PGI Chandigarh proved boon for Punjab and neighbouring states: Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Singh

Chandigarh: “Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, PGI Chandigarh, was the vision of first Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru and former Punjab Chief Minister Partap Singh Kairon and it has proven a great boon for patients not only from Punjab but also for all the neighbouring states,” said Punjab assembly speaker Rana K P Singh recently.

Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker Rana KP Singh was the chief guest of the ‘2nd International Conference on Ascites’ organized by the Department of Hepatology at the institute.

Inaugurating the ‘2nd International Conference on Ascites’ organised by the Department of Hepatology at PGI Chandigarh, Rana K P Singh said,” liver diseases are very common nowadays and liver cirrhosis has emerged as a major cause of concern. Cirrhosis is an end-stage manifestation following long and over-consumption of alcohol, use of drugs, hepatitis B and C. “

He expressed hope that the conference would go a long way to find new and easy treatments for complex liver diseases and sensitize people about them.

He said these days the PGI Chandigarh is overburdened and doctors of the institute working beyond their official duty hours. They are providing round the clock best health care to the patients. To overcome this burden, he said, there is an urgent need to further strengthen the peripheral health care system so that PGI Chandigarh doctors can find more time to deal with serious diseases.

Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had been very kind to this part of the country by giving us state-of-the-art Tata Cancer Centre, which shall be soon functional and will reduce the burden on the PGI Chandigarh Cancer Department, he added.

Expressing happiness over the opening of the institute’s new OPD services at Sarangpur, Rana KP Singh said during the routine meetings with Punjab Governor, he always raised his voice in favour of PGI Chandigarh to provide land to it at the nominal rates.

Patting Prof Virendra Singh, Organizing Secretary of Conference, the Speaker said Prof Virendra has conducted first hand and extensive surveys in Punjab jail inmates on the prevalence of hepatitis and cirrhosis in them. He also trained a large number of PCMS doctors to treat jail inmates and patients across the state. He extended every possible support in doing a more extensive survey and rigorous treatment for cirrhosis patients.

    ON THE OTHER HAND THERE ARE SOME LOUSY MEDICAL COLLEGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY , IN WHICH MOST OF DOCTORS WHO ARE INTO PRIVATE PRACTICE HARDLY TO BE SEEN IN THE MEDICAL HOSPITALS , SPECIALLY THOSE WHO BELONGS TO THE DOMINANT CASTE COMMUNITY HAVING InI OF THE POLITICIANS AND CAPABLE TO MANIPULATE WITH POWER OF ILLGAINED MONEY . IN SUCH TEACHING MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITALS , IT\’S PATHETIC TO SEE THE SUFFERING OF THE POOR HELPLESS UNDERPRIVILEGED DOWNTRODDEN INOCENT PATIENTS . WHEN IT COMES TO ACCADAMICS , ASTONISHINGLY AKWARD SITUATION . THE STUDENTS LEFT ON THEIR OWN TO LOITERING AROUND THE CORRIDORS OF COLLEGE, HOSPITAL AS PER THEIR CONVENIENCE . THERE IS PERFECT UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE DOCTORS AND STUDENTS . GIVE THEM ATTENDENCE ,ASSESSMENT MARKS AND PASSING MARKS IN THE EXANS , THEY ARE HAPPY , WHETHER SOME ONE CONDUCT CLSSSES OR NOT. I THINK STUDENTS PASSING OUT FROM SUCH MEDICAL COLLEGES ARE MORE OF A LIABILITY TO OUR COUNTRY FOR NOT HAVING REQUIRED KNOWLEDGE SKILLS ACUMEN EXPIRANCE COMMITMENT ABOVE ALL LACK OF VALUES,MORALS &ETHEICS……. GOVERNMENTS ARE SPENDING CRORES OF RUPEES IN MAKING OF SUCH DOCTORS , POOR HELPLESS UNDERPRIVILEGED DOWNTRODDEN INOCENT PATIENTS SUBMIT THEMSELVES WITH THE GOOD FAITH OF GETTING BETTER HEALTH . UNFORTUNATELY NOTHING OF SUCH THINGS HAPPENS IN SUCH TEACHING MEDICAL COLLEGES . WE ARE PROUD ALWAYS KEEN TO TALK MUCH ABOUT COLLEGES LIKE MANIPAL, PGI, AIIMS, CMC AND FEW OTHER. THE ONE AT THE BOTTOM , WE NEVER MAKE AN ISSUE DESPITE THEY MAKE MOCKERY OF MEDICAL PROFESSION . THIS IS INDYYAA……
