IMPHAL, July 31: The United NGOs Mission Manipur has today demanded the authorities to announce the names of the seven government doctors under investigation for working in private clinics.
UNMM secretary, U Nobokishore demanded that the names of the doctors who are earning extra by working in the private clinic although they are getting non-practising allowance, should be made public.
During a press meet convened today at the Manipur Press Club, he said that the United NGOs Mission Manipur deeply condoles the death of Wangkhem (o) Eliza, wife of W Dinachandra of Langol Ningthou, Imphal West at Shija Hospital on July 14.
He sought constitution of an enquiry commission into Eliza’s death, and further appealed to the Governor to divulge the action taken report after his recent visit to RIMS.
Nobokishore said Eliza was moved to Shija hospital after developing complications due to acute failure of sensitive body organs including the kidney, because of negligence on the part of RIMS doctors who treated her.
She was shifted to Shija Hospital in a very critical condition, he said.
He said the UNMM acknowledges and appreciates the doctors and nurses of the private hospital for their cooperation and help in trying to save Eliza’s life.
Although the organisation appreciates the courage of a particular doctor identified as Doctor Trinity of the RIMS Gynaecology department who had visited the office of an NGO and clarified that he had not committed any mistakes in treating Eliza at RIMS, the UNMM cannot take lightly the negligence on the part of the RIMS doctors during the treatment of W Eliza, Nobokishore said.
The United NGOs Mission Manipur has also strongly condemned the reported sexual assault of girl players by their coach and demanded the Centre’s intervention in the case.
Speaking to the media during a press conference, secretary U Nobokishore demanded constituting a special investigation team, comprising of a Judge of the Supreme Court, police and other special pertinent bureaucratic officers, headed by the judge to investigate the whole functioning of the SAI, Imphal.
He further demanded termination of all staff found involved in the sexual violence and corruption.
He said the UNMM was deeply shocked to hear about the sexual assault of the girls by the staff/coach of SAI, Takyelpat.
He said that it is not the first time that such crime has been reported in the State.
Such crimes happen frequently throughout the entire nation, he said while asserting that the UNMM’s vision is to see many more sportsperson from the State shine in the international fields, however, there is a lot of corruption and other problems which needs immediate cleaning.
