IMPHAL, April 18: The Anal Students’ Forum, Manipur has said in a press release that the staff under NRHM Chandel have been devoid of their salaries since January 2013 and that despite the arrears for 1 year for all the employees under NRHM being sanctioned to all the Districts staff, the employees of Chandel are not getting the same till date.
It said, the condition of District Mobile Medical unit ambulance is pathetic and there is no proper maintenance in spite of the sanction of more than Rs 1 lakh/yr by the Central govt.
The statement has also said that the district has not released the 2nd Instalment to all the Blocks for the financial year 2012-13 when the said financial year has already been gone which has definitely hampered the proper implementation of NRHM at the lower level.
Continuing its complain, it said “The condition of the road at the entry point from Chandel Christian to district hospital is pathetic and needs urgent repairing”.
It has also complained of the non-availability of specialists in the lone district hospital and the absence of permanent CMO and further demanded that proper facilities should be provided to the Chakpikarong CHC as per the Indian Public Health Standard (IPHS).
