Ailing Healthcare in Valley Needs a Revamp

Apropos opinion, “Ailing health care system of the valley, Kashmir Observer, May 12 by Sameena Nazir, I would like to congratulate the author as she has rightly said that the people of Kashmir have every right to live a happy and a healthy life.

The ailing healthcare system in the valley needs a revamp and the higher ups should take immediate steps, otherwise the day is not far, when we had to move to other states to treat ourselves.

The medical facilities in and around the Srinagar city have turned into the business ventures. There is a dearth of dedicated medicos who can do any justice to poor and ailing Kashmiris. Some of the so-called doctors, not to mention any of the names here have turned this noble profession into a high profile inventory of theirs. What a shame!

It is high time for the state government to take some immediate steps, so that the common masses can be saved at the hands of these 'butchers', who don't have any emotions for others.

There is also a lot of equipment lying in the store rooms of our 'esteemed' SKIMS facility, but what a mess, nobody can operate those machines well. The machines have been brought to Kashmir valley by some blue eyed persons, who have made so much of money out of that.

In the state administration, most of the officers are corrupt and there is no one who can stop this corruption. So many so-called programmes are being announced day in and day out, but nothing substantial comes out. It is the sad state of affairs; the Kashmiris have been left at the helm of these dishonest officers who have made the living of a common Kashmiri a hell.
