MS of Sopore hospital steps down

SRINAGAR: The medical superintendent of Mother and Childcare Hospital(MCH) in Sopore stepped down from his post on Wednesday alleging harassment from politically influential contractors lobby.
Dr Masood Ahmad, who is also block medical officer Sopore, asked director health services to relieve him from the post of medical superintendent of MCH.
Ahmad said that some construction works were in progress in the hospital about which he was being approached from different quarters.
“Some politically influential people often interfere in the ongoing works asking me to allot them the work. They abused me several times,” he said. He wanted the director health to assign the work to any other officer.
