The fresh strain of COVID-19 pandemic spreading fast in Kashmir than Jammu for over a fortnight now is not getting the required attention from the Jammu & Kashmir Government despite growning demand for uniformity in the covid control trategy . Shockingly not even a single responsible government functionary bothers to utter even a single word against the failure of the covid health care system in valley hospitals. Had the covid health care system failed to control the pandemic in Jammu region under a muslim chief minister headed popular government in Jammu & Kashmir, the BJP’s parliament members of the twin Lok Sabha constituencies of Jammu region would have come out on roads against the Jammu & Kashmir Government just for deriving political mileages from even the health safety issues of the people. Interestingly Omar Abdullah the National Conference Vice President and former Chief Minister despite his engagement with the covid treatment of his father Farooq Abdullah has raised an alarm over the lack of uniformity in covid health care policy of the government but no government functionary responds to the allegations of the ailing health care system and crumbling covid health care facilities in Kashmir valley particularly the Budgam and Ganderbal districts of central Kashmir. The issue not attracting the attention of the government is that in Budgam and Ganderbal districts most of the doctors have been left untouched by the government for years together and instead of shifting them to other districts the government has surprisingly assigned them special charge of covid care facility centres. Though allegations are galore that doctors holding the charges of covid care facility centres in Srinagar, Budgam and Ganderbal districts are not even asked to present monthly accounts of the money spent on covid care facilities in their respective covid care facility centres since last more than one year, but none from the leading regional mainstream parties has bothered even to raise questions on the crumbling covid care facilities in any one of the three central Kashmir districts- Budgam, Ganderbal and Srinagar.
Silence of the mainstream parties over the failure of covid care facilities in Budgam , Ganderbal and Srinagar districts is highly objectionable and they owe lot of explanations to people of Kashmir for not speaking against the authorities misusing covid care health centres just for pecuniary benefits .
Unfortunately the health department in Kashmir is run by raw hands who do not bother to reply even the public queries on the failures of covid care health facilities in government run hospitals. Silence of the mainstream parties over the failure of covid care facilities in Budgam , Ganderbal and Srinagar districts is highly objectionable and they owe lot of explanations to people of Kashmir for not speaking against the authorities misusing covid care health centres just for pecuniary benefits .
