PUDUCHERRY: Communist Party of India state unit secretary R Viswanathan said government general hospitals and primary health centres do not have enough stock of drugs for the treatment of blood pressure and diabetes, which were on the rise in the Union Territory.

In a statement on Saturday, he said the patients approaching government hospitals are turned away due to unavailability of drugs.

The CPI leader said, the government was playing with the lives of the people and are showing a careless attitude without procuring enough life saving drugs.

The CPI leader, terming the suspension of eight police personnel in connection with their alleged involvement in the prostitution racket involving minors, said it was just an eyewash and no action has been taken against some powerful politicians who had a link with the racket.

Viswanathan said that while the government is celebrating Teacher’s Day, students were  protesting  the scarcity of teachers in schools.

Pointing that there was no constructive development under the N R Congress rule, Viswanthan said that the people will realize the ruling party’s anti-people policies.
