From a Correspondent

Tezpur, Feb 2: The historic Tezpur  Kaklata Civil Hospital and  Chandra th  Lakhidhar  Memorial  Chest Hospital (CLM) located in the Ouguri hill are facing problems in providing free food to the admitted patients since the last two days due to non-regularization of  bills  against the supply materials to the contractors.

According to official sources, the medical patients always get free food in the hospital twice along with breakfast. But the contractors have been uble to provide the food since the last two days because they have not got payment since the last seven months for supply of food materials.

Jury Bhattacharya, Joint Director of Health, Tezpur, while talking to this correspondent, said that on Wednesday the supplier suddenly stopped the supply materials and the hospital authority maged food from hospital account for both hospitals. She further said it was due to non-approval of budget during the last seven months for the hospital.

In Tezpur  Kaklata Civil Hospital  located in the heart of the  town, there are more than 100 patients in the  general wards and CLM TB  Hospital has more than 50 patients admitted.
