Private hospitals will reserve beds:
On Tuesday, under the chairmanship of District Magistrate C Ravi Shankar, a meeting was held with the doctors of government and private hospitals, Roorkee Army Hospital and private lab operators regarding prevention of corona infection during the upcoming Kumbh Mela. At the meeting, the District Magistrate said that private hospitals would have to maintain beds and ambulance reserves in view of corona infection.
In the meeting held in DM Auditorium Roshanabad, the District Magistrate said that private labs will also be able to conduct tests at the district level to increase the investigation. During the Kumbh Mela, the DM called upon the specialist doctors to be ready for on-duty duty. He said that private hospitals can also serve as volunteers by setting up stalls.
Kumbh Mela is also an opportunity for everyone to show their functionality with challenge. He said that private and government institutions will work together. Chief Medical Officer SK Jha said that preventing corona infection during the Kumbh Mela is a challenge for the health department. One has to work unitedly with mutual coordination and responsibility.
Meladhikari tried with the saints
Fair officer Deepak Rawat inspected the preparations for the Kumbh along with Juna Akhara President Shrimhant Premagiri and Secretary Maheshpuri by inspecting Mahamandaleshwar Maa Shubhamurthi Gate at Gujarawala Bhavan and the ancient Siddhpeeth Pandeywala area at Jwalapur. The magistrate directed the officials of the concerned departments to make immediate arrangements.
Shrimhant Premagiri said that Ganga water comes under the mother Shubhamurthi gate. Due to which silt accumulates under the bridge. The magistrate asked the Executive Engineer of Lonivi to level the area by putting sandwiches from where Ganga water comes back. There are leakages in the drinking water line at two-three places under the bridge.
The Executive Engineer of the Jal Sansthan instructed to correct the leakage till Thursday. Srimanta Prem Giri said that the work of preparing the chariot of Peshwai will be done in this area. The artisans who prepare it will remain the same. Water will be needed for them. The magistrate also instructed the officials to make proper water arrangements and check the measles-Khatauni of the enclosed area by putting an iron net on the bank of the area under the bridge.
After this, the Meladikari reached the ancient Siddhapeet Pandeywala in Jwalapur with the saints. The magistrate inquired from the authorities regarding the water system in the Siddhapeeth Pandeywala area. Jal Nigam officials said that water connections will be given. The magistrate also inspected the toilets. The magistrate instructed the MNA to do the daily cleanliness of the ancient Siddhpeeth Pandey Wala complex. Officials of the Energy Corporation said that highmast lights will be installed soon. The magistrate directed to arrange lights on the electric poles as well. The magistrate said that an ambulance and a doctor will have regular duties in it.
Former Chief Minister Harish Rawat again visited the saints.
Harish Rawat, former Uttarakhand Chief Minister and National General Secretary of Congress, is once again reaching the shelter of saints in Haridwar. This time Rawat will talk to the saints about Kumbh. Rawat will hold talks with saints in Haridwar on Wednesday. According to him, he will talk to the saints about Kumbh. According to Rawat, the state government is not taking the Kumbh event seriously.
The state may have to bear its loss. This is not the first time that Harish Rawat is going to Haridwar to meet the saints. Even before this, he met the saints and apologized for declaring the stream of Ganga flowing through Har Ki Paidi as an escape channel. The effect of Harish Rawat’s apology was that the government had to issue separate orders and still the government has not been able to resolve the dispute completely.
The area up to Devprayag was declared as fair area during Harish Rawat’s tenure. The government is not in the mood to do so at this time. The government is trying to keep the fair limited in view of the corona infection and Harish Rawat is constantly insisting on organizing the fair on a wider scale. On the other hand, the government is having to sweat a lot in persuading the saints. In such a situation, this time Harish Rawat’s visit to the saints can pose another challenge for the state government.
