CM Distributes KCR Kits
Hyderabad: Since the services in the government hospitals are improving, the demand for services is increasing, opined Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR). As part of three years of Telangana Statehood celebrations, he launched KCR Kits distribution programme at Government Maternity Hospital in Petlaburj, on Saturday. The Kits were distributed to six women, who very recently delivered at the hospital.
“This is dense area and poor people live here and hence there will be a demand to make use of the hospital facility when needed. With Shortage of beds and with an increase in demand it is struggling like a war. One should thank the doctors for allowing extra patients over and above bed strength,” he observed.
Against bed strength of 462 in this hospital the demand is for over 700 which is a proof of its good work and very good name, he said.
“We are doing service to humanity. Still, sometimes media carry negative news particularly with reference to non-availability of beds. Probably a public relation exercise may undo this sort of negative publicity,” the CM suggested.
Earlier CM visited photo exhibition and inspected ultrasound centre, emergency ward, general wards, the stabilisation centre for the complicated case, the recovery room and other facilities in the hospital.
The CM is accompanied by Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya, Deputy Chief Minister Mehmood Ali, Ministers Naini Narasimha Reddy, Laxmareddy, MLA Khadri, Chief Secretary SP Singh, Health Secretary Rajeshwar Tiwari, Commissioner family welfare Karuna among others.
