Resident doctors of Telangana have threatened to halt healthcare services in the state if no action is taken in the so-called “Nakshatra Hospital Registration Fraud Case”. The Nakshatra Hospital in Kothur, Ranga Reddy district, was, say the doctors, being run a doctor without proper qualifications.
This was revealed recently by Dr Yenugu Chandrakanth Reddy whose MBBS degree was allegedly misused by the management of Nakshatra Hospital for running the hospital, without his consent. Dr Reddy had alleged that the management of the hospital paid bribe for running the hospital.
The Telangana Junior United Doctors Association (TJUDA), in a letter to the Director, Dr Yogita Rana, Commissionerate of Health and Family Welfare, Telangana, have demanded the suspension of Deputy DM & HO and demanded that a high level panel investigate the case.
The doctors have alleged that the Dy DM & HO abused Dr Reddy on whose complaints the police approached him to inquire about the case.
The doctors said that Dr Naik used foul language and threatened Dr Reddy with dire consequences for approaching the police directly without intimating the DM & HO.
The doctors said that they have attached recordings of the conversation between Dr Chandrakanth and Dr Naik.
“We request you to immediately suspend Dr Naik and constitute a high level enquiry panel to investigate the case and also to find out any such fake registered hospital in Ranga Reddy district. If no serious action is taken on concerned person and high level enquiry committee appointed, TJUDA will go for indefinite strike in public health interest,” reads the TJUDA letter to Dr Rana.
