GUNTUR: The district administration on Wednesday launched the ‘Operation GGH’, a 72-hour special drive aimed at improving sanitation and infrastructure facilities at the Government General Hospital (GGH).
Apart from keeping the hospital wards and its premises clean, the authorities also decided to demolish some of the old buildings and to construct new structures.
District collector Kantilal Dande along with other officials supervised the works being taken up by 500 sanitation workers under the directions of as many as 50 district-level officials.
Apart from the sanitation workers of GGH, workers from the Guntur Municipal Corporation were pressed into service.
As there is a possibility of chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu vising the GGH as part of his district tour on October 2, the district officials are taking up the massive drive in the GGH to set right all things in the hospital by that time.
Meanwhile, responding to the call given by the district collector, the district officials have donated about `10 lakh for development of the GGH.
