Outlandish! Health block Mandi seems to have two BMO’s; Employees feel humiliation
POONCH TODAY NEWS
POONCH: There is a famous Poonchi saying “Maal malkan na mashoori company ni” and the same is happening in health block Mandi where real administration on the ground is being run by a doctor, who, reportedly is close relative of BMO Mandi. Sources within the department told “POONCH TODAY” wishing anonymity that close relative of BMO Mandi, who was posted in health block Surankote managed his posting in SDH Mandi and has started running administrative affairs, because, BMO is not well experienced to deal with administrative matters. Even, the staff members of SDH Mandi and other health employees are feeling humiliation when the said doctor starts behaving as BMO in place of real BMO Mandi. He has been dictating terms in the block, said sources. It is pertinent to mention here that massive loot was reported in the office of BMO Mandi over the years as funds worth several lacs under various central sponsored schemes were misused by those who were at the helm of affairs, but no inquiry was ever ordered by the government. Even, COVID funds and funds under Ayusman Bharat are being misused brazenly. Now, the question is when BMO Mandi cannot run administration on her own, then on what basis she was awarded with appreciation certificate by district administration few months ago. It shows that entire system of health department Mandi is collapsed internally, that’s why a doctor who was posted in Surankote managed his transfer to SDH Mandi and is running the administrative affairs of block on behalf of BMO Mandi and this irks many employees of health department who come under health Mandi block. Who will initiate enquiry into the matter? Right now, the health department Poonch is not in proper hands and those, who are known for massive corrupt practices over the years, are running the department from top. Absence of big brains in Health Department Poonch is a big worry for the future as the administrative system seems to be on ventilator as corruption and mismanagement has become order of the day in entire department. Will government address the issue of administrative lacunas of SDH Mandi in particular and the office of CMO Poonch and M.S Raja Sukhdev Singh hospital in general? Only time will tell.
