Silchar: The plight of people residing in and around Jirighat area is deeply saddening. People, particularly patients, are suffering a lot owing to the absence or lack of doctors at Jirighat mini hospital. People have been suffering from a long time as they have to go to Lakhipur for getting treatment even for a simple ailment. The plight of emergency patients needs no formal narrative to describe and discuss. Pregnant women, emergency patients, children and aged patients are the worst hits. Dr Y Kishore Singh, SDMO, has urged upon the joint director of health services and the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar to take necessary action so that the people of Jirighat no longer have to suffer. The transportation cost from Jirighat to Lakhimpur is also very high and it becomes difficult for poor patients to afford it.
