Dengue spread tentacles, 68 cases reported so far 21.10.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Bathinda, October 20 Despite tall claims by the district Health Department on preparedness to deal with dengue, the number of dengue patients is continuously rising at the Bhai Mani Singh Civil Hospital. As per the Civil Hospital record, 68 cases of dengue patients have been registered at the hospital till date. It is pertinent to mention that although the district Health Department has made it mandatory to all the private health institutions of the district to submit their report regarding dengue cases to the district Civil Hospital, no private hospital has submitted the report of dengue patients to the government hospital till date. In addition, due to the inappropriate functioning of the community health centres and sub-divisional hospitals, patients at times are not reported. As a result, on government documents only 68 dengue patients have been registered so far otherwise the count of dengue patients would definitely be more. Moreover, in recent times as per the reports ...

Rangila Ram rebels against Congress in Sarkaghat 21.10.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Mandi, October 20 Disgruntled senior Congress leader Rangila Ram Rao rebelled against the party in Sarkaghat after the high command denied him ticket. The Congress has fielded Pawan Thakur from Sarkaghat because Rangila Ram Rao lost elections to BJP candidate Inder Singh two times in 2007 and 2012. Rao convened a meeting of his supporters today to chalk out a strategy to pressure the high command. He threatened to contest as an independent candidate. Rangila Ram Rao is considered close to Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, who is also the political adviser to the Chief Minister, while Pawan Thakur is considered close to Health Minister Kaul Singh Thakur.

Cong iffy in Bharmour, Churah happy with BJP 21.10.2017 The Tribune
Bharmour TS Bharmouri vs Jiya Lal Despite having enjoyed unbridled power in the last five years as Forest Minister in the Virbhadra regime, Thakur Singh Bharmouri, who represents the Bharmour tribal constituency, could face anti-incumbency and charge of nepotism. Seventy-year-old Bharmouri had been on the target of the Opposition that blamed him for various scams in the Forest Department. Despite the fact that Bharmouri had enjoyed absolute power, poor condition of roads, poor connectivity of rural areas and lack of health facilities continued to plague his constituency, causing resentment among voters. A former joint director of the Public Relations Department, Bharmouri is a staunch Virbhadra loyalist and had a complete say in the government. However, with the Forest Department remaining in one controversy or the other, Bharmouri's performance remained questionable. The BJP has fielded Jiya Lal who lost the last election to Bharmouri. Again it will be a fight between the old rivals. However, Jiya Lal ...

State faces healthcare crisis 21.10.2017 The Tribune
Arteev Sharma and Sumit Hakhoo Tribune News Service Jammu, October 20 In a sharp contrast to the ruling PDP-BJP government’s boastful claims of “rapidly improving health sector” in the state, Jammu and Kashmir continues to face a major healthcare crisis with many ills plaguing government-run hospitals in urban as well as rural areas. Nothing has changed considerably on the ground since the PDP-BJP government took reins of the state. The state government has even failed to attract private players to the healthcare sector in the past three years. “From the shortage of doctors and paramedics to lack of resources, the government hospitals represent a sorry state of affairs. Despite billions having been invested in the sector since 2005, the system is falling apart as a majority of the patients are forced to travel outside the state for specialist treatment,” said a senior faculty member posted at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Jammu, requesting anonymity. The only two major claimed ...

Health Minister Anil Vij today jumped into the Taj Mahal controversy and described the monument as a beautiful cemetery.
