Grievance Description

Here
this question arises that when because of the apathy of the concerned
department as they have not sprayed the anti larva solution in the various
Mohallas like Surekapuram and adjoining areas for many months culminating into
alarmingly rising in the dengue cases in the area, why the government is not
ordering the enquiry in the matter so that truth may come out of those who are
drawing huge salary from public exchequer without performing duties to serve
the people. Whether it is not a matter of concern that 80 percent of people
suffering from an acute crisis of unemployment and those somehow arranged jobs
in the public sector not doing duties and only drawing salaries from the public
exchequer.

The
applicant again wants to draw the kind attention of Honourable public
functionaries to the menace of the infectious disease Dengue which is
consequent of Mosquitos biting and now entire District Mirzapur is under the
captivity of this giant disease. This terrible disease is prevailing in the
district because of the lackadaisical approach of the concerned staffs of
government at the district level. For detail vide attached documents to the
grievance.

Entire state is under fear psychosis of dengue but  the government of Uttar Pradesh is still sleeping.
Rakesh Kumar reached the Balrampur Hospital with his father who had high fever for the past two days. Suspecting that he might be suffering from dengue, the doctors advised that he should be admitted. Worse still, the patient realised that getting admission and reaching a doctor in the OPD was another struggle.
“There are limited beds. I was told to wait for some time, as one of the patients was to be discharged. Finally, I got a bed for my father and his blood samples have been sent for dengue test,” said Rakesh after getting his father admitted.
While fever is a scare among patients, getting admission to a hospital these days is a Herculean Task. Lucknow has reported over 600 dengue cases and at least 400 patients have been admitted to hospitals this season. The Civil Hospital admitted over 300.
“We have admitted 23 dengue patients out of the 100 who tested positive and are now falling short of beds,” said Mohd Shahid Zama, chief medical superintendent (officiating) of Lok Bandhu Hospital.
“We are planning to shift some patients to another place so that more patients, as they come in, can be accommodated,” said Zama.
Dengue patients cannot be kept with other patients as there’s a risk of the others getting infected through mosquito bite, he added.
Major hospitals in the city have limited beds in the dengue ward but these are not enough to accommodate a horde of fever patients coming to the OPD.
“Every patient having fever first thinks that it might be dengue. It’s ok to be cautious, but one should not panic,” said Dr PK Gupta, former president of Indian Medical Association, Lucknow and an eminent microbiologist.
“At present, we have 54 dengue patients in three wards (male, female and paediatric) and in private wards. The maximum number of patients we had in one day was 76,” said Dr Ashutosh Dubey, medical superintendent of Civil Hospital.
At Balrampur Hospital too, beds marked for dengue patients are occupied. “We got over 80 dengue patients and about 35 required admission. I have asked the staff to manage admission of patients coming to our hospital,” said Dr Rajiv Lochan, director, Balrampur HospitalThe chief medical officer (Lucknow) has advised hospitals to ensure dedicated dengue wards and other facilities for patients till such patients keep coming in.
Efforts are being made to make people aware about dengue and how to prevent it. “Prevention is the key to prevent dengue. But if one takes ill, going to a doctor for proper treatment is the best option, instead of self-medication,” said Dr Raman Kumar, president of the Academy of Family Physicians of India.

How the dengue will be curbed if there is no effective control over the staffs at district level ipso facto obvious from the report?

Undoubtedly cases of dengue are rising in the Mirzapur district but instead of referring the matters to other districts, they are taking zero steps in order to curb it and even precautionary steps like the regular spray of anti larva solutions are not made by the concerned public staffs.  
Please tell me last date when the spray was made last time by the team of the department and feedback of the team members with the signature of the residents taken during the spray is made. According to the subordinate of chief medical officer Mirzapur, anti larva medicine is sprayed either weekly or at 15 days. In his report, he did not ensure that when the last time, anti larva medicine was sprayed in the Mohalla Surekapuram. It is most unfortunate that why not detail report is being sought in regard to the spray of anti larva medicine in the entire Mirzapur. Think about the gravity of the situation that even the matter was under consideration at the August portal of government of Uttar Pradesh but concerned staff did not think it appropriate to at least once spray may be done so that anger of the people may be lessened whether it is not a reflection of insolence. Undoubtedly God granted the rational intelligence to the concerned staffs but he must use it constructively and he must be loyal to those people who are providing huge emoluments of salary. 
Most revered Sir –Your applicant invites the kind attention of Hon’ble Sir with due respect to following submissions as follows.
1-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that government is spending the huge amount of fund in order to control the breeding of mosquitoes but most surprising is that instead of decreasing, mosquitoes are increasing alarmingly because these funds are not being utilized properly due to lack of transparency and accountability.
 2-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that following complaint was submitted on the Jansunwai portal of the government of Uttar Pradesh but concerned instead of taking positive action in this regard, they wrote cryptic words by sitting in the office and got the complaint disposed of.
 3-It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that it is most unfortunate that when the High court has issued guidelines in this direction to curb the spread of dengue disease and the government has opened the door of the treasury but the result is zero because of the incompetence and non-impeccable integrity of the concerned staffs.
                       This is a humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that how can it be justified to withhold public services arbitrarily and promote anarchy, lawlessness and chaos in an arbitrary manner by making the mockery of law of land? There is need of the hour to take harsh steps against the wrongdoer in order to win the confidence of citizenry and strengthen the democratic values for healthy and prosperous democracy. For this, your applicant shall ever pray you, Hon’ble Sir.                                                          Yours sincerely

Applicant again wants to draw the kind attention of Hon’ble public functionaries to the menace of the infectious disease Dengue which is consequent of Mosquitos biting and now entire District-Mirzapur is under the captivity of this giant disease.

Most revered Sir –Your applicant invites the kind attention of the Hon’ble Sir with due respect to following submissions as follows.
1-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that applicant wants to raise the issue how the six members of volunteers of B.J.P. party whose government is installed in the state came under the grasp of this epidemic disease belonging to Kon block of District-Mirzapur. Description is as follows-

For detail, please take a glance of scanned picture of Amar Ujala published news story attached with this representation.
2-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that in this Mirzapur district few years ago superintendent of jail died of dengue while he was posted in the district Mirzapur.

 3-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that undoubtedly behaviours of the staffs like tyrant because of ineffective control of senior rank staffs in the district and most of the staffs are posted in the district for many years if transferred managed to remain in the district by applying so many tricks.

            This is a humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that how can it be justified to withhold public services arbitrarily and promote anarchy, lawlessness and chaos in an arbitrary manner by making the mockery of law of land? There is need of the hour to take harsh steps against the wrongdoer in order to win the confidence of citizenry and strengthen the democratic values for healthy and prosperous democracy. For this, your applicant shall ever pray you, Hon’ble Sir.                                                                                                                               Yours sincerely

Undoubtedly dengue is the serious disease which is the consequent of biting of mosquitoes so in order to control the dengue anti larva solution must be sprayed in the area after a fixed interval of time but it seems that our public staff is not interested to curb the Dengue disease which is quite obvious from dereliction of duty of the subordinate staff at the district level who are not showing any enthusiasm in this direction to take preventive initiatives in this case so that all the preventions maybe taken timely so it is obligatory duty of the concerned government functionaries to take proper initiative in the matter so that menace dengue could be overcome. Think about the gravity of situation that scores of representations were submitted before the accountable public functionaries but is still spray was not made by the concerned staff of the government which is showing anarchy in the government machinery and our accountable public functionaries are mute spectators of this anarchy.
