benefits. But today, the ones responsible for healthcare seem to ignore even the basic problems of public interest.
