Silchar Medical College lacks key departments

By Correspondent

SILCHAR, May 31 � Mithan Paul (27) recently died in a road accident as there is no neurological department and neurosurgeon in Silchar Medical College. After the accident, Mithan was taken to Silchar Medical College but a doctor said that since his condition is critical he should be shifted to Guwahati. But on the way, Mithan breathed his last. This is only one case; there are uncountable examples of such cases.

The Silchar Medical College was established in 1968 but it is unfortunate that many important departments have not yet been set up here. These include neurological, nephrology, burns unit and plastic surgery. Many memoranda have been submitted to the State Government but there has been no result.

To discuss all this, a meeting was organised in the town jointly by the Ellora Merchant Association and the Club Road Merchant Association. It must be noted that Mithan Paul was a businessman of the Ellora Market Complex.

In the meeting, it was decided that a memorandum will be given to the Chief Minister as well as the Health Minister to establish a full-fledged neurological department with a neuro surgeon. In the memorandum, it will be mentioned that it should be functional within August 15, otherwise the people will go for an agitation. The people will submit memoranda to the newly-elected MLAs of the valley.

Dr SK Nandi Purkayastha, ex-principal of Silchar Medical College, said that since 1975 he has been trying to establish a neurological department, but the State Government always rejects the proposal.

Presently, the scenario at Silchar Medical College is completely different. The buildings are repaired and renovated. New buildings have also been constructed. But there is no trace of the neurological department. Dr SS Dhar, ex-principal of SMC, said that he gave a proposal for establishing important departments like neurological, nephrology, burns unit and plastic surgery to the then Health Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma. Till today there has been no result of that report. Under a Central scheme, a trauma section was set up but the concerned doctor in charge of the section is not a neurosurgeon. Dr Dh
