Uttarakhand: Former chairman of Other Backward Classes Commission met CM Dhami, raised the issue of parking in government institutions

Patients from the poor section reach Doon Medical College Hospital for treatment. But despite the increasing number of patients, there is no proper parking arrangement in the OPD block of Doon Hospital. Due to this, patients and attendants have to face problems. Patients and attendants have to park their vehicles on the road in paid parking, for which parking fee has to be paid.

Former member of Doon Hospital Management Committee and former chairman of State Other Backward Classes Commission Ashok Verma met Chief Minister Dhami and appealed to him to make parking free in all government institutions. Ashok Verma says that during the meeting, he suggested to Chief Minister Pushkar Dhami that in government offices and MDDA complexes where parking fee is being charged, either parking should be made free or parking should be made free for the first 30 minutes in public interest.

Ashok Verma says that in Doon Hospital, sometimes patients do not get a doctor and sometimes no officer is available in any office. If a person has work with an employee, then sometimes that employee is also not available. Therefore, if free parking facility is provided for the first 30 minutes, it will provide great relief to the people.

Ashok Verma said that Doon Hospital is the main hospital of the capital. But the situation is that Doon Hospital was integrated and converted into a medical college. Since then, the number of patients in Doon Hospital has also increased. But parking fee is being charged from patients and attendants even for parking vehicles on the road outside the OPD block. Many poor patients coming here are unable to pay the parking fee. Therefore, he has appealed to the Chief Minister for free parking in Doon Hospital.
