KAILASHAHAR, March 19 (TIWN): Negligence of State Government of Tripura again came into focus at Kailasahar Sub-Division at Unakoti district. A ten bedded Primary health centre at Murai Bari waiting for inauguration even after the six months of the Construction. However, Health Minister, Badal Chowdhury on a visit told that due to the non supply of power supply and water supply, the inauguration cannot be made possible in due time.

Sources informed that a ten bedded primary health centre was constructed in the year 2009. The estimated amount for the construction is sorted out to be 5 crore.  But not yet, it was donated for the service of the local people. It is to be mention that nearly 10,000 habitants live in the area. Among them 80 percent are tribals. In the meantime, the people of the seven village committees and Panchayats demands that if PHC is opened, it would be helpful for all the people living in the areas of Debraj Cherra, Bhagan Nagar, Unakoti and other remotest villages. At the same time, they aklso demands a quarter should also be prepared, so that doctors and nurses on the duty shall reside there to present in 24hrs service.

Though the State Government claims that they will make a special provision for establishment of primary health centres in the tribal ­dominated regions in the State, considered remote and geographically difficult to access. At the same time is planning to set up 15 Primary Health Centers (PHC). “Through the special budgetary provisions, the State Government is planning to strengthen the infrastructure for reaching out to the most underprivileged tribal people and resolve the issue of shortage of doctors and para­medical staff in hospitals,” said an health department official requesting anonymity. Each PHC will be ten bedded and Rs 120 crore will be required for establishing. But the picture revelas vice versa.

While, the State Government, despite of the infrastructure development, busy in scam politics. Though officially Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and CPIM State Secretary Bijan Dhar have denied any involvement of CPI(M) party and its 'Brand man' Manik Sarkar in these scams or any of the accused persons, recent activities clearly send the message that State Govt is highly concerned about all that are going on. Putting the blame on opposition and media and terming the discoveries of multirole scams in different departments as the effort of 'Imperialists' may give the ruling party and its so called 'Brand Manik' dividends in casting votes in the rural belts; But the power of truth is such that, someday it spills out spontaneously and no ruler however powerful cannot suppress truth. It is to be mention that in Tripura there are 84 PHC, 992 health sub centres and 18 community centres,

 So now question is....what is important to Government ? A formal inauguration, ribbon cutting drama is important  or providing healthcare is important to the dumbheads in Tripura's Ministry ???
