Palampur, May 12
President of the District Congress Committee, Kangra, Ajay Mahajan today urged Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur to ensure timely treatment to non-Covid patients in the state.
He said because of the pandemic, patients suffering from other diseases were facing delay in getting proper treatment. They were not being attended at most hospitals, including the Tanda medical college.
Addressing mediapersons, he said that Tanda medical college is one of the biggest medical institutes in the lower hills of the state, which catered to one third population of the state.
He alleged that amid the surge in the cases, the medical college had stopped seeing critical patients suffering from other serious ailments such as cancer. The hospital had discontinued radiotherapy and chemotherapy in its oncology department, adversely affecting the health of patients.
Mahajan urged the state government to immediately restore other medical services. — OC
