CSFK condemns delay in new pediatric hospital

SRINAGAR: Civil Society Forum Kashmir (CSFK) Friday castigated the government for delay in construction of a new pediatric hospital in the Valley.
“About 700 days have passed since New Delhi’s health ministry and the state government made an announcement about establishing a new 300-bedded child health institute in Srinagar. Two years later, the proposal is yet to be drafted,” it said in a statement issued here.
It said the delay “amply demonstrates the lack of political will, administrative inertia, red-tape, regional-bias, and ignorance” towards providing better healthcare to children of the Valley.
