LAKKI MARWAT Showing their anger and protesting over the non-availability of doctors at civil hospital in Tajori, the elders of four union councils of the district have announced to boycott anti-polio campaigns by not allowing health department teams to immunize children against the crippling disease. Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, former nazim Maulana Asghar Ali, bricks kiln association district chapter president Muhammad Salim, Awal Shah, Maulana Inamullah and others said that the health facility was escalated to the status of civil hospital in 2006 and since then it lacked doctors. The sanctioned posts of medical officers, dental surgeon and other physicians are vacant besides the medical equipment and machinery worth millions of rupees is going to be wasted as it could not be brought under use for the betterment and treatment of ailing residents of the area, they maintained. They told that they had withdrawn their decision of boycotting polio eradication campaign two weeks ago after being assured by the chief secretary Khyber Pakhtunkhwa about appointment of doctors in Tajori hospital. Following the directives of chief secretary the health department deputed six doctors with instructions to perform duty in Tajori civil hospital one by one every day, they informed. They said, It is not the permanent solution to the problem as only one or two out of six doctors bother to visit the hospital on their turn. They said that the most of the paramedics were not punctual and they often remained absent from duty. The elders demanded of the provincial government to order appointment of doctors and ensure presence/attendance of paramedics in the hospital. They said that the appointment of doctors would help bring machinery and medical equipment under use for the best interest of local people. They made it clear that residents of four union councils would be compelled to launch civil disobedience movement if their genuine demands were not fulfilled immediately.
