SADIQABAD-The main entrance of Tehsil Headquarters Hospital (THQ) has been turned into a rickshaw stand, causing problems for the patients and visitors.

According to visiting patients, rickshaw drivers keep their rickshaws park in front of the main entrance of the THQ hospital the whole day. They said that the practice causes severe problems for ambulances to shift patients to and from the hospital as most of their time get wasted wading through rickshaws line up at the entrance, making movement virtually impossible. They demanded the Tehsil Municipal Administration to order the officials concerned to ban rickshaw parking or stand at the main entrance of the hospital.
