Many scams have come out from all over the country in the corona pandemic, and now a scam from Srinagar is coming into the limelight. A few days back, 27 mobile ventilators were purchased in Srinagar, but only two ventilators were brought into use by the hospital administration. Yesterday another scam of 3 crore rupees in SKIMS hospital came out.
As per our Senior executive, in the internal inquiry at SKIMS, it was found that instead of purchasing ventilators, the hospital administration has purchased mobile ventilators. As per the records, the hospital authority sent a letter to LG J&K in which it was mentioned when the second wave of Corona hit J&K at that time; a 50-bed ward was set up in SKIMS. Instead of purchasing 50 beds, the authorities purchased 200 beds. On 29th April, the SKIMS administration issued notification of the availability of beds, but the administration already dumped these beds in the hospital on 15th April. Apart from this, the hospital administration purchased wardrobes with these beds. Later the beds didn’t stand out on the parameters.”
Till now, no inquiry has been made by the LG, but soon he’ll be looking into the matter. As per the sources, the ministers in Delhi are pressurizing the J&K administration to sideline the scam.
