Ranchi, July 18: The issues, which are likely to be taken up by the Jharkhand Assembly Petition Committee members when they meet the officials of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (Rims) tomorrow, may cause a flutter once more.
The non-formation of the Rims regulations and improper monitoring of different development projects by the general body of the hospital are most likely to be taken up during the meeting.
While Rims officials are apprehensive of the queries put forth by the committee about not being able to formulate the hospital regulations till now, the committee members said it hampers proper functioning of the Rims.
Activities are halted unless the regulations are framed.
The members are also expected to review the budget allotted to the hospital and why a major portion of it could not be spent for the development of the hospital all these years. The proposed formation of new departments at the Rims is also likely to be taken up by the committee members. Not surprisingly, before the meeting, the Rims officials were busy preparing the files containing information of different projects. Interestingly, one or two files, which the officials earlier stated as missing, have also been found.
For the proper functioning of any machinery, its regulations should be formed first. But it is completely missing in the Rims. We would like to explore the reasons why the hospital could not frame the regulations, RJD MLA and committee member Girinath Singh said.
Rims director J. Prasad said all the formalities regarding the preparations of files, which the committee had demanded have been done and that would be submitted to the committee tomorrow. The details of the budget allotted to us have also been given in the reports. We are ready to answer their queries, he added.
