HYDERABAD: In a second incident, reported within a span of few days, another junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in the city on Saturday by a patient’s relatives.
The latest incident took place at Niloufer Hospital where final year student, Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, was attacked by attendants of a patient allegedly for honking at them as they were blocking the exit of the ICU building.
Niloufer superintendent Dr Murali Krishna lodged a compliant with the Nampally police.
In his complaint, the superintendent stated: “Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, final year post graduate of paediatric department, was assaulted by attendants of patient Md Shafuddin on the hospital premises in the intensive care building ground floor. Requesting for necessary action against the accused.”
As per the complaint, the incident took place around 2 pm. The accused started abusing the doctor when he honked signalling at them to clear the way. The attendants opened the car door, hit the doctor in the face and tore his shirt. A female attendant also used abusive language against Reddy.
TOI’s attempts to reach Dr Reddy or the family involved in the incident for their comments failed to yield any result.
This comes close on the heels of the previous incident reported from the Government Chest Hospital where a junior doctor was assaulted, leading to unrest among the medical fraternity and boycott of duties. “We constantly work in fear of losing the confidence of the patient’s attendants and what consequences we will have to bear. If the public treats us this way, despite us working for 36 hours at a stretch and under stressful conditions, it’ll lead to trauma,” said a female junior doctor from the hospital.
Meanwhile, members of the Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA) said that these repeated incidents have led to many doctors slipping into depression. “Many doctors are now facing mental health issues due to the tremendous workload and shoddy treatment meted out to them by patients’ attendants,” said Dr Dharmula Sagar, president TJUDA.

Telangana bars reg of farmland less than 20 guntas | | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

Sources said developers hit upon this idea after making efforts to sell undivided share of land in unapproved layouts and unregistered venture projects with Telangana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to gullible buyers. (Picture used for representational purpose only)

HYDERABAD: The Telangana municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department has told the registration and stamps department not to register farmland or plots below 20 guntas (2,000 square metres).
The move comes after officials realised some property developers were registering open plots in illegal layouts in the name of ‘farm plots’. Unauthorised layout registration was banned by the state government in September 2020.
Sources said developers hit upon this idea after making efforts to sell undivided share of land in unapproved layouts and unregistered venture projects with Telangana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) to gullible buyers.
The developers were trying to take advantage of the fact that one does not need a layout copy to register agricultural land. “Besides stopping registration of farm plots below 20 guntas, we have also asked the registration department to insist on the layout copy if a farm plot abuts a new road,” MA&UD department principal secretary Arvind Kumar told STOI.
He said the decision to stop registration of plots in unauthorised layouts had paid dividends and the government was able to control illegal ventures across the state. The government banned registration of non-agriculture properties not having either a layout copy in case of open plots or a sanctioned plan in case of buildings.
Following this decision, thousands of layouts, which were developed without seeking approvals from the civic bodies, were stuck as layouts and plots could not be regularised under the layout regularisation scheme (LRS). Soon after banning illegal plots, 25 lakh applications were filed under the LRS, an official said.

PM Narendra Modi to IPS officers: Fight negative image | | Live Newspaper Hyderabad

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked Indian Police Service (IPS) probationers to strive for changing the negative image about police among the general public.
“There has been a negative perception among people about police and this is a challenge to police. During the pandemic, the perception changed after police reached out and helped the people in need. But now the old perception is back. Why is public confidence not improving when it comes to police?” Modi asked, virtually addressing IPS probationers of the 71st and 72nd batch of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), Hyderabad.
“For country’s security, implementation of law and during crushing terror, police give their life. This challenge to change the police image by ending the negative perception, now depends on you,’’ he said, comparing police with NDRF.
According to him, people have high respect for NDRF since they get confidence once they arrive during a calamity and that they risk their lives to save people.
The passing out parade for the 178 probationers, including 33 lady probationers, and 34 trainee officers from Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Mauritius would be held at NPA campus at Shirvrampalli on August 6.
Speaking about the challenges of cyber security and financial frauds, Modi said new research and experiments should be done and applied by police to avert the designs of criminals.
While addressing the trainee officers, Prime Minister Modi said that whether the trainee officers would change the system or the system would change them, would depend on them during their career.
“Whenever you are in field, whatever decisions you take, it must be in the country’s interest. You should always have the spirit of ‘Nation First, Always First’,’’ the PM said.
Modi said that the induction of more women into the police department would only strengthen the police force. Interacting with some of the trainee officers, PM Modi said that financial frauds, targeting of women and children by cyber criminals was a major challenge.
He also sought suggestions about what could be done to solve this issues by using technology.
Apart from doing their routine policing responsibilities, the PM suggested woman IPS trainees to occasionally visit local girl schools and interact with the students as it would motivate them to achieve their goals.

