Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Leader and former chairman sanitation committee of JMC Baldev Singh Billawaria has expressed concern and dismay at the transfer of 28 health workers from Gangyal Hospital in Ward Number 56 of RS Pura- Jammu South Assembly Constituency.

Bilawaria while addressing a Press Conference at Gangyal this morning condemned the authorities of Health department of Jammu and Kashmir government for withdrawing Medical facilities for people from Gangyal hospital where virtually locks have been put and people are allowed to suffer, he said.


Bilawaria said that on the one hand administration in Jammu and Kashmir claims that health facilities in the Union Territory are being improved and greater infrastructure for better services to the people are being added, on the other hand, bureaucracy in J&K is bent upon denying basic health facilities to the people.

Bilawaria stated that Gangyal Hospital was inaugurated last year by Lt Gov Manoj Sinha and this hospital has the unique distinction of successfully conducting spine surgery. Bilawaria said that it is astonishing that staff of Gangyal Hospital has been shifted as a result of which patients numbering about 300 every day are deliberately being  denied OPD Facilities and allowed to suffer. He also said that at the time of inauguration he had personally appealed to the LG for upgrading this hospital to district level in due course of time so as to provide better health care to the people of RS Pura. Bilawaria hoped that Lt Gov would take cognizance of this aspect of grave problem afflicting people at the earliest.
