Decision to shift dispensary to gurdwara decried

Jalandhar, Punjab: The issue of shifting of a Red Cross Family Welfare Centre to a gurdwara in Central Town gathered another controversy with its management lodging a strong objection to it here today.

The gurdwara management has raised a strong objection to shifting of the dispensary to Gurdwara Diwan Asthan, Central Town, by the district Health Department.

The gurdwara management today issued a press note saying that the decision was not acceptable to it.

Earlier in the day, the Civil Surgeon, Dr RL Bassan, claimed that the dispensary issue was resolved with the department getting adequate and suitable space for running the dispensary from Gurdwara Diwan Asthan, Central Town.

Residents of Central Town and surrounding areas have been protesting against the move of the Health Department to shift the dispensary from the area in an effort to benefit a politically well-connected “land mafia” for the past over a month.
