Citizens protest against delay in issuance of polio certificates


RAWALPINDI: People have voiced a strong protest against the alleged delaying tactics being used in the issuance of polio certificates at the Holy Family Hospital. The polio certificates are issued to the passengers during day time shift and on the other hand, the influential persons are issued these certificates during night shifts too. The citizens said that they have to wait for the medical superintendent (MS) for 5 to 6 hours after having been administered polio drops. The MS is always stated to be in a meeting whenever inquired from the staff. This way the citizens have to suffer mental agony while standing in long queues for hours. The sources said that the polio certificates have been issued during night shifts on the recommendations of the politicians. Holy family Hospital MS Arshid Ali Sabir said that certificates are issued during day time and added that the certificate can be issued at any time in case of an emergency. People have appealed the Punjab chief minister to ease up the process of the issuance of polio certificates.
