SKIMS Controversy: Opposition corners Govt, stages walk out

Resolve issue on priority basis: Dy Speaker tells Govt


Srinagar, Jan 11 (KNS): The opposition members on Thursday staged walk out over the raging controversy over SKIMS Soura.
According to the KNS correspondent, the opposition leaders including NC MLA Mian Altaf, MLA Langate, Er Rasheed pressed on speaker Kavinder Gupta to direct government to debate over the issue of removal of Prof A G hanger as Director SKIMS a few days ago.
“SKIMS sub ki property hai, man maani nahi chalay gi,” MLA Kangan Mian Altaf told the house.
The government said that the Emergency department and the OPD sections of SKIMS were smoothly functioning. However, this didn't satisfy the Opposition who continued to yell at the health minister.
“The doctors are on strike,” Altaf said, “patients coming from far-away places are not being admitted while as Surgery department is defunct.”
The opposition members walked in to well and later staged walk-out at around 10:52 am.
Later, the Deputy Speaker directed the government to look into the priority and resolve the standoff at the premier institute. (KNS)
