FROM A REPORTER
SHILLONG, Aug 9: The Bharatia Jata Party (BJP), Mawsynram Mandal on Tuesday alleged that one doctor has been drawing salary from CHC Mawsynram while she is working at CHC Mawphlang for the past two years.
In this connection a delegation of BJP members led by Kesborly Kharbani vice president East Khasi Hills met Health Minister A. L Hek demanding the immediate transfer of Dr. C Sohkhia from Mawphlang CHC back to Mawsynram CHC.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting with the Minister, Kharbani said that the Health Minister had assured them that the matter will be looked into and had also asked them for a one week time period to resolve the issue.
“The strength of the CHC should be 4 doctors but right now there are only three doctors and one Doctor (C Sohkhia) for the past 2 years has been drawing his salary from Mawsynram CHC while giving her services to Mawphlang CHC and we have requested the Health Minister that at any cost the Doctor should be re-transferred in order to give her services to the people at Mawsynram,” he said.
