Corruption racket in Hospitals of Jammu

Narbat Banjara, a resident of Bantalab, Jammu and originally belonging to Madhya Pradesh complained about a corruption racket in Government Hospital Sarwal. According to him, he was asked for extra money from the Hospital staff.Narbat said “I called the ambulance last night. It arrived, but for someone else. Doctors had been delaying the delivery date since long. My wife delivered the baby boy at home itself. We went to Sarwal Hospital. The Hospital staff demanded extra money from me for cleaning. I offered them 10-20 rupees but they refused.”

“I am a poor man. I work as a mason and earn 450 rupees per day. Sometimes I take leave to take care of my wife and kids and my salary gets cut. With difficulty I run my house, how will I pay extra to the staff?” He addedArjun Singh, Contractor of Narbat said that Hospital staff had been doing this since long. Asking extra money from patients is a sort of corruption.

“He’s working under me since 1-1.5 years. He called me in the morning at 8:30 and informed about his son. Then again called at 10:30 informing about the extra money the staff was demanding. I rushed to the Hospital but the nurses had run away. The staff excused that they are poor and demand extra money. How come a person a poor if he/she has a government job? And if they need money let them ask the Government. Why trouble a poor man?” Arjun said

Asking money from poor people as a token of happiness isn’t justified. The hard earned money cannot help others if one’s needs aren’t fulfilled.
