Srinagar: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today expressed shock over posting of Dr Saleem ur Rehman as Project Director of State AIDS Control Society who was removed from his position on corruption charges.
President DAK Dr Nisar ul Hassan in a statement said that governments tall claims of weeding out corruption have fallen flat by calling back tainted health official.
The present dispensations promise of sacking corrupt officials and replacing them by honest ones has turned to be hoax by recalling corrupt health official.
Dr Saleemur Rehman is involved in Drug Kits scam and the case is registered in police station vigilance organization Kashmir.
He is involved in supply of spurious drugs to government hospitals because of which precious human lives were lost.
He had turned health sector into an industry of corruption, favoritism and nepotism.
He should have been in jail but instead has been rewarded for his misdeeds which give us to understand that corruption is promoted at highest level.
Government is not serious in reviving premier health institutions of Government Medical College(GMC) Srinagar and Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences(SKIMS) Soura otherwise it would have removed Principal GMC and Director SKIMS who are responsible for deteriorating condition of these institutions.
Despite huge influx of public money into these institutions they are in complete shambles because of incompetence and corrupt practices of these health officials.
Poor patients suffer the consequences and are victims of mismanagement in these premier health institutions.
These tainted officials are a blot to the medical profession and have brought disgrace and disrepute to the whole medical fraternity.
Patients have lost faith and trust in these health institutions and are dissatisfied with the care they receive in these institutions.
