Three Bhopal patients die

BHOPAL, July 4. from The Statesman
Three patients asked to leave when the Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research Centre was locked out on the night of 2 July died yesterday. The Bhopal Gas Peedit Mahila Udyog Sangathan has decided to file a special leave petition before the Supreme Court to ensure that the hospital, where doctors have been on strike for a wage hike, is not closed down.

No money for doctors, but management buy themselves smart cars
The hospital, set up in 2000 with a corpus of Rs 388 crore after a 1991 Supreme Court order, discharged all patients on Saturday as the doctors remained adamant. The 260-bed BHMRC admits up to 30 patients and provides services to more than 130 people daily.

Survivors fear the hospital management and trustees have close links to Union Carbide
When it closed, a few patients were shifted to Kamla Nehru Hospital while some others looked for private facilities. The chief minister, Mr Babulal Gaur, told The Statesman: “Since the hospital is under direct supervision of the Supreme Court, the government cannot interfere in its functioning.”
Asked if the government can broker a truce, he said: “Unless we get a written complaint, we can’t do much.” He said he would get his chief secretary to look into the matter.
