In a statement issued on Friday, Dr Shazad said the government should issue a white paper on health facilities available in different health institutions of the border district along with shortage of doctors and other paramedical staff there. He said most of the primary health centers in the district do not have sanctioned strength of doctors allied staff nor do they have necessary healthcare machinery including X-rays , ECGs, Operation theaters, Stretchers, wheelchairs. He also highlighted the shortage of smart ambulances and even drivers. The BADC Chairperson said that despite liberal funding by the government of India for providing health facilities for border areas, the official apathy of Baabus is the biggest hurdle in providing relief to the people of these areas.
