Corruption in health sector can’t be tolerated: Lal Singh

‘Some greedy medicos use hospitals as poaching centres’

SRINAGAR, OCTOBER 31:- Minister for Health and Medical Education, ARI and Trainings, Choudhary Lal Singh Saturday said the government was going to act tough against the officials found indulging in corrupt practices in heath sector.

“Government won’t tolerate corrupt practices in health sector,” Mr Singh told jam-packed hall of medicos at the Annual Day function, of Government Medical College Srinagar at SKICC here.

“I have experienced that earlier hospital buildings were created for contractors, equipment used to be bought on commission basis and no one is bothered about the common masses,” he said.

Taking a dig at a minuscule of administrators and doctors in health sector, who Minister referred as “black sheep”, Lal Singh said that revamping health sector needs commitment from the medical fraternity.

“Hospitals have become poaching centres for some medicos. They come, register their attendance and leave for their private clinics and also divert patients to their clinics irrespective of economic status,” he said.
