HYDERABAD: All India Congress Committee spokesperson Dasoju Sravan on Saturday demanded that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao immediately convert the 50-bed Urban Primary Health Centre (UPHC) at Khairatabad into a 100-bed Covid-19 hospital as it has all the facilities to treat coronavirus patients.
Sravan, who is also the Congress in charge for Khairatabad Assembly constituency, along with Secunderabad former MP Anjan Kumar Yadav and local leaders visited Khairatabad UPHC and highlighted the apathy of TRS government towards the hospital.
“CM KCR, during his visit to Warangal has announced that he will construct a hospital after demolishing Warangal central jail. He had earlier announced that the old dilapidated building of Osmania general hospital in Hyderabad would also be demolished but nothing has been done. CM KCR should first make use of the existing health infrastructure facilities to deliver Covid-19 treatment, as people are suffering severely due to lack of beds and advanced care facilities,” Sravan said.
The 50-bed UPHC at Khairatabad was constructed during former CM Kiran Kumar Reddy’s government in the undivided state. It has facilities like ECG and specialists like pulmonologist, radiologist, ophthalmologist, ENT specialist, senior physicians, nursing staff among others. But much to the agony of the local people, this hospital is being completely neglected and left idle. Only outpatient services are provided, he said.
Sravan also demanded that KT Rama Rao, who is heading the Covid-19 taskforce, should visit government hospitals to take stock of the facilities and turn them into Covid-19 hospitals and save people from the clutches of corporate hospitals.
