JAMUGURIHAT, Dec 22 - Medicines worth approximately a few lakh rupees were recently recovered in an abandoned state near NH-52 on the bank of the Jiyabhoroli river under Balipara Block Primary Health Centre in Sonitpur district.

At a cursory glance, the abandoned medicines are suspected to belong to the National Health Mission, which are supplied to the hospitals with the inscription �not for sale�. A large number of medicines, it may be mentioned, are unfit for use as they have crossed the expriry date.

However, as to why these medicines were discarded in such a reckless manner has been a matter of public concern. The district health officials are reportedly not paying due attention to this incident.

At a time when patients in Government hospitals are often confronted with problems like non-availability of free medicines, such an irresponsible action on the part of the Health Department has obviously evoked strong reaction among the conscious section of the people here.

Not surprisingly, a sizeable section of the local populace have felt that the incident warrants a thorough enquiry.
