The government has been making efforts to ensure better treatment to the people in Jammu & Kashmir by coming up with different schemes and initiatives so that the poor people are not pushed to the wall. However, some of the doctors with the vested interests are out to bulldoze the government’s efforts by one way or the other. The people, who usually could have preferred to visit the government hospitals for treatment, are being forced to visit the private clinics and hospitals as these doctors, who remain available in the government-run-hospitals, don’t ensure proper care to them. One fails to understand why it has become necessary for the patients to visit the doctors at private clinics or the hospitals when they remain available in the government hospitals as well. Such an issue is a worrisome as it is only playing a spoilsport and also putting brakes over the efforts of the government with regard to improving the healthcare in Jammu & Kashmir. From villages to towns to cities, such a situation is being witnessed everywhere, but unfortunately; the government is tightlipped over the happenings, thus pushing the people to the wall. In such a situation, the government should at the highest level come up with a committee to identify all such doctors and ensure a strict action against them, so that the patients belonging to the downtrodden section of the society are not pushed to the wall in any manner.
