POONCH, Dec 6: The illegal parking on the road leading to the Sub District Hospital, Mendhar and even inside the Complex is causing great inconvenience to the ambulance services during an emergency, while the patients and their attendants and staff are left to suffer.
BMO Mendhar, Dr Parvaiz Khan said that the illegally parked vehicles in front of the hospital gate are causing problems to the patients.
“The road leading to the hospital has a Police Station, Revenue Complex around it,” he said adding that a large number of people and vehicles come every day due to which it causes nuisance and great inconvenience to the general public.
A social worker MR Kazafi said that due to large number of vehicles being parked alongside the road even at times of emergency, patients have to face severe traffic mess before reaching to their destination.
Dr Parvaiz said that this area should be declared as no parking zone. Separate space should be provided by the Administration for the parking and a few cops be deputed for managing traffic in the area. Otherwise, somebody might face tragedy in terms of life as an ambulance would not be able to pass through the choked road. The residents too appealed concerned authorities to resolve their problem at the earliest, he said.
