Excelsior Correspondent

UDHAMPUR, Sept 26: National Panthers Party (NPP) today staged a protest against PDP-BJP coalition Government for poor health services in the District Hospital (DH) Udhampur and lack of doctors and other staff in the hospital.

Led by State party president, Balwant Singh Mankotia, the activists of NPP burnt the effigy of Minister of State (MoS) for Finance and Information Technology, Pawan Gupta and raised slogans against him as well as State Government.

While addressing the protesting activists of NPP, Mankotia said that it is unfortunate that State coalition Government is proving anti-people Government, which has failed to deliver even basic facilities to the common masses.

He disclosed that 21 posts of doctors are lying vacant in District Hospital Udhampur due to which the patients are bound to go to Government Medical College and Hospital for various health related problems.

While criticizing the MoS Pawan Gupta, Mankotia said that being MLA of Udhampur and MoS in State Government, he has failed to serve the people of his constituency.

Mankotia threatened the State Government to launch a big agitation if the authorities failed to fulfill the vacant posts of doctors in the District hospital and redress the problems of the patients within 15 days.

Later the protesters in the form of a rally reached the office of Deputy Commissioner Udhampur after passing through main markets of the town and demonstrated against the poor health services rendered to the patients by the District Hospital, Udhampur.