Help rain-hit farmers: A Revanth Reddy to Telangana CM K | Sidnaz Blog

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: Congress has demanded that the state government immediately do a total assessment of crop damage caused in the heavy rains and floods and give Rs 15,000 per acre towards compensation to farmers.
In a letter to chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday, Telangana Congress president A Revanth Reddy demanded that the CM shift his focus from Huzurabad bypoll and concentrate on extending help to the farmers who were in distress.
“You (CM) are willing to spend Rs 3,000 crore in Huzurabad to ensure TRS’s win in the by-election at any cost. It is unfortunate that you have not announced even Rs 1,000 crore support to the farmers for crop damages sustained in the rains,” Revanth said in the letter.
He asked the government to supply seeds, fertilisers and input subsidy to the farmers to go for sowing operations again. “The government should start paying the premium and ensure that the crop insurance scheme is extended to the farmers,” he said.

Hyderabad: Junior docs boycott duties for a day at Chest | Live Newspaper Hyderabad

[ad_1]

HYDERABAD: More than 100 doctors boycotted their duties at the Government Chest Hospital a day after a resident doctor was assaulted by relatives of a patient.
Though emergency services remained operational, regular patients experienced delays and many had to return home after waiting for a few hours.
The doctors called off their protest after an institutional FIR was lodged in the case and promises were made to book the culprits. They also demanded tight security and an end to VIP culture.
A junior doctor was assaulted on Sunday by the attenders of a patient, who was recommended by the hospital superintendent, claimed the doctors.
Angry protests rocked Government Chest Hospital in the city on Monday with over 100 doctors boycotting duties a day after a resident doctor was assaulted by relatives of a patient. The doctors later called off their protest after an institutional FIR was lodged in the case and promises made to book the culprits.
Junior doctor Krishnan N was hit on the face, chest and stomach on Sunday and has complained of pain. Angry over the assault of their colleague, dozens of doctors began a strike, leaving patients in the lurch. Though the emergency services remained operational, regular patients experienced a lot of delays and many had to return home after waiting for a few hours. “I had come for a follow-up of my father’s post Covid-19 issues. He has been suffering from breathing problems on and off. Only after we came here and waited for two hours did we get to know that there is a long queue and doctors are on protest,” said Rifat Bi, who had come from Mehdipatnam.
Another patient waiting in the queue, Radhikamma, who had come from Uppal, said, “The people who hit the doctors should be punished. They have ruined the relationship between patients and doctors. Today, doctors are not ready to see us. Where will we go?”
The protesting doctors raised slogans with placards saying ‘we treat patients equally’, ‘zero tolerance against violence’ and ‘we treat-…save the saviour’, while the senior doctors managed outpatient services with less than half the strength. The hospital has nearly 200 doctors in total of which over 100 had joined the protests and with just 50 doctors left for a shift, regular services were affected throughout the day.
Although a regular FIR was filed on Sunday, the doctors had demanded that an institutional FIR be lodged by the hospital so that stern punishment is handed out to the accused. “We demand that an institutional FIR be filed. The seven attendants who had assaulted the doctor yesterday were of a patient recommended by the superintendent,” said Dr Naresh, a representative of Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA), Chest Hospital.
The doctors also demanded tight security at the hospital and an end to VIP culture.
