Bhopal: Unhappy with the medical services
being provided at the Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research
Centre (BMHRC), survivors of Bhopal gas tragedy today staged a
protest in the BMHRC premises near here and sought resignation
of its Chairman, former Chief Justice of India A H Ahmadi.
The protesters, mainly women, led by the Bhopal Gas
Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan (BGPMUS) - an NGO working for
survivors of the tragedy, held placards seeking former Chief
Justice of India (CJI) Ahmadi`s resignation from BMHRC.
"The BMHRC was formed to provide treatment to the
survivors but it is doing precious little for them," BGPMUS
convenor Abdul Jabbar said.
Six out of around 16 departments in BMHRC have become
non-functional. Besides, there is a dearth of staff in it, he
"Every day a patient`s death is being reported from BMHRC
which is very disturbing," Jabbar said.
"The BMHRC is in a bad shape and it needs to be improved
in the interest of the Bhopal Gas Tragedy victims," he said
adding that Ahmadi should resign immediately to pave way for
bringing in a change in the hospital`s management.
