Raisen, MP, Jan 17 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said his programme of sudden inspections would continue during tours in the state.
While on a personal visit to Badi block, he inspected the Googalwada Primary Health Centre, about 100 km from this district headquarters, expressed anger over disorganisation and directed issuance of a show cause notice against Chief Medical Officer S K Meena. Mr Chouhan directed the collector to submit a report, in ten days, on availability of health services at every hospital in the district.
''A major factor for health services being affected in rural areas is doctors normally not reaching there and that is why the state government decided to provide a special allowance of Rs 10,000 to physicians posted in rural regions,'' the chief minister later told mediapersons.
Alleging that the Centre's stepmotherly treatment was also responsible for the power crisis as Madhya Pradesh's share was not being provided in entirety, he added that development would be the chief issue in the Betul Lok Sabha bypoll and the Bharatiya Janata Party organisation would soon decide on its candidate.
